Each week we try to highlight a few of the cons from around the country espcially ones that have people from our favorite fandoms such as Star Wars, Doctor Who, Buffy, the MCU, and DC (both TV and film). While all of these cons have great programming, we do focus on celebrity and comic creator appearances in our writeups.
Rose City Comic Con: The Oregon Convention center will be hosting this con that runs from Sept 7-9. Here are the guests from our favorite fandoms:
- DC: Brandon Routh, City Lotz
- Doctor Who: Catherine Tate, David Tennant, John Barrowman
- MCU: Chris Sullivan, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Rooker,
- Star Trek: Gates McFadden, Karl Urban, Marina Sirtis, Michael Dorn
Of course, some of these guests overlap into other fandoms (David Tennant was in The Clone Wars and John Barrowman is part of the Arrowverse). Some of the comic creators that will be there are Adam Hughes, Alex Maleev, Brian Michael Bendis, Donny Cates, Gerry Conway, Greg Rucka, Jody Houser, Kelly Sue Deconnick, and Matt Fraction. Also, this is a great con to get your new copy of Thrawn: Alliances signed by Timothy Zahn.
Wizard World Tulsa: This show will be at the Cox Business Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Guests include:
- Sons of Anarchy: Ron Pearlman, Ryan Hurst
- Lord of the Rings: Billy Boyd

There are quite a few other guests appearing such as Holly Marie Combs and Nichelle Nichols. Some comic creators of note that will be there are Mike Grell, Jim Mehsling,
Arkansas Comic Con: This con will be held at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock. Guests include Bam Margera, Paul Blake, Charles Martinet, Richard Oldfield, Sean Patrick Flanery, Tim Rose, Joe Bob Briggs, and Jason David Frank. This is the same company that puts on the Mississippi Comic Con and the Louisiana Comic Con so expect a smoothly run show!
