Plastic City Comic Con back at Wallace Civic Center Saturday, July 16

FITCHBURG — Comic book fans from across the region are looking forward to the return of Plastic City Comic Con for the first time since 2019.

Keith and Amy Gleason, who founded Plastic City Comic Con in 2016, feel the same way.

The 2020 and 2021 editions were canceled because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Last year’s Comic Con was scrubbed in early May, three weeks before Gov. Charlie Baker announced the dropping of most COVID restrictions across the state.

“I don’t think people were still ready at that point, though,” Keith Gleason told Fitchburg Access Television last month. “Now, we’ve been to a few shows in April and May and the crowds are big, and people want to come back. I think this time is right. I’m hoping for a big crowd.”
