DC Heroes Do you know what Hartford, Connecticut, and Colorado Springs, Colorado, both have in common? No. These two locations haven't been used in the new Superman Vs Batman movie. Well, I don't think they have, anyway. Merely two months after the hyper successful fourth annual Rhode Island Comic Con, the events management team of Altered Reality Entertainment have announced they've partnered up with Connecticut ComiConn to assume ownership and management of the newly formed, Hartford ComiConn. Plus to make things even sweeter still, yes, you've guessed it, they've also expanded their footprint to the first ever Colorado Springs Comic Con too.

Hartford ComiConn
Hartford ComiConn is scheduled for the 24th to the 25th of September, 2016, and will be based at the XL Center in Hartford. The two-day event will include all of the same aspects that fans have come to expect from each of the shows involved in this merger, such as celebrity appearances from the big and small screen, industry-leading comic book artists, the best vendors in the market with toys and collectibles, as well as the ever-popular cosplay competitions and events.

Guest announcements and ticket prices, as well as vendor and artist alley applications, will be forthcoming in early 2016.

Colorado Springs Comic Con
The Colorado Springs Comic Con, on the other hand, is slated for the 26th to the 28th of August, 2016, and will be held at the Mortgage Solutions Financial Expo Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The first ever Colorado Springs Comic Con will feature celebrity guests from popular television and movie properties, as well as mainstream and independent comic book professionals. The three-day event will also showcase vendors of collectibles and toys, and feature a cosplay competition.

Jason David Frank, professional mixed martial artist and actor from the Power Rangers property, is the first guest to be announced. Tickets are currently on sale through the event's website, and range from $25 for adults, and $10 for kids between the ages of six and twelve. VIP passes are also available.
