TORn staffers are just back from a busy weekend at New York ComicCon, where we had a wonderful time meeting and chatting with fellow fans. It was great to see so many folks at our party on Thursday night, and we loved seeing everyone who came by our booth at the convention. Thanks to all for your support! Tolkien fans really are amazing creatures…
Alas, we didn’t learn about this amazing art until we had all left the Big Apple! Never mind King Kong or Godzilla, giant dwarves are taking over Manhattan! If you’re in New York, go check it out – at the South East corner of 24th and Park. Thanks to ringer spy Debba521 for the heads up!
Later today various staffers from TORn will be taking planes, trains and automobiles to get to the Big Apple and start setting up for New York ComicCon! From 3pm Thursday afternoon we’ll be manning our booth at the Javits Convention Center, and we hope that you will come on by and say hello!
You can visit TheOneRing.net at booth number 2947, where you can buy fabulous shirts, buttons and other goodies, plus play trivia, enter a draw for some incredible prizes or just chat with fellow fans! You can also hear us speak and speculate about the forthcoming Hobbit movies, at our panel at 9pm on Friday night.
And don’t forget, you can party with us tomorrow (Thursday) at 8pm at the Speakeasy Room!
