New Jersey Getting a Taste of Comic Con

On the heels of producing their seventh and most successful Long Beach Comic Con in California last month, MAD Event Management is proud to announce their debut on the East Coast with the New Jersey Comic Expo, the biggest event of its kind ever to hit the Garden State, Saturday, November 21st and Sunday, November 22nd, at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center in Edison, NJ.

The New Jersey Comic Expo is a family-friendly celebration of the rich culture of comic books, and is the place for comic fans, geeks, and creatives of New Jersey to come together as a community and revel in the fun and entertainment that MAD Event Management has become synonymous with. A virtual who’s who of incredible publishing companies, writers and artists will be alongside celebrity guests from the world of television and film.

New Jersey Comic Expo will also feature inviting, interactive environments for hardcore and casual fans of all ages, including Cosplay Corner for those who live breathe their favorite characters. With a full slate of programming planned, a full convention floor filled with exhibitors, as well as many surprises to come, #NJCE is poised to be a convention not to be missed ...and the best news is that you won’t get shut out of this one. In fact, kids under 10 get in for free!
