Seems like all the news today is about all the new video game stuff coming out of E3. But that’s not a fan convention, so you won’t hear squat about it here! Hah!
I don’t know why, but I love it when people you don’t usually associate with fan conventions are at fan conventions. Which leads me to telling you that Martin Landau, who yes, was once a genre actor, but has himself a shiny Oscar, is going to be at Fan Expo Canada. So is horror actress Danielle Harris, but that’s slightly less surprising.
Albuquerque Comic Expo has added a couple of last minute guests — horror comic icon Bernie Wrightson and wacky comic sidekick extraordinaire Nicholas Brendon. And when you are signing up for your tickets, on the very same webpage, you can make a donation to the Hero Initiative as well.
One of my all-time favorite comic writers is going to be at Kids Read Comics 2011: John Ostrander.
One of my other all-time favorite comic writers is going to be at Long Beach Comic Con: Mark Waid. Also colorist Beth Sotelo, whom I don’t really know, but she’s easier on the eyes than Waid.
Manga artists Izumi Matsumoto and Fred Gallagher are the latest guests of honor announced at Anime Expo.
