This event sounds really geeky ... and you know we love geeky stuff 'round here. Check it out:

HOLLYWOOD MONSTER MEN COMING TO NORTH CAROLINA OCTOBER 4-5!

Start celebrating Halloween on October 4th and 5th by meeting and getting autographs from actors that have portrayed two of Hollywood’s most famous horror movie icons, Friday The 13th’s Jason Voorhees and Halloween’s Michael Myers.  Actors, Ken Kirzinger and Brad Loree will be special guests at this year’s Comics & Toys MonsterCon in Concord, NC.   (www.comicmonstore.com)

The Comics & Toys MonsterCon is a 2-day, multi-fandom convention for fans of superheroes, science-fiction, horror, fantasy, games, anime, and performing arts.   The event will take place at the Cabarrus Arena and Events Center (www.cabarrusarena.com).

On Saturday & Sunday, you will find a wide variety of merchandise from dealers coming from all over the East Coast & beyond.  In addition, you'll be able to meet celebrities, comic book creators, novelists, movie makers and several other special guests.  There will also be plenty of entertainment including gaming, discussion panels, stand-up comedy, trivia contests, costume contests, and much more.  On Saturday night, you'll find plenty of music and merriment at the convention after party and concert.  The Graveyard Boulevard, The Tremors, Psycho Charger and a few other bands will thrill convention goers with their skele-tunes.  Single Cell Productions will also be providing their own style of madness and mayhem.

Costumes are encouraged at the most anticipated "Supernatural, Sci-Fi, Superhero Show" on the East Coast.

Tickets can be purchased in advance through the official Comics & Toys MonsterCon website, www.comicmonstore.com/convention, or at the door.  Daily tickets or two day passes are available.
