That’s quite a lineup. If you add to the mix lots of fine people selling their wares and promoting their talents its set to be one hell of good event.
One such person selling the results of her talents is my very good friend Sonnet O’Dell who will have copies of her books for sale at the event as well other nice goodies. Go find her at the convention and say Hi. Even better, buy one (or multiples of many, as she has more than a few) of her books. They are rather excellent.
More info coming but if you want buy tickets, check times, revised guests, or just tell Lee and Lee how wonderful they are for organizing such a great event, go to the Worcester Comic Con website at http://www.worcester-comiccon.com/
