Cyndi Lauper may have merged rock & roll and wrestling in 1984, when she snagged the WWF's Captain Lou Albano to co-star in her MTV video “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” but self-described e-commerce trendsetter Animation-ink.com has forged the forces of rock & roll and comic books into an unprecedented alliance of ultimate geekery for Rock'n Comic Con 2010. Never mind the dealers, panels and artists alley (de rigueur for sci-fi/fantasy fans), nor the after-hours parties (for whom, exactly?). This con rocks out with its coccyx out when pelvis-pulsing '80s acts like Dramarama, A Flock of Seagulls, and When in Rome take to the stage to perform their greatest hit. Stan Lee (pictured) is likely to be wandering around, too. Excelsior!
