Camden Comic Con Teams Up with Rutgers Day for Super-Powered Family Fun

Camden Comic Con 2019

By Stefanie Charles

Camden Comic Con returns to Rutgers University–Camden on Saturday, April 27. For the first time in its five-year history, this family-friendly convention will coincide with Rutgers Day, an annual springtime event for New Jersey residents to explore their state university. Admission to both events is free and open to the public.

Camden Comic Con will take place 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 27.

The headlining guest at Camden Comic Con 2019 is Gerry Conway, writer of the famous Spider-Man story arc “The Night Gwen Stacy Died,” and co-creator of comic book characters including Ms. Marvel (now better known as Captain Marvel) and the Punisher. Conway will participate in a Q&A at 4 p.m. in room 110 of the Rutgers–Camden Fine Arts Building. See the full guest list.

Convention visitors can also enjoy activities like interactive programs and workshops, a cosplay contest, and tabletop gaming. Vendors and artists will have items available for purchase in an exhibit hall, and food trucks will be selling concessions on-site.
