They just announced it.

In the spirit of the Blitz, despite the tragic events of yesterday, the Boston Comic Con will take place this weekend. They state;
Boston Comic Con is happy to announce that the convention will go on this weekend as scheduled! We hope to stand as an example of the resilience of Bostonians in the wake of this horrific tragedy. The many statements of solidarity we have received from fans and guests alike have been very encouraging. We will be donating a portion of the art auction proceeds to the Red Cross for the Boston Marathon victims relief effort. In light of the heightened security in the city we ask cosplayers to not bring prop weapons this weekend.
Boston Comic Con is still happening this weekend and I’ll still be there. Come on by and say hello. #Boston

I repeat what I said yesterday: @bostoncomiccon will be the safest con in the US after yesterday’s events. To not go is ridiculous.

We will still be at @bostoncomiccon this weekend. We hope the con is a welcome distraction to recent events. We’ll see you there!
