This weekend the Asbury Park Comic-Con kicks off

As we've been noting of late, the local comics scene has been blowing up—pretty much around the globe, from Dubai to Denver. And tomorrow Asbury Park gets its first comic-con, courtesy of organizer Cliff Galbriath, (left) aka frequent Beat commenter Citizen Cliff. Cliff sent along a fact sheet on the Asbury Park Comic Con and some photos of the venue, which is a cool retro bowling alley/club a few blocks from the Asbury Park Boardwalk and a bunch of fine restaurants and bars. Admission is a mere $5, with $1 going to the Hero Initiative. You can read all the deets in the PR below, but everyone we've spoken with has been psyched about going to this show; if we weren't so conned out, we might be tempted by a birthright journey back to Jersey. We're always especially charmed by seaside conventions like San Diego, MeCaf, Long Beach and now....Asbury Park.
