MAD Event Management, the company behind Long Beach Comic Con/Expo adds a third show to their series. New Jersey Comic Expo will take place November 21 & 22, 2015 at the New Jersey Convention & Exposition Center in Edison, NJ.

President of MAD, Martha Donato told convention scene:

“The success of films and television shows based on comic book characters originates with the creators. The comic shows we produce are first and foremost produced for anyone who has an affinity for comics, animation, games – really any type of pop culture that values content and its creators. We strive to create an environment that brings together a group of people who want to celebrate a culture and a lifestyle. And most of our team who produces the shows are based in the NY/NJ area, so this is a great place for us to do a home show.”


Both of the company’s southern California shows are not only tailored celebrations of the arts, but they put an emphasis on the creators behind the stories. Their most recent show, Long Beach Comic Expo, was widely covered by independent and mainstream media for introducing the Dwayne McDuffie diversity award.

  1. Interesting…
    First, there is East Coast Comic Con, this April at the Meadowlands. Comics-centric, run by the professionals responsible for the Asbury Park Comic Con. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, even moreso at the new location!

    Then there’s the Atlantic City Boardwalk Con, to take place at the convention center in AC. That’s in May, run by an events company which also manages the booth construction and shipping for some major comics publishers. First time con, at a convention center… I hope it works!

    I hope NJCE runs shuttle buses… The local train station is a bit far, and it’s a bit of hike to the nearby hotel cluster as well.
    50 minutes from Times Square, 2 hours by two buses (nearest bus stop: 15 minute walk)
    BTW, that’s the weekend before Thanksgiving, so I won’t be able to attend.

  2. Torsten, how much would it take to hire you as my personal consultant? Your logistical and statistical expertise is simply invaluable, old boy.
