Howdy, Conmaniacs. Were you like me an skip the Oscars? I think I’d rather bash my foot in with a hammer before watching an entire awards ceremony. But now, what you’re really here for – NEWS!
- Dallas, home of the Cowboys, last year’s Superbowl, and the Dallas Comic Con, which just announced that it has 100% more John Romita Jr. as guests. I have never seen a man sketch a Spider-Man face faster at a con than JRJr.
- Are you a professional comics-type person? Best be heading over to the Comic Con International webpage, because professional registration is now open - for now. Seriously, nothing lasts for long in San Diego.

Hello Con Maniacs,
Well the show the handsome Ryan Robbins switched to from Gate to the Sanctuary is this one, Armegeddon Expo. (http://armageddonexpo.com/au/) This event will occur at The Dome, Sydney Showground, Olympic Park, February 26/27th 2011
Their guest list is fantastic. Makes me want to go home for a visit. By attending this event you will get a chance to meet some of the following great people.
David Hewlett – Dr Rodney McKay in StargateAtlantis. I am going share a great photo of me and my Mum with David at an event we worked together in 2006.
Christian Kane – Lindsey McDonald in Angel and Eliot Spencer in Leverage. Christian Kane has always been a scene stealer. He was one of the best foils Angel had.
Laura Vandervoort– Kara Zor-El in Smallville and Lisa in V. In other words, Laura is Supergirl…
Christopher Heyerdahl – major roles in Stargate Atlantis, Sanctuary as well as appearances in Supernatural, Twilight New Moon and Smallville.
Karen Allen – Marion Ravenwoodin Indiana Jones films. I just adore this woman. I worked with her once in the mid 1980′s on a film with Bryan Brown. Wonderful woman.
Patricia Tallman – LytaAlexander in Babylon 5. I caught up with Patricia at the Hollywood Xpo at the Universal Hilton several weeks ago. She is doing better than ever…
Rainbow Sun Francks – Rainbow co-stars in the first season of Stargate Atlantis as bad ass Lieutenant Aiden Ford. He previously hosted Canada’s MuchMusic as a VeeJay, and writes and performs in his own hip-hop group, The Oddities.
How about that amazing talent and fantastic Magician Colin Cunningham. When I worked with him, he did some magic for us that rivaled that of Criss Angel – Sometimes referred to as Canada’s ‘Gary Oldman’, this California native has played everything from the ‘straight up’ Major Davis on STARGATE SG-1, to ‘crooked’ cop Brian Curtis on DaVINCI’S INQUEST. Cunningham is currently starring on two television series. The first as John Pope in the new STEVEN SPIELBERG/DREAMWORKS produced, FALLING SKIES and again as Neil Styles on HBO Canada’s LIVING IN YOUR CAR. Cunningham also recurs as Roy Lane (the brother of Hugh Dillon’s, Ed Lane) on CBS/CTV’s FLASHPOINT.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Cunningham has been pursued by Arnold Shwarzenngegger in THE SIXTH DAY and put his life on the line for Jennifer Garner in ELEKTRA. Indie favorites include BEST IN SHOW and BREAKFAST WITH SCOT.
This next woman is the epitome of grace and style. The fantastic singer and dancer, Nana Visitor who played Kira Nerys in Star Trek Deep Space Nine. I cannot say how much I adore this talented lady.
I know you all remember Ryan Robbins who plays Henry Foss on Sanctuary. A character actor, Ryan is constantly reinventing himself; aspiring to keep each character fresh and unique. Ryan, an avid comic book fan, can be seen most recently guest starring in reoccurring roles on Blade, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate: Atlantis, Season 3 of The Collector andthe series lead in the CTV series Alice I Think. Robbins can also be seen in the independent films The Cabin Movie and When Jessie was Born (a multiple award winner) as the lead. His other credits include Supernatural, Smallville, Catwoman, Walking Tall, The Days, Kingdom Hospital and The Bug (winner of three Leo Awards). You can also see Robbins in Steven Spielberg’s Taken and the highly acclaimed Steven Spielberg mini-series Into the West.
Some special events within the expo will include:
- Voice acting workshop
- Mela Lee, Magnolia Memoir Music concert
- Live Wrestling
- Amusement rides

Hello Con Maniacs,
You know, this is so sad. A similar thing happened to Jensen Ackles a couple of years ago at a London event. Nothing like this ever happened on my watch. Better security people…Magid@raybin.com
Twilight star Bronson Pelletier is recovering after he was attacked by a group of drunken men at a fan convention in Birmingham, England.
The actor, who plays werewolf Jared in the franchise, was left with a broken nose after he was confronted in the restroom of the Hilton Metropole Hotel while attending the Eternal Twilight 4 event.
Chaos broke out as the 24 year old was hit over the skull, headbutted and held in a headlock before he managed to free himself.
Four alleged attackers, who were guests at a wedding reception in the hotel, were then chased by police officers and one was restrained after cops used a Taser gun.
A spokesman for West Midlands Police confirms four men were arrested on suspicion of assault. Two were released and two were granted bail pending further questioning, according to Britain’s Daily Telegraph.
A source tells the publication, “Bronson was really angry and upset… These guys were very nasty. They were so drunk they probably didn’t even realise they were picking on a Hollywood actor.
“The convention was full of teenage girls and geeks desperate to see their Twilight heroes so no one expected this sort of trouble.”
Woo Hoo…I feel like I have just moved into a mansion. This new site is amazing. I have so much room to move and so much space to include you my fellow Con Maniacs…
I have great things planned that will both entertain and inform. Including some contests in the very near future that will have some great prizes. So get out there and enjoy those cons and let me know what you thought and by all means send me your pics too, to Magid@raybin.com
Time to finish un-packing…
