Oregon Coast Comic Con Brings Star Wars, Ninja Turtles, Walking Dead to Tillamook

(Tillamook, Oregon) – Get ready for the Oregon coast's only real foray into gleeful nerddom. The Second Oregon Coast Comic Com is the sequel to last year's NW Comic Con, held in Tillamook. March 24 and 25 sees the return of the festival of fun and fantasy to the Tillamook Air Museum, inside the largest, free span wooden structure in the world, surrounded by historical planes, trains and automobiles.

More than just comic books are featured here. You'll find artists, actors, stuntmen, cosplay groups and food vendors, including a healthy dose of those from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies, The Walking Dead, Stargate, True Blood and the show Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.

Look for over 75 vendor and exhibitor spaces.
