Rhode Island Comic Con Recap

A Great Weekend at Rhode Island Comic Con

by Jason Harris

The New England Horror Writers participated in the first ever Rhode Island Comic Con, which from the crowds that were there this past weekend it will not be a one-hit wonder.

I heard from a lot of people that were happy that Rhode Island now has a comic con to go to. This weekend these convention attendees received an excellent convention with celebrities from movies, television, paranormal investigators, and even wrestling stars.

This convention had more people on Saturday then Rock and Shock had its entire weekend a couple weeks ago. There were two reasons for this. The first reason its the first ever Rhode Island Comic Con and the second reason is the celebrities they had. They had John De Lancie, who played Q on three different Star Trek series, Robert Picardo, who played the Doctor on Star Trek:Voyager and in Star Trek: First Contact, Nicholas Brendon, who was Xander in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and lately was the boyfriend of Penelope Garcia in Criminal Minds, Gil Gerard, who played Buck Rogers in Buck Rogers in the 25th Century and Dirk Benedict, who played Faceman on the television series The A-Team. There were plenty of other stars too. It was just too many to name, but you can always click here to see the other guests.

The crowds were like the ocean; never-ending and unrelenting. There were so many people I decided to just take pictures and not get names so a lot of the pictures won’t have captions. It was hard enough taking pictures with the crowds let alone trying to get names.
