Sorry folks. Word comes down from on high.
Due to the unfortunate events that have transpired here in Boston, a lock down has been put into effect until further notice causing the Hynes Convention Center to suspend all events. As such, The Boston Comic Con will be rescheduled to a date in the not too distant future. All people who purchased advanced tickets on line will have their tickets honored at the rescheduled show. If for some reason, you can not come to the show on that date, we will refund your ticket.
Please, we ask for your patience, understanding, and cooperation. We appreciate your loyalty, and continued support for the Boston Comic Con. Unfortunately, this situation is beyond our control.
Some exhibitors are concerned, they haven't yet heard what will happen if they can't make the new date. But I'm sure that's being addressed…

I just heard Boston Comic con is officially cancelled due to the manhunt for the Boston marathon bomber.
