Darth Vader, Storm
Troopers and Robots, oh my!
A star studded weekend was
waiting for those who came to the South Florida Fairgrounds this last
weekend of the year. And all the fun and collectibles that were on hand made
for a winning combination at the very first Tri County Comic Con.
The lineup of celebrities was incredible: you were able to
meet Walter Koenig (Star Trek), Priscilla Barnes (Three's Company), Lauren
Chapin (Father Knows Best), Jeff Breslauer (Superboy), Debi Storm (Dr.
Kildare), Cathy St. George (Former Playmate), Dan Stapleton (Magician), Joel
D. Wynkoop (Actor), Eric Basaldua (Comic Artist), Tommy Castillo (Comic
Artist), Pablo Marcos (Comic Artist), Rob Granito (Comic Artist), Brian
Mitchell (Artist), Greg "The Hammer" Valentine (Wrestler), Roy Wayne "Honky
Tonk Man" Farris (Wrestler), Jim "The Anvil" Neidhart (Wrestler), Mike
"Virgil" Jones (Wrestler), Andrea Dean Van Scoyoc (Author), Markisha Bunn
(Author/Poet), Daisy D (Female Impersonator) and many more.
Along with the V.I.P.s were dealers of comic and
collectible related merchandise: you could buy figurines, t-shirts, original
art, autographs, pirate items, specialty car tags, comic books, posters,
banners, stickers, just anything that a collector's heart desires.
Contests, raffles and karaoke made this a very well
rounded event where you could spend time among the hobby you love.
A big Thank You goes to Tri County Comic
Con who generously gave a table
to the Neverending Necklace. Thanks to these Promoters, we could add 3
feet and 1 inch to the Project.
Make it your plan for the coming year to visit the next
Comic Con in June:
Let's bring the world closer together, one bead at a time.
