It's going to be an amazing March for me and my two youngest kids — Indiana Comic Con is coming to the Indianapolis Convention Center, March 14 – 16. Whether you're on Team Marvel, Team DC, or prefer hanging out with the Indie crowd, there's something for every fan of the illustrated pulp serial.
The Indiana Comic Con website says they'll be taking up over 100,000 square feet of the Convention Center with 150 booths of comics, cosplay (dressing up as costumed characters), videos and video games, toys and action figures, anime, Star Wars, trading cards, and original artwork.
Tickets are $20 for one day, $45 for all three days, and kids 12 and under are free. Tickets must be purchased from TicketMaster though, so don't forget the additional "convenience fees."
And no Comic Con is complete without celebrity guests. Indiana's premier event will feature Evan Peters (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Kick-Ass), Caity Lotz (Arrow, Mad Men), Arya Stark (Game of Thrones), and Daniel Cudmore (Colossus from the X-Men movies).
But for the real comic fan, the true glory will come from the comic artists and writers themselves who show up. According to the website, we're going to have a chance to meet George Pérez (Avengers, Teen Titans, Infinity Gauntlet), Rich Butler (Avengers, Fantastic Four), Bob Camp (co-creator of Ren & Stimpy), and Steve Englehart (Marvel and DC writer), to name just a few. If you want to see the entire lineup, visit the Indiana Comic Con website.
The days and times of Comic Con are:
- Friday: 12 pm – 6 pm
- Saturday:10 am – 6 pm
- Sunday:10 am – 5 pm
