Sometimes life gets in the way. Of course we have our day jobs that we love doing. Then there is the matter of finances since this blog is a second job that we pay to do. Then there is time and distance.
If those things wouldn’t be an issue, we would be at Fandemic Houston this weekend.
The Fandemic Tour is a new convention group that will bring fan conventions to different cities. They have already had a show in Sacremento and by all accounts it was a great success. We except this weekend’s expo to be a great time for all as well.
The Celebrity Guests
This is an action packed con to say the least representing some of the biggest groups in fandom.
- Walking Dead guests: Norman Reedus, Jeffery Dean Morgan, Steven Yeun, Pollyanna McIntosh
- Smallville: Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum, John Schneider
- Guardians of the Galaxy: Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Sean Gunn, Chris Sullivan
Plus joining Norman Reedus is his Boondock Saints costars Searn Partick Flanery and DAvid Della Rocco. Plus, crowd favorites Jason David Frank, Dean CAin, and Bruce Campbell will appear in Houston. Plus, two of my favorite fandoms will be represented by Adam Baldwin (Firefly) and Clare Kramer (Buffy). This is a great lineup!
Comic Creators and Artists
One of the draws for us is the comic creators and artists that will be at a con.
- Phil Ortiz (The Simpson)
- Clinton Hobart (Disney)
- Tom Cook (Hanna-Barbera)
- Guy Gilchrist (Muppets)
- Rod Thorton (Founder of Angel Comics)
And there will plenty of local artists including our friend Jessica Raney. If you get a chance checkout her work Oddballs: A Collection of Short Fiction and Dreadful Pennies. Artist Alley is our favorite hangout at the end of each day, so make sure you visit!!!
Again, we wish we could make it. We do have some friends who attended, and if they have time they might do a write up. If you attened let us know how the con was on twitter!
