Granite State Comicon
On the weekend of September 16th and 17th 2017 the Radisson Center of New Hampshire in Manchester, NH was home to the annual Granite State Comicon brought to you by Double Midnight Productions.
The costume groups of the New Garrison of the 501st, Alderaan Base of the Rebel Legion, Massachusettes Ghostbusters, New England Brethren of Pirates, Feature Presentation with their Stranger Things replica set, The Hero Army with their Stark Enterprises set, and the Granite State Saber Academy were all present to entertain the fans. There were numerous vendors selling goods to the fans there was something for everyone for sure. The artist alley was filled with various artists representing the numerous fandom genres. The autograph section featured Wrestling Legend Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Hook actor Dante Basco, Comic Book Men’s Ming Chen, Frozen voice actresses Eva Bella and Livvy Stubenrauch, Overwatch actresses Charlet Chung and Lucie Pohl, Troy Baker from “The Last of us”, and Walt Disney Animator Rick Farmiloe.
Overall this was a very good convention the layout was good with the Costume groups being in one section having plenty of room for all their props and the spacing in the main show floor was good with plenty of room in the aisles. During peak hours the convention didn’t feel overcrowded to me.
This was a first time for us visiting GSC. We have heard some great things about this convention and it didn’t disappoint. We look forward to seeing what this show has in store for the future.
