Will Hesketh and Jay Cochran join the podcast this week to chat Bangor Comic and Toy Con. Will and Jay are co-owners of BCTC and have had a hell of a year with scheduling the event.
The pair talk rescheduling comic con, multiple times due to the coronavirus pandemic. Originally set for April 2020, moved to October 2020 and no had to be moved once again to April 2021.
Along with the BCTC talk, Will and Jay chat about few upcoming signings with Jason Faunt in the Bangor, Maine area. Faunt is an American actor who is best known for the role as the rich Wesley Collins in Power Rangers Time Force, as well as that of Alex, the former Red Time Force Ranger.
Bangor Comic and Toy Con will be hosting a VIP dinner with Faunt at Seasons in Bangor on Friday, October 2, limited to 25 guests. On Saturday, the Red Ranger will be at both 3D Games (11am-2pm) and Seasons Downunder Club (5-8pm). The crew finishes up their signing tour at our friend Paul Eaton‘s shop Galactic Comics and Collectibles (11am-2pm) on Sunday, October 4.
BCTC has been trying to find fun, innovative ways to bring the comic con experience to people during these crazy COVID-19 times. One of the highlights of visiting a con is meeting, hugging, handshaking, and taking a photo with celebrity guests. The current six-foot distance requirements have made that difficult.
Thanks to those at BCTC to for helping provide a distraction during these times in a safe and organized fashion.
