Asbury Park Comic Con Moves to Seacaucus, Becomes East Coast Comic Con

Attendees will now have to drive twenty minutes to purchase cocaine and heroin.

In a great affront to Bruce Springsteen fans everywhere, Asbury Park Comic Con is changing its name to East Coast Comic Con and moving to the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ. The con has grown too large for Asbury, having already moved from the punk rock bowling alley Asbury Lanes to the historic Convention Hall for last year's con. The move is a blow not only for the city, which has been experiencing an urban renewal of sorts for the last decade, but also for attendees who appreciated the convenience of being able to purchase hardcore illicit narcotics within blocks of the convention.

"Sure, the illicit drugs I can purchase in Newark are cheaper and often of higher quality," said one congoer who is most certainly not Jude Terror from fifteen years ago, "but it's so inconvenient to have to drive all the way there and back." The congoer added that the return trip would be dangerous as well, as driving after injecting speedballs can be hazardous.

At press time, con organizers were looking into the possibility of inviting dealers to set up in booths on the con floor, which can hold twice the number of booths and tables as the previous venue.

Asked for comment, local hero Bruce Springsteen told The Outhouse, "Waaauuuggghhhh-auuuuuggghhh-auuuuggghhhhhhh!"

Here's the press release:

The Berkeley Hotel was unable to accommodate our needs and we felt it was time to move to an actual convention center. And so we’re stoked to announce that we will be moving to the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus, NJ, for April 11 & 12, 2015!!! See our new website at

The new venue is just 10 minutes from NYC, and close to NJ Transit train and bus lines. There’s a wide selection of hotels, restaurants, bars and shops all within walking distance. There’s also plenty of free parking.
East Coast Comicon will be run in the same spirit as Asbury Park Comicon and New York Comic Fest — that means great guests, engaging panels, a growing cosplay contest, and tons of prizes for trivia contests and other events.

The Meadowlands Exposition Center while hold twice as many exhibitors and artist; over 300 booths and tables.
