BREVARD COUNTY — An exciting weekend dedicated to the love of comics, cosplay, tabletop gaming, fantasy and more is in store for guests of Space Coast Comic Con, set to return after Hurricane Dorian postponed the original fall event.
Now in its fourth year, Space Coast Comic Con is scheduled to take place Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 8-9, at the Space Coast Convention Center, 301 Tucker Lane, Cocoa.
Show hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the main floor for both days, with a pool party Saturday night and a viewing of “Bocas.”
Single day tickets cost $12, the weekend pass costs $20, and a Sunday family pass, up to five members, is available for $30.
“The hotel itself said the hurricane was going to happen, and ultimately we postponed it for the safety of our guests,” said Jake Estrada, co-host of Space Coast Comic Con. “We decided to move it to February and we hope it’s the new, permanent time of the year for Space Coast Comic Con.”
Special guests will include Gil Gerrard of “Buck Rogers” fame; Alex Saviuk, Marvel comic artist; Brian Muir, “Star Wars” sculptor who worked on the mask of “Darth Vader”; Anairis Quinones, voice actor; Athena Finger; and many more.
“I love the fact that you can go up and speak to the granddaughter of Batman [comic co-creator],” Mr. Estrada said. “She’s a great historian for that, and her story is really amazing.”
Classic cars such as the performance car of “Supernatural,” a 1967 Chevrolet Impala, and a “Millennium Falcon” car will be on display at the comic con, as well.
Vendors will have everything from Pokémon merchandise to T-shirts, comics, art and more. Famous Faces & Funnies, 9.9 Comics, The Infinite Mushroom Comic Shop and Mike’s Comics will also be featured on the main floor.
Mr. Estrada will also host a casting call for upcoming projects “Bacon,” “The Human Virus,” “The Commute,” “The Gathering,” “Bocas 2” and “The Underpresence.” Those interested are asked to bring head-shots and meet with Mr. Estrasa, Chuck Fresh and David Grace during comic con hours.
