Boston Lockdown Postpones Boston's Comic Con
Unless you were under a rock last weekend, you know that the Boston Marathon was targeted by a lethal bombing by two men from Chechnya, southern Russia. The attack left over a hundred people hurt, and three people dead.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was shot and killed during a battle with police last week, leaving his brother Dzhokhar, 19, at large until Friday night.
Boston was shut down as police began what would turn into a city-wide manhunt for the younger brother, leaving many who had driven from all around the country to attend Boston's Comic Con in the cold.
BCC reached out to Facebook fans today, stating in a status that they will not only be rescheduling the show, but that any ticket purchased online will be honored for the future date, which has yet to be set. Refunds will also be available to those who cannot make the rescheduled event.
Several artists and attendees took the show on the road, so to speak, settling down in other locations in order to meet with fans and guests who had traveled to see them.
...many of our guest artists are doing signings at Larry's Comics in Lowell, Friendly Neighborhood Comics! in Bellingham, Studios at Porter Mill in Beverly, Comicopia in Kenmore Sq, and Comicazi in Davis Sq., on Saturday April 20th! Please come out to support them, they're here to support you!
Well done and fabulously handled, if I do say so myself! The rescheduled date will be announced soon, though appears to be tentatively set for sometime this summer.
