Tri-State Comic-Con

June 3

Big Sandy Superstore Arena | 1 Civic Center Drive

10:00am - 6:00pm

The Tri-State Comic Con (Tricon WV) will be entering its sixth year of celebrating the best of the comic industry in Huntington. Tricon is recognized for gaining the participation of the most active creators in the comic community. And while mainstream creators are always happy to meet new fans, one of the show’s primary interests is to help shine a spotlight on independent creators in the region. Comic books have taken the entertainment industry by storm. Be it books, movies or games, comics have become the most influential medium in storytelling.

Guests include comic greats Rico Renzi (Spider-Gwen, The Incredible Squirrel Girl), Ian McGinty (AdventureTime, Welcome To Showside, Rick & Morty), and many others. This lineup has already roused the area’s comic enthusiasts, but a recent reveal has sent a thrill through the community.

Joining us this year is voice-acting superstar Neil Kaplan, Kaplan is known for voicing Optimus Prime in Transformers, Emperor Zarkon in Netflix’s Voltron series, and the dragon Arurelion Sol in League of Legends.

Also featured is WWE’s Boogeyman, who has found notoriety for his extreme performances and costuming both inside and outside the ring. Most recently, Boogeyman competed in the 2015 Royal Rumble and the WWE Network’s Swerved.

The Tri-State Comic Con will take place Saturday, June 3, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena in downtown Huntington. General Admission is $10 for adults and free for children under 10 with a paid adult admission. VIP passes are currently available for $25.
