[ARCHIVED] Largest Ever Rob-Con Comic Book Convention set for Viking Hall

The 30th annual Rob-Con Comic Book Convention is set for Saturday and Sunday, August 1 and 2 in Viking Hall, located at 1100 Edgemont Avenue in Bristol, Tennessee. “There will be something for everyone,” said Rob-Con creator Robert Pilk. “There are a number of comic artists and writers who will be on hand to chat, sketch and mingle. Horror fans can meet actors from the hit TV show, The Walking Dead, and talk with the man who played supernatural killer Michael Myers in Halloween II.”
The hugely successful costume contest will be back again this year and will begin at 3 p.m. on Saturday. 2014’s contest featured over 100 entries. Pilk reported that the show this year will feature the largest number of vendors ever at any Tri-Cities comic con. The Scooby Doo van and the Star Wars droids will be on hand making the 2015 Rob Con the largest in Rob Con’s 30 year history.
A new feature this year will be a University of Tennessee group, Make will be using 3-D printers to manufacture action figures of attendees. “Activities are planned throughout the weekend for all age groups,” Pilk continued. Convention time for both days is from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parking is free and tickets are available at the door. Admission is $10 for one day or $15 for both days. Children under five are admitted free.
