When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
- Julie Andrews, “Walk Alone”
Yes, please, don’t be afraid of the dark. Come on in – and as you enter, would you mind massaging this complimentary bottle of barbecue sauce into your skin? It’s just our little way of saying, ‘We’d like to get to know you.’”
-Anonymous NecroComicon Attendee
Voltaire’s Wicked NecroComicon is an event for those of us who sometimes prefer the world with a few extra shadows in it. It’s for people who enjoy the dark, the macabre, the strange, disturbing, and different. It’s a place for gallows humor, horror, and perhaps a few drops of madness, villainy, and some of the blacker shades of gray.
It’s also a bit of response to an unfortunate turn of events – the way, more and more, shows seem to focus on nothing but the biggest stars, and forget about the rising talents, the worthy but lesser-known whose work is amazing. but who aren’t backed by a big budget ad campaign.
It’s a show whose purpose in life is more than just “cram as many people through the door at the highest price possible” – it’s about trying to build an affordable show where each and every single attendee, regardless of who they are or where they come from, has the time of their lives. (Or the time of their deaths and undeaths, as the case may be. )
Voltaire’s Wicked NecroComicon is the brainchild of Renaissance man Aurelio Voltaire – musician, author, artist, teacher, speaker, and filmmaker - who also be at the show all weekend, performing, reading from his works, showing his short films, giving workshops, and just plain hanging around the bar, sipping a little rum – maybe a lot of rum, actually…
It’s co-created and co-produced by Jeff Mach events, creators of our sister event, The Wicked Winter Renaissance Fair - as well as The Goblin Market Live: Occultus, The Steampunk World’s Fair, and many other events.
