• Eternal Con Launches in Long Island, New York

      Long Island, NY is finally getting its own Comic Con. Frank Patz and EternalCollector.com have announced the first “Eternal Con” will be held Saturday, June 15th 2013 at the Cradle of Aviation Museum (on Museum Row along Charles Lindberg Boulevard) in Garden City, New York.

      The debut show will feature top name guests, new and vintage toys, comics, collectibles, autographs for sale, a costume contest, an artist alley, and a special “Salute to G.I. Joe” including an awesome display of historic action figures as well as a viewing of a GI Joe fan film called “Operation Red Retrieval” at 4pm on the Cradle of Aviation’s IMAX screen.

      Also for the first time in New York, one of the largest personal collections of Original 1960s and 1970s “Planet of the Apes” costumes and props will be on display for all participants to see. “This stuff is amazing to look at,” said Patz. “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to be able to view Movie and TV screen used costumes like this up close, when they are usually hidden away in someone’s personal collection.”

      Guests signed up include, legendary G.I. Joe A Real American Hero writer and artist Larry Hama, former Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter, Superstar Artist Arthur Suydam (The Walking Dead, Marvel Zombies) comic book artists Billy Tucci (Shi, Sgt. Rock), Sean Chen (Iron Man, Wolverine, X-men), Nelson Decastro (Venom, Superman), and Illustrator John Cebollero. Also appearing will be Star of the classic movie “The Last Dragon”, Taimak, WWE Diva Ashley Massaro, WWE and ECW wrestler Tommy Dreamer. Members of the official Star Wars costume troupe, “the 501st Legion, GI Joe Costume group “The Finest” and the Long Island Ghostbusters.

      More guests will be announced in the weeks to come on www.eternalcon.com .

      Events throughout the day range from a Car Show in the museum parking lot, (including the iconic 1966 Batmobile as well as vehicles from Movies, Television and the US Military) a costume contest, face painting and dog tags for children and all attendees also have the opportunity to win free prizes in hourly raffles.

      Attendees will have access to the entire spectacular Cradle of Aviation Museum, with stunning displays of the history of Aviation.

      “For too long, Long Island has lacked the excitement of a true Pop Culture event that only a Comic-Con can bring,” said Patz. “ETERNAL CON will feature an incredible selection of collectibles, posters, comic books, autographs, toys, and other Pop Culture. When you have incredible collections exhibited next to vendors you get fantastic synergy – that’s what made EternalCollector.com such a hit when we launched – and that’s what will make ETERNAL CON a great show for vendors, the public, and collectors.”

      Cradle of Aviation Museum, which includes ETERNAL CON, is $14.00 for Adults and $12.00 for children (2-12), seniors, volunteer firefighters, and military personnel. All fees collected from this event benefit the museum. ETERNAL CON runs from 10am to 5pm. Sponsorships are available.

      Those have always been overpriced, IMHO. Sad, really. But they are quality cards, so I guess you pay what you get for.

      They sure like that 3-2 score; every one of the Pens' three wins so far ended that way, after tonight's Cup Final rematch against the Sharks.
