This past weekend Hartford experienced the debut of Hartford Comic Con at the XL Center. There were long lines before the doors opened at 10 a.m. From what I saw, this convention will be coming back to Connecticut.
There will be a few more entries with pictures coming in the next few days.
The XL Center will be the destination for cosplay, comic books, and geeks galore when Hartford Comic Con kicks off at 10 a.m. Saturday.
If you are a fan of the television show, Spartacus, then you shouldn’t miss this show since Katrina Law (Arrow), Liam McIntyre, Anna Hutchison (The Cabin in the Woods), Ellen Hollman, and Stephen Dunlevy will be on-hand signing autographs.
Other celebrities include Kyla Kenedy (The Walking Dead), Michael Massee (The Amazing Spider-man), Brando Eaton (CSI, Dexter) and Larry Thomas, the Soup Nazi from Seinfeld, will also be in attendance. You can find out about the celebrities here.
There will also be artists and vendors at the convention as well. Find out about the artists here and the vendors here.
