Rhode Island Comic (RICC) hits the Rhode Island Convention Center AND Dunkin Donuts Center this November 10th, 11th, and 12th! Yup, this tiny state hosts a comic convention that has become so large, it needs two venues to contain all the excitement. Best known for its wide array of talented comic creators and artists since it’s inaugural event in 2012, RICC has also become a premier source for celebrity guests.
“We are incredibly excited and humbled by the extraordinary guest list for this year’s show. Each year, we strive to top the year before, to keep fans coming back. This year will be the biggest and best we’ve had thus far.” – Susan Soares, Press Relations Manager (Source: turnto10.com)
