Organizers intend on making Vermont Comic Con an annual event.

comic_conThe first annual Vermont Comic Con happens this weekend, October 25 to 26, at the Sheraton Burlington Hotel & Conference Center in South Burlington. Those characters, and a host of others, will be in town for the family-friendly event, organized by New Hampshire-based Moulton Comic Expo in conjunction with Comic Art House.

In addition to the “celebrity draw,” says event organizer Elaine Manley, convention-goers can check out booths from sponsors such as Tilt Classic Arcade and Ale House, the Gamers Grotto and the Vermont Department of Libraries. Gamers can participate in tournaments of Dungeons & Dragons, Magic: The Gathering, and King of Tokyo, among others. Kids can hang with a performance-art group called Hero Army devoted to cosplay — that’s “costume play,” for the uninitiated — or check out a range of pop culture artifacts and comic books. On Sunday, the American Red Cross will be on-site for a vampire-themed blood drive.
