2017 Las Cruces Comic Con this Weekend!

It’s time to dust off that superhero cape, find the nearest phone booth, and head on down to the Las Cruces Convention Center (680 E University Avenue) for the 2017 Las Cruces Comic Con.  A fraction of the many guests include actors Gary Busey and Ann Mahoney (The Walking Dead); writers Meredith Finch (Wonder Woman comics), Ming Chen and Ben Jones; and comic artists David Finch (X-Men, Avengers comics) and Jaime Carillo. Several cosplayers will also be at the event including Christina Dark, Missy Mayhem, the EP Ghostbusters, and Star Wars groups 501 and Vhe’Rang Clan.
There will be a costume contest on Saturday night in a variety of categories, with cash prizes awarded.  The event will also feature Magic: The Gathering card game tournaments, Dungeons and Dragons, and other tabletop gaming sessions. Computer gaming demos will be available for the hottest new releases.  The Society for Creative Anachronism will also be on-hand to provide live fighting demos.
The giant event runs for three days (August 25-27, 2017), so make sure to check the event schedule for games, classes, cosplay, autograph sessions, shopping, and much more. See the website for more information or to buy advance sales tickets (also available at the door)  http://lascrucescomiccon.org/
