ComicCon-ing: Other Con News

megacon17-header-1

MegaCon has been steadily adding guests to its lineup.  Here are the latest additions:

  • Gina Torres:  A fixture in the Whedonverse, she has had pivotal roles in Firefly and Angel. ( Which is also the two fandoms I need signatures for!)
  • Tom Wilson: We met Mr. Wilson at another con recently and he is nothing like Buff ‘Mad Dog’ Tannen in Back to the Future.  If you are looking to do a Back to the Future autograph collection (and almost everyone does cons from time to time), Mr. Wilson is a must get.
  • Jeri Ryan:  All fans of Star Trek will be lining up to get Mr. Ryan (“Seven of Nine” from Voyager).
  • Matthew Lewis:  The Harry Potter star turned heartthrob who once received a twitter request from Ms. Rowlings to put his close back on (warning: link will lead to a scantily clad Mr. Lewis), will be at MegaCon.  His line may be long mainly due to swooning from admirers.
  • Ray Park:  The martial arts expert and former Sith Lord, Ray Park will be at MegaCon.  He was also in X-Men films (the first set).
  • Spencer Wilding:  Mr. Wilding is one of the new men to suit up as the Dark Lord of the Sith, Lord Vader in Rogue One. He has also had roles in Doctor Who and  Guardians of the Galaxy.
  • Elyes Gabel:  The star of the TV series Scorpion will be in Orlando.
  • Richard Dean Anderson:  Mr. Anderson has been involved in the different Star Gate franchises and is well known for his creation of MacGyver.

ComicPalooza is coming up in May as well.  We already have our hotel booked.

  • Amy Jo Johnson:  The only Power Ranger I knew by real name before I went to cons (and that was because of Felicity).  I was just the wrong age to watch Power Rangers.
  • Steve LeiaLoaha: This iconic inker has worked for Marvel and DC. His work on Fables earned him an Eisner.
  • Rodger Bumpass: Celebrated voice actor, Roger Bumpass will be at Comicpalooza.  He has brought to life Squidward Tentacles in SpongeBob as well as doing voice work in Teen Titans.
  • Bill Fagerbakke: Joining his SquareBob co-star Mr. Bumpass, Mr. Fagerbakke will make an apperance at Comicpalooza.  He was also fan favorite Dauber on Coach, and was Marshall’s dad on How I Met Your Mother.

 

pensacon2018

Pensacon just ended, right?  That doesn’t stop the producers from adding guests for 2018!

  • Danny Tamberelli & Michael Maronna:  Pete and Pete from the hit Nickelodeon show (which I remember because Michael Stipe was a weird ice cream salesman one episode) will be at Pensacon.
  • Lita:  Pensacon always gets great wrestling talent and Hall of Famer Lita is no exception.
  • Frazer Hines: The second Doctor’s companion will be at Pensacon.
  • Paul Blake:  The man behind the bounty hunter who shot first, Greedo, will be appearing at Pensacon.
  • Lou Ferrigno:  The Incredible Hulk himself will be appearing at Pensacon.
  • Ian McElhinney: When Pensacon announced they would have a Game of Thrones character who never appeared at a US Con, we racked our brains on who it could be. I was rooting for Donald Sumpter, but Mrs. Nola Nerd Couple knew it would be Mr. McElhinney.  Not only is he one of our favorite characters on Game of Thrones, he is also General Dodonna in Rogue One.
