MASSive Comic Con, featuring celebrity guests, A-list comic creators, famous cosplayers, and more, is coming to Worcester's DCU Center this month offering one major family perk -- free admission for children 10 and under with a paid adult admission.
Running Saturday, June 24, and Sunday, June 25, the weekend features WWE Hall of Famers Diamond Dallas Page and Booker T, and actor and musician Chester Rushing, best known for his role as Tommy H. on Stranger Things. Kids will have the opportunity to participate in their own Kids Con track, with programming specifically designed for them, and a Kids Costume Contest.
"MASSive Comic Con is an amazing value and great experience for comic fans, families with kids, and those looking to attend their first comic con," said Chris Proulx, event co-founder. "Fans can easily interact with our celebrity guests and comic writers and artists, and participate in the many on-site activities, which are included in their ticket price."
The weekend will also feature some of the world's top comic creators, including a team who helped build the Harley Quinn series for DC Comics: husband-and-wife team Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, Frank Tieri, Stéphane Roux, Paul Mounts, and John Timms.
"The Harley Quinn comic creators will be prominently featured at MASSive Comic Con to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the hit comic series," Proulx said. "Our attendees will have lots of opportunities to meet and greet the creators and to find out what goes into making great comics."
Other attractions on tap include movie car appearances by the Massachusetts Ghostbusters, Hero Army cosplayers, and the 501st New England (Star Wars characters), exclusive panels, tabletop gaming, video game tournaments, light saber training classes, and a Pirate Scavenger Hunt that enters participants into a raffle to win a treasure chest of great prizes.
