You've been to comic book conventions, you've been to Six Flags, now you can do both at once! It's the Great Comic Book Adventure at Six Flags in New Jersey!
The first I heard of it was when a friend sent me the link to the Facebook invitation. Six Flags Great Adventure (known simply as Great Adventure to us NJers) is holding its first ever comic book convention in the park on Sunday, May 29.
Check out dozens of vendors with everything from bargain comics to investment grade first issues. Meet Golden Age GREEN LANTERN artist Irwin Hasen plus fan favorites Lee Weeks, Fred Hembeck, Daxiong and more! Participate in workshops, panel discussions, a charity auction and a costume contest.
Great Adventure is a place we've all put in our time here in NJ whether it be school field trips or just groups of friends going to get season passes. What I've always loved about the park were it's DC-themed rollercoasters (even if I walked away more than once with whiplash). This year of course is the big opening of the new Green Lantern coaster which is said to be pretty wild.
Show hours are from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and there's a link for discount tickets here (just wait for the Comic Book Ticket window to pop up).
