Wellsboro, PA. The annual Wellsboro Comic Con has announced that the 2024 event, taking place Saturday, August 10th, will now be free and open to the public throughout all venues. These venues are the Deane Center for the Performing Arts, The Warehouse Theatre, The Deane Center Lawn, and Central Ave between Main Street and Water Street.
Julian Stam, owner of Pop’s Culture Shoppe and founder of the Wellsboro Comic Con, explained the elimination of ticket sales, saying, “We’re really proud to be able to promote the arts and creativity through comic writing, art, and design, and now in a way that is accessible to everyone. Being able to make this a free event that continues to draw world-class creators is a strong testament to our town and the many people who have helped build the Wellsboro Comic Con since year one.”
Along with several creators returning from past years, new creators joining the show this year include Stephanie Williams, whose writing credits include “Wakanda #1,” “Nubia and the Amazons,” “Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur: Wreck and Roll,” and many more Marvel, DC, and independent projects, as well as Zadra, a seasoned Cosplayer who has appeared at Katsucon, MAGfest, Replay FX, Setsucon, Geekout-HCA, and more. The vendor scavenger hunt will also be returning, along with the highly-anticipated cosplay contest, with prizes provided by Pop’s Culture Shoppe and Comic Con guests.
Attendees looking for additional entertainment throughout the weekend can enjoy Hamilton-Gibson’s production of “Puffs, or Seven Increasingly Eventful Years at a Certain School of Magic and Magic,” which will be performed in the Warehouse Theatre at 12pm and 7:30pm on the day of the convention, as well as Friday August 9th at 7:30pm and Sunday August 11th at 2:00pm.
