Next month, Middletown will once again attract comic book and pop culture fans from across the state for Galactic Con – a unique convention for those still young at heart and in love with their action figures.
An estimated 2,000 people attended last year – its first – packing the gymnasium at Everett Meredith Middle School and leaving superhero fans in Delaware hungry for more.
This time, Galactic Con will be held at a larger venue to accommodate more people – an estimated 3,000 are expected – and it has added an extra day of comic book fun.
“We’ll be at the MTown Sports Complex where there will be more space and elbow room,” Joe Manzo said. “We are also doing a two-day show to give more folks a chance to see more. And, we also plan to have shuttle service from Home Depot to alleviate any parking issues.”
The popularity of comic cons (short for “comic book conventions”) such as Galactic Con’s has to do with the nation’s seemingly endless love of folks with supernatural powers, Manzo said.
