Hey, That’s My Cape!: New Joisey Comic Con

New Jersey. Home of 24-hour diners, The Sopranos, Bon Jovi and me. Now the New Jersey Comic Con Wizard World Convention can call my fair state it’s home. Too bad no one will be calling the show anything at all because it’s a really long name.

You’ve heard of “event fatigue” in comics? Well prepare yourself for “convention fatigue.” This week Gareb Shamus, CEO of Wizard Entertainment, announced his NINTH convention for 2010. The NJCCWWC (good god) will be landing at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center October 15-17. “Much of my family lives or has lived in the Garden State,” Shamus said, “All my hometown friends there were bugging me to do this for them and their kids.” ORLY? Because it’s so hard to make that short train ride into New York City ONE WEEK earlier for the bigger and better New York Comic Con produced by Reed Exhibitions. I know I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Trains are such a drag.

    It's ridiculous, but it's 20 minutes away from my apartment… so why not go?

    Maybe this is Wizard's version of the Avengers 50 states initiative? One con a week per state with Lou Ferrigno appearing at each one.

  3. Nope, he's still doing that too.

    Does this mean he's NOT doing Big Apple the same week at NYCC?
