By Shawn Perry

ab5db3fb5a1f2a6a41dbf59cca95d051With another record-breaking Connecticut Comiconn in the books the self-proclaimed 'Johnny Appleseed of Comics Books in Connecticut' Mitch Hallock recently announced that he will be producing the first-annual TerrifCon next August at Mohegan Sun. As discussed in the video below, and in past coverage on this site, Hallock is one of the biggest supporters of geek culture in the state of Connecticut and has been for some time…

In addition to producing great events himself, Hallock supports the comic book community all year long by supporting local shops and businesses as well as appearing at regional events like Connecticonn and Hartford Comic-Con.
