We have been covering Fan Expo Dallas for a couple of weeks now even though we will not be there. Read all of our previous coverage here. Why cover a con that we can’t attend? 1) We want to attend but we just can’t make it. 2) We have been to Fan Expo Dallas before and we love this con. It’s well run and provides for a great weekend.
However, if we were going to Fan Expo Dallas we would definitely be getting quite a few autographs. First of all, we need Mar Hamill’s autograph on quite a few items. We would get a This is Us and Gilmore Girls autograph from Milo Ventimiglia. I need Alay Tudyk on my Firefly poster, while Cristina needs Jason Isaacs on a Star Wars Rebels and a Harry Potter photograph. Charisma Carpenter is one of the few Buffy stars that I haven’t met yet. We have a great Arrow poster that has a spot for Willa Holland. We definitely would get Drew Struzan to sign one of his posters. Luckily for us, we have met Stan Lee many times, but he won’t be doing many more cons so he will have long lines.
For comics, I would have to bring some New 52 Batmans for Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo to sign. I would have to choose very carefully on what Batman Rebirth’s I would want Tom King to sign. Same with Black Panther for Brian Stelfreeze. Also, we would have to choose what great run we would want Gail Simone to sign.
Of course, there will be tons of panels and other events for Fan Expo Dallas. There will be celebrity Q&As, panels about cosplays and comics, speed dating, and after parties. You can find the schedule here.
We can’t wait to see pictures and tweets about this con! We will live vicariously through these!!!
