A new comic book convention is coming to Buffalo and the Western New York area, the hometown of Cosmic Book News, this Summer with the Nickel City Con.
Buffalo's premier comic book convention will take place August 13th and 14th at the Buffalo Convention Center.
Scheduled guests to appear include the Comic Book Men, Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, Michael Zapcic and Ming Chen; legendary comic book writer and artist Neal Adams, in addition to his son Joel Adams; Ray Park, known for portraying Darth Maul in Star Wars: The Phantom Menace; WWE Superstar Ric "Woo!" Flair will be on hand; Brett Dalton from Marvel's Agents Of SHIELD; The Magicians and Game of Thrones' Esme Bianco, The Magician's and Star Trek's Rick Worthy and more are also set for the Nickel City Con.
The Nickel City Con is being brought together by Buffalo's biggest sports collectible and comic book store, Dave & Adams, with sponsors including our own Buffalo Bills and Buffalo Sabres.
I recently visited Dave & Adams (located near the Easter Hills Mall at 8075 Sheridan Dr. Williamsville, NY), and it's incredible. It's a huge store with tons of sports collectibles, memorabilia and merchandise in addition to weekly comic books, back issues, action figures, gaming and lots more.
Check out a couple pics from the store below.
