Southern Maryland Comic-Con Announces DiMaggio and Cummings
November 5, 2013, WALDORF, MD
The Southern Maryland Comic-Con is proud to announce two very special guests. John DiMaggio and Jim Cummings will both be in attendance on Saturday, November 9, at the Capital Clubhouse in Waldorf, Maryland. These late additions were announced after Olivia Olson regrettably had to cancel her appearance due to acting commitments.
“We didn’t want our attendees to be disappointed, so we went after two of the most legendary voice actors of all time, and they were both able to make it to the show on short notice,” said Debbie Lee, Event Coordinator.
John DiMaggio is an actor, best known for voicing Bender on Futurama and Jake the Dog on Adventure Time. DiMaggio has also appeared in numerous TV shows, films, and video games. Jim Cummings is also a voice actor, best known for voicing Tigger, Winnie the Pooh, Darkwing Duck, and many other Disney roles. Cummings has voiced hundreds of characters on film, television, and video games.
Both special guests will sign one autograph per attendee at no charge. Event Promoter Ben Penrod added, “We were able to work out a special one-time-only deal with both voice actors. This is unusual for celebrity autograph signings, but we are really psyched to be able to do this for fans in Southern Maryland and the DC area.”
The Southern Maryland Comic-Con will also feature comic creator Jim Zub and his new Samurai Jack comic book, as well as an exclusive cover variant of My Little Pony #11, both published by IDW Comics. The Southern Maryland Comic-Con is produced by Awesome Conventions, which also produces the Annapolis Comic-Con in Maryland, and Awesome Con in Washington, DC.

5 Things to Know Before You Watch The Conjuring: Interactive GIFs! – Move your mouse across the GIFs to control them and read the freaky facts to prepare for the scariest movie of the year!
1) The Conjuring is directed by the acclaimed James Wan, the Australian-born director of the fright-fests Insidious and the Saw series. His Twitter handle is @CreepyPuppet. Say no more.
2) The Conjuring has been given an “R” rating by the MPAA. Not because of blood, gore, or violence, but simply because it’s just so scary from start to finish!
3) The Conjuring’s cast and crew experienced creepy events during filming. Scratches appeared out of nowhere on Vera Farmiga’s computer soon after she agreed to act in the movie, the crew were routinely woken by something in the “witching hour” between 3 and 4AM, and the real-life Carolyn Perron fell and broke her hip while visiting the set.
4) The Rhode Island farmhouse where The Conjuring is set once belonged to an accused witch, Bathsheba, who tried to sacrifice her children to the devil and killed herself in 1863.
5) Hold your applause! The Conjuring will make you terrified to clap! Whether it’s playing a traditional game of hide-and-seek by following the clapping sounds like the mother and daughter in the movie, or being terrorized by ghostly claps in different rooms of the haunted farmhouse, these claps throughout the movie will give you the creeps!
Each household is only eligible to win 1 The Conjuring Blu-ray via blog reviews and giveaways. Only one entrant per mailing address per giveaway. If you have won the same prize on another blog, you will not be eligible to win it again. Winner is subject to eligibility verification.
Captain America: The Winter Solider gets a trailer, X-Men: Days of Future Past gets a teaser, and The Confluence provides a report on the So Cal Comic Con. All that and more in the latest Scene on the Web.
