This event request came in a while ago, and we had some slow back and forth with the liaison in regards to details and whether or not we could staff it. We were able to get a member or two out last year, and we would love to help him out again with some troopers, just keep in mind we have a DK Publishing Event already booked for the same day, so we don't want to take members from there if we don't have to, but again, if we can get a couple of guys out to this con it would be greatly appreciated. Here is the info he sent us:

As we spoke about I am running my second comic convention the NJ Comic Expo. Last year we held our first show in northern NJ that with many special guests including Joe Staton, Irwin Hasen, Guy and Ian Dorian, Jack C. Harris, Bob Wiacek, Rick Parker, Jim Salicrup, Captain Action Enterprises, MacFarlane Toys and many others. We also had on display the Batmobile, the Black Beauty, the Superbird used as a model for Disney's Cars and a landing of the original 1966 Batcopter owned and piloted by Eugene Nock. We were able to present the Batmobile and Batcopter together for only the second time in 45 years. We of course had many costumed folks on hand including some members form the 501st and we thank you!

We are holding our second show this year and it is a tribute to the 45th Anniversary of the Batman TV Series/Movie. The show will take place at the Teaneck Armory in Teaneck, NJ and the link for the show is www.njcomicexpo.com . The convention will include screenings of the Batman movie and episodes from the show at the Landmark Loews Theater in Jersey City NJ http://loewsjersey.org/ . Lee Meriwether, Terry Moore, Donna Loren, Deanna Lund, and Susan Silo are confirmed to appear and we are awaiting confirmation on other appearances of stars from the movie and show. In addition Joel Eisner author of the Batbook and Jim Beard author and editor of Gotham City 14 miles will be on hand for book signings and to share their knowledge of Batman. We will also have the original Batcopter from the movie and series landing at the show and a Batmobile replica.

Confirmed comics' guests so far include Paul Kupperburg, Irwin Hasen, Bob Wiacek and we are working on many other guests and presentations for the show.

We are hoping the 501st will be able to send some members to be at the show and we are working on booking the landspeeder and R2D2 as well. Please let me know as soon as possible if anyone can make it so we can promote this for the event as well. If you have any promotional photos please send those along as well so we can use them in our printed materials and website.

Date / Time:
November 13th, 2011

Event runs from 10a - 6pm, we would troop as available
