ComiCONN and TerrifiCon – CosPlay Invades CT Casinos

As comic book movies have become of increasing importance to Hollywood — the big box office of “X-Men” in 2000 is generally considered the turning point — there’s been more and more movie and television involvement  with comic book superheroes, and the events that follow.  Connecticut casinos will be providing events for your inner Superhero, starting this weekend at Foxwoods Resort Casino.

Marvel Comics, or DC Comics? Which Superheroes do you prefer?  In case you don’t follow DC and/or Marvel comics, cartoons and movies (like me) you probably don’t know where to start. Here’s a quick review of which superheroes belong where:

DC: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, Shazam, Martian Manhunter, Hawkman and Green Arrow.

Marvel: Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Ant-Man, such teams as the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men and the Inhumans, with antagonists such as Doctor Doom, Red Skull, Green Goblin, Ultron, Doctor Octopus, Thanos, Magneto and Loki.

Altered Reality Entertainment presents ComiCONN at Foxwoods Resort Casino, June 30th & July 1, 2018.

Whatever floats your superhero boat, Foxwoods begins the fun with  ComiCONN 2018 in the Premier Ballroom, June 30th & July 1st.  Tickets range from $10 – $99 with the festivities starting at 10:00AM. (For your safety, there are some items that guests are prohibited from bringing inside of the Fox and Grand Theaters. Please click here for the full list.)

The event will include all the same aspects that fans have come to expect from a comic con — celebrity appearances from the big and small screen, industry-leading comic book artists, and the best vendors in the market with toys and collectibles, as well as the ever-popular cosplay competitions and events.

ComiCONN “A Show for the Fans by the Fans!” was created by Erik Yacko in 2009. ComiCONN’s name came from adding an extra “N” to the end of the word “comicon.”  ComiCONN began in  2010 as a one-day event.  In 2014, it expanded to a three-day event in Bridgeport. In 2016, Connecticut ComiCONN joined forces with Altered Reality Entertainment.
