About Cradle-Con - A Comic, Collectible and Pop Culture Con - Spring 2022
Cradle-Con was founded in June 2018 to raise funds for the Cradle of Aviation Museum's education programs. Cradle-Con is a pure celebration of all things comic book culture. It is an opportunity for readers to meet and greet local comic book creators, for collectors on the hunt for those elusive rare books and toys, and for cosplayers to show off some of their best work. This is a spectacular yet more intimate comic con experience for fans of all ages to gather, socialize, and be passionate about what they love. Visit http://www.cradlecon.com/ for more info.

About the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo - August 2022
Long Island’s premier gaming convention began with a simple idea, “Let’s make the kind of show we’d all want to go to!” And that’s exactly what LI Retro has done by providing a welcoming environment to everyone, including guests, volunteers, and vendors. Heading into their 7th year in 2022, their “fun-first” approach has guided LI Retro from a small single-day show to a multi-day celebration of gaming with over 4300 attendees in 2018. In 2017, they expanded their reach to include tabletop gaming, and the Long Island Tabletop Gaming Expo was born. This “con-within-a-con” is included with admission and features role-playing, wargaming, board games, and CCGs for gamers of all skill levels. Find more info at http://expo.liretro.com/
