Rarest Spidey-suit in the world coming to NH for Nashua Library Comicfest
NASHUA — Attention Spider-Man fans! The rarest Spider-Man costume in the world is coming to the Granite State, so don't miss your chance to see a piece of comic book history up close and in person.
The rare Spidey-suit belonging to legendary comic book creator and writer Roy Thomas will be on display at the Nashua Library ComicFest on July 22.
Roy’s friend and agent John Cimino will give a talk about the suit, which is the first Spider-man costume ever made by Marvel Comics and was once believed to have been lost to the ages. He will recount Roy’s history wearing the suit in the pages of the Marvel comics in the 1960s, at the Stan Lee Carnegie Hall show in 1972, up through the last time he wore it in public.
After his talk, Cimino will be exhibiting the costume until 4:30 p.m.
Something for every fandom will be happening at ComicFest, which runs from 10 a.m.-7 p.m.
Other activities include Minecraft games and board games, along with a video game tournament.
New to the event this year is a Cosplay Dating Game and two "escape rooms." There will also be a cosplay contest, with plenty of prizes for both experienced and novice cosplayers.
There will be activities for families in the library’s Children’s Room, and the library’s Image Gallery and Plaza will be filled with artists displaying and selling their comics, drawings, crafts, jewelry and more.
All the day’s events are free and open to the public, and you can visit www.nashualibrary.org/comicfest for more information.
