Hopefully, the stereotype comic book geek who lives in their mother’s basement has been banished for good. Not that it was ever particularly true, but over the last decade, comic book franchises have dominated pop culture. Comic conventions are huge events that bring diverse people together, showing that just about everyone is a fan.
The basement-dwelling stereotype is especially untrue for people going to Comic Con Aloha.
This up-and-coming convention lets people grab a bit of sunshine and see their favorite voice actors and comic artists all in the same weekend! It is the perfect combination of sunshine, relaxation, and enjoying your fandom.
Say Aloha to Comics Central
From February 21, 2020, through February 23, 2020, you will have the opportunity to join the fun at Amazing Comic Con Aloha at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu. Tickets are available now with the option of a one-day pass or a full three-day admission. Do you have kids? Children 10 and under are free! What a fun way to earn parents of the year.
If you want more access and willing to pay a bit more, be sure to check out the various fan packages. It is a great way to experience Comic Con Aloha in a first-class fashion. You will enjoy wonderful access to reserved seating and addition autograph opportunities.
This year’s guests include:
- Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian – Star Wars)
- Donny Cates (writer for Absolute Carnage, Venom, Thanos)
- Jason David Frank (Green Power Ranger)
- Johnny Yong Bosch (Black Power Ranger, Trigun, Bleach)
- Adrian Paul (Highlander)
If autographs are not of interest to you, then check out the exhibitors! Grab a print from your favorite artist or check out a vendor’s stand for some rare licensed merchandise. There is a good chance you could find that special limited edition Batgirl figurine or grab a new addition to your TCG deck.
Comic Con Aloha is a dream vacation to escape from the rest of the country’s wintry grasp! There are tons of great hotels and resorts to choose from. Grab a room at one of several local hotels and enjoy the local culture, sunshine, and cuisine.
Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa
Getting a room at Hyatt Regency Waikiki Beach Resort and Spa will make you feel as if you are in your own world. With excellent dining, luxurious spas, lots of interactive activities, and more than 60 onsite boutiques, you will not want to leave the resort. Spend the weekend catching your favorite artists, snapping photos of your favorite characters lounge on the sand, and then retire for the evening to total relaxation.
Aqua Palms Waikiki
Located about a mile from the Hawaii Convention Center, Aqua Palms Waikiki is a budget-friendly accommodation if you are looking for an overnight stay. Amenities include onsite dining, wading pool, sundeck and guests have access to a barbecue grill. Another nice perk is your room includes a Macy’s shopping discount.
Ala Moana Honolulu by Mantra
Speaking of shopping… If you hope to make time for shopping, Ala Moana Honolulu by Mantra is the hotel you want to book since it is located right next to the world’s largest open-air shopping mall, Ala Moana Center. As a guest, you will have access to complimentary Wi-Fi, sauna, and swimming pool.
Comic-Con Aloha only comes once a year, and you do not want to miss your chance to join in the fun. Grab your tickets and head for the sunshine! Maybe if you are lucky, you will catch Deadpool lounging on the beach or Yoshi surfing a few waves.
