Middletown, NJ 07748
When: November 6, 2021
Where: Bell Works, 101 Crawfords Corner Rd, Holmdel, NJ
Why we picked Super Jersey Comic Expo:
Comic book expos are actually quite rare, especially in the garden state. Sure, New York City lays claim to the annual New York Comic Con, which is traditionally held in the fall, but Jersey doesn’t have anything remotely close to that scale. That’s why the Super Jersey Comic Expo in Holmdel is one to be excited about!
Yes, it’s the event for anyone who is into comic books, memorabilia, toys, science fiction, and collectibles. Since it’s being held at the sprawling metroburb known as Bell Works, this expo won’t be affected by the weather. While you’re there, too, you can relish on some of the fancy bites at any of the local eateries inside of Bell Works — or catch a refreshing drink from its outdoor deck bar called Bar Bella.
When: November 19, 2021 to January 2, 2021

When: December 5, 2021
Where: The Whitechapel Projects, 15 Second Ave, Long Branch NJ
