In celebration of Boston Comic Con, the leaders of the Comicbook Artists Guild announced this week that they are hosting a Meet & Greet for the popular New England conventionâ€™s exhibitors and attendees. The gathering, which is co-sponsored by Boston Comic Con and Bedrock Comics, is scheduled for Saturday October 24th at 6pm. Clerys Bar & Restaurant will serve as venue for the event.
Hosting their first official event in the Boston metro area, the Guild has planned this event to provide creators and other exhibitors an opportunity to network and mingle outside the hustle and bustle of a busy convention. Attendees of the Meet & Greet will enjoy a free appetizer buffet and a cash bar. The Guild will also be raffling off some special prizes to attendees, including a complimentary one year membership to the Guild.Â Existing members will be on hand to share their experiences being in CAG and to answer questions.
