Terrificon showrunner Mitch Hallock spoke to us about the having to cancel this popular Connecticut based comic book show and how he believes the show could return at the end of July. He is also the showrunner of CT Gamer Con. Pretty much all the comic conventions, science fiction conventions, horror cons and fandom specific shows have all been affected by the pandemic. Fans are looking forward to the return of comic and other cons. In this series we’ll speak to representatives of many cons to talk about what we can expect in the future at these events and how they may be different.
Mitch Hallock relates how he cancelled CT GamerCon a week before if was to occur and how three days later the state of Connecticut went into lockdown. Plus, he reveals the preparations they were making to hold Terrificon in 2020 until it became apparent that it was a bad idea. We talk about ideas of how the 2021 show will be different based on the venue and other safety precautions.
Terrificon is scheduled to be held July 30th through August 1st, 2021 at the Mohegan Sun Resort Casino. CT GamerCon is scheduled for September 18th-19th, 2021 at the same location.
