Fayetteville Comic Con Review

Clint NarramoreFayetteville Comic Con was this past weekend in North Carolina and they did not disappoint.  They provided a good lineup for horror fans with Tony Todd, Butch Patrick, Tom Savini, Mark Dodson and Warrington Gillette.  The 2 day event was filled with contests and opportunities to meet their favorite celebrities.  Butch Patrick of The Munsters even brought along exact Munster Car replicas of The Munster Coach and Dragula.

I am normally a little weary of Comic Cons that bring in horror stars.  There are however, 2 sides of the coin.  If the con has no horror guests, then the horror fans feel left out.  If there are lesser known horror guests to horror fans however, the horror guests go unnoticed.  That problem didn’t seem to be the case this weekend.  The fans were enthusiastic about meeting the horror stars and the stars reciprocated those feelings.  Also seen at the convention, were performers of Air Born Aerial Fitness and they performed on the stage for the fans.

All in all this show provided everything for fans of all genres.  There were great guests, some innovative Cosplay from the fans and a wide variety of vendors that provided items of both the comic and horror worlds.  Fayetteville Comic Con has seemed to get better from year to year and put on a memorable show. The one area I would like to see (let me qualify this by saying I am selfish) is the horror guest list grow as well as more photo ops with some of the larger guests.  That will come though, as the show grows.  Overall, everyone both guests and fans enjoyed themselves, making for a successful show.  To get more info on the show as a whole, visit the official Fayetteville Comic Con website at www.fayettevillecomiccon.com.
