Gen Con prides itself in being one of the biggest gaming conventions in the world – and the Who North America booth is offering some great merchandise.
From August 4th-7th, fans of a whole host of games will converge on Indianapolis USA for the annual Gen Con. Whether card, role-playing or strategy games, the Con is globally renown for offering a wide selection of wonderful nerd-based activities. After all, Gen Con is known for having pulled as many as 61,423 attendees and a turnstile attendance of 197,695. Attendance impressively created a six-year span of record growth. While these numbers are enormous, a few Doctor Who fans are likely to be sprinkled in there somewhere.
The Who North America booth (number #150) will be on hand at Gen Con to deliver a special Doctor Who variant cover. The variant cover in question is the Titan Comics Doctor Who: Tenth Doctor Year Two #13 Who North America variant cover by artist Paul McCall. Fans who miss the Tenth Doctor can take refuge in the ongoing comic book adventures of the Tenth Doctor. Furthermore, McCall himself will be in attendance at the Con and available to sign copies.
About Who North America
Who North America, founded in 1998, strove to bring Who memorabilia stateside. Who products in the US were a rarity at the time, and avid fan Keith Bradbury filled this void. Who North America expanded so much that even open warehouse events became custom. Not only did they build a consumer base, but they built a community also, with fans attending to meet and game together. Just this year, they announced their very own Who Merchandise Museum, which will feature products from as far back as the shows inception. Who North America is now one of the most lucrative sources for Doctor Who products in North America. Consequently, their presence at Gen Con is likely to be huge, social and very promising for attendees.
