Be sure to track down Retired Wonder Woman at the Middletown Comic Con. Much more than cosplay, Retired Wonder Woman is a walk-around comic who brings her routine directly to the people, wisecracking with anyone and everyone who crosses her haphazard path.

Feel free to take pictures and selfies with RWW! She has appeared on America’s Got Talent, you can check out her video below!

Anthony Spay will be returning to the Middletown Comic Con as our special guest, once again. This is our 5th year hosting Galactic Con in Middletown, DE and Anthony & Tara Flynn, his wife, have been with us every year.

Anthony has created three unique and amazing prints for our comic cons over the past years, along with the art for our first badges. Just before our 2018 show, Anthony & Tara had successfully launched their own comic, “New And Improved.” You can read more about that on Bleeding Cool News.

Anthony continues to work on projects for multiple publishers, and you can find his name scattered throughout Previews catalog. Anthony’s work has also appeared on TV’s “Big Bang Theory.”

Anthony & Tara’s “New And Improved” comic can be seen featured in Stuarts comic book store.

Anthony’s art can also be found in the bounciest episode of “Big Bang Theory” when he created the art for the bouncy castle.

We are excited to have Anthony & Tara return to Middletown for 2019 and keep the streak alive. One last bit of trivia, Anthony Spay’s father, Anthony Spay, and Joe Manzo’s (Joe is co-founder of Galactic Con) father, Joe Manzo, both graduated together from South Philadelphia High School. Fortunately, neither of their fathers are super villains, or were involved in any super plot to destroy the other in high school, resulting in a family blood feud lasting generations… they may have had math class together.

Columbia Comic Con will be a smaller comic con, compared to the Baltimore Comic Con, but it will be a great event to check out in July and get warmed up for the Baltimore show!
