Here are a couple of updates for Comic Cons that are in the Southeast area. We are planning on going to MegaCon and Comicpalooza. For all the cons we cover click here. The week before the cons we will do full previews all week.
A couple of additions have been made to the celebrity lists:
- Karl Urban (Star Trek)
- John Barrowman (Arrowverse, Doctor Who)
- Sean Patrick Flanery and David Della Rocco (The Boondock Saints)
- Jason David Frank (Power Rangers)
- Elizabeth Henstridge (Agents of SHIELD)
- Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica)
- Alan Tudyk (Rogue One)
They have also announced some great comic book guests: Scott Synder (All-Star Batman), Tom King (Batman), Gail Simone (Batgirl), Olivier Coipel (Unworthy Thor), Brian Stelfreeze (Black Panther), and Tony Harris (C3PO). This list is impressive and it’s not the whole list!
Like it’s sister con, Fan Expo Dallas, MegaCon will have a Rocky Horror Picture Show reunion, with Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, Meat Loaf, Patricia Quinn, and Nell Campbell.
Even if they don’t get any more celebrity guests, this will be a great con for us and our comic collection. Scott Snyder will be there but so will Greg Capullo who worked with Snyder on Batman. Tom King will be there and his artist on Sheriff of Babylon, Mitch Gerads, will be there. Greg Rucka, the current writer for Wonder Woman, will also be making an appearance at MegaCon. Gail Simone, one of the best writers in the business, or any business, will be there. Dan Slott, writer of Spiderman and one of my favorite current runs in Marvel, Silver Surfer, will be at MegaCon. So many books to get signed!
No new celebrity guests, besides wrestling star Rikishi and Jason David Frank, have been placed on their website since our last update (it’s still early). However, they have listed some artists and writers:
- Peter Gross
- Kurtis Wiebe
- Tyler Jenkins
- Ben Templesmith
- J.M. Dematteis
- Andy Schmidt
- Brent Peeples
- Jae Lee
- Camilla D’Errico
Check back next Thursday for more updates!
