Despite attempting to put on a much anticipated show this weekend, the Boston Comic Con showrunners have had to cancel it in light of the massive manhunt and lockdown gripping the Boston area.
ATTENTION: Boston Comic Con has been cancelled. We will try to reschedule for a later date. Thank you for your support & understanding.

With guests on planes sitting on runways, no one able to get to the convention center and a house to house search going on for a suspect in Monday’s Marathon bombing, the organizers really had no choice but to shut things down.
Cancellation riders don’t usually allow for acts of terrorism or police actions, so this could potentially be a big loss for them.
Best wishes to everyone for a recovery and safe return to wherever they were heading from.
