Anyone venturing into downtown Huntington in October may notice groups of ninja, soul reapers, and other assortments of cartoon and video game characters roaming the streets. This is because Tsubasacon has returned to the Riverfront Ballroom and Conference Center, at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena, for three days of celebrating gaming, anime, and manga.
Hosting its seventh annual convention since 2004, Tsubasacon will bring hundreds of anime and manga fans from across West Virginia, Kentucky, and Ohio and as far away as Michigan. Registration hours are from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. The event will be open from 12 p.m. to 2 a.m. on Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 a.m. on Saturday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Full day passes will be sold at the Registration Desk for $25 for Friday, $35 for Saturday, and $15 for Sunday. However, for a better value, weekend passes will be sold for $40. All passes allow for re-entry into the event. Registration is available online at www.tsubasacon.org or at the door in Huntington.
This year's roster of guests does not disappoint either. Several new guests are attending Tsubasacon include actress Jamie Marchi best known for roles in Witchblade (Masane Amaha), Soul Eater (Liz Thompson), actress Leah Clark, who was the voice of Noah in Full Metal Alchemist and Paris in Shin Chan, actor Chuck Huber known for his roles as Hiei in Yu Yu Hakosho, Android 17 in Dragonball, Jakie Cabe of Funimation known for part as Kaitou in Yu Yu Hakusho and Sabertooth in Dragonball Z, and Lord Don Kee in Dragonball GT, and actor Spike Spencer who has voiced such notable anime roles as Shinji Ikari (Evangelion series) and Dr. Shiouji (Excel Saga.)

Tsubasacon's annual visit brings in a lot of business to the downtown Huntington area. Last year over 900 patrons gathered for the three-day event, giving local restaurants and hotels a bump in revenue for the weekend. We are proud to be assisting the Huntington Area Food Bank for the 2010 Convention. The HAFB is the hub in a network of food donors and more than 290 agencies that serve hungry people in 17 counties in West Virginia, eastern Kentucky and southeastern Ohio. The HAFB provides products to member agencies that feed the needy. Here at Tsubasacon, we are proud to assist them in trying to raise funds and canned items during the course of our convention. In fact, we would encourage as many as our attendees to donate at least one or more cans of non-perishable items at the convention so we can help fulfill their mission of ending hunger in the local area. As a way of saying thanks, you will be entered in a drawing for a ton of fabulous prizes that we will be giving away during the weekend. You can also purchase tickets at the event. All monies and items raised will go to the food bank. Please help us out today
It will be like a trip to the Batcave for “Batman” fans as Burt Ward, who played “Robin” in the original television series, makes his first trip to New England Comic Con, October 15-17 at the Hynes Convention Center in Boston. Ward joins Adam West (Batman) as New England Comic Con guests from the popular program, which ran from 1966-68 and has lived on for decades in syndication.
Though an avid comic fan growing up, Ward had somehow never read an issue of Batman when he first auditioned for the role of Robin. Quickly impressing the producers, Ward was cast as Robin alongside Adam West’s Batman for an unforgettable three season run that lasted 120 episodes.
The legacy of Batman has stayed with Ward throughout his career. He has reunited with West numerous times to reprise his role as Robin, and has also written an autobiography about his Batman experiences called Boy Wonder: My Life in Tights, signed copies of which will be available at New England Con.
Outside of Batman, Ward has appeared in Moving Targets, Homeboys In Outer Space, Alien Force, The Dwelling, Smoothtalker And Kill Crazy.
In recent years, Ward has founded a charitable organization called Gentle Giants Rescue and Adoptions, Inc, which rescues giant breed dogs like Great Danes and some smaller breed dogs. He also runs Logical Figments, a special effects contractor that provides graphics and animation for commercials and occasional feature films including Bulletproof Monk.
New England Comic Con runs from October 15-17, 2010 at the Hynes Convention Center. Join tens of thousands of fans as they converge in Boston at the New England Comic Con 2010 Wizard World Convention to celebrate the best in pop culture. New England Comic Con brings it all - Movies, Comics, Toys, Video Gaming, Games, TV, Anime, Manga, Horror, Wrestling, MMA, Original Art, Collectibles & More! New England Comic Con is brought to you by the group who produces the most widely attended Comic Con tour!

In the years since its inception, the board has created an award to recognize those individuals in the industry that have dedicated their talent over the lifetime of their careers to the comic book community at-large, achieving the status of Hero. Previous recipients include John Romita, Joe Kubert, Nick Cardy, Neal Adams, and George Perez. Who will be this year's lifetime Hero?

For the past few years, Klaus and Howard have been conducting an Artist's Workshop for Marvel, offering invaluable insights, gleaned from those decades of experience, on narrative, storytelling, page design, and career management.
They've developed a fluid and comprehensive take on the inside game played by successful cartoonists - and a series of direct and vital techniques intended to drag newer talents out of a hobby and into a profession - without ever losing the joy all of us experience when we ply our craft.
Klaus and Howard have taken their seminar on the road to the renowned Savannah College of Art & Design, to great acclaim from students and faculty alike, and now they're bringing a customized version of the workshop to the 2010 Baltimore Comic-Con. On Saturday, August 28th, from 1pm to 4pm, Messrs. Janson and Chaykin will entertain and enlighten with a lively, spirited, and very likely prickly and opinionated dissertation, followed, from 4 PM to 5 PM, by an hour of honest dissection of the work of several lucky attendees. All class registrants will be eligible for the dissection lottery, so bring some of your work if you want to hear from these two very honest men!
To register for this very special class, please call our host store, Cards, Comics, & Collectibles @ 410-526-7410. The cost for this professional seminar is $75. Major credit cards will be accepted for payment. The hour of honest dissection from 4pm-5pm will be exciting programming available to all ticketed attendees of the Baltimore Comic-Con. Register now while space is still available!
