NC COMICON 2012
The doors open at 11 AM for regular admission tickets. The convention lasts from 11am-6PM. We can meet down there between 10-11AM. I plan to be there by 10AM to get in line for for the tickets and to drop off flyer to promote our group. If anyone wants to carpool there we can discuss it in the weeks to come.
There are a number of special guests including comic artists Frank Cho and Bernard Chang. They will usually sign books and sometimes will do sketches for a fee.
On Saturaday night after the convention center closes, they are having a special presention of "The Intergalactic Nemesis" at The Carolina Theatre in downtown Durham.
The Intergalactic Nemesis is a live action graphic novel that is shown on a huge screen. Also on stage are voice and sound effects actors who will do the voices, sounds, and music for the show. It's similiar to how radio shows were produced in the 1930's.
Admission to the convention is $10 for the weekend. So if you want to go back on Sunday, you would not have to pay any extra money. If you want to stay to see "The Intergalactic Nemesis", you need to buy the tickets for that show which includes admission into the convention for the entire weekend. The ticket price for the show and the convention is $24.
Some may just want to go to the convention, while others will likely stay for the show as well.
