About This Convention
Dean Cain, well known for portraying Clark Kent & Superman on the TV show “Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman” and currently appearing on Supergirl will be headlining the celebrity guest lineup at the Dec. 3 & 4, 2016 winter edition of the Northeast Comic Con & Collectibles Extravaganza at the Shriners Auditorium in Wilmington MA near Boston.

Dean and other celebrities will be attending Saturday and Sunday to meet fans, sign autographs, offer photo ops and Q&A panels. Tickets and Information is available at www.NEComicCon.Net

Immediately after graduation, Cain signed on as a free agent with the Buffalo Bills, but a knee injury during training camp ended his football career prematurely. In 1993, Cain took on his biggest role to date as Superman in the television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. At the height of its popularity, it would bring in an average of at least 15 million viewers per episode. In 1998, Cain started the Angry Dragon Entertainment production company, which produced the TBS Superstation television series Ripley’s Believe It or Not!. Cain made a return to the Superman franchise, with a special guest role in a season seven episode of Smallville as the immortal Dr. Curtis Knox, a character based upon the DC Comics villain Vandal Savage; and currently is in a recurring role of Supergirl, as the title character’s foster father, Jeremiah Danvers. Cain also appeared in the mid-season premiere of Comic Book Men, appearing at Kevin Smith‘s Secret Stash where the crew was celebrating 75 years of Superman, citing that Dean Cain helped people care about Superman again.

Billy West will be appearing to sign autographs, do photo ops and have fun with fans all weekend. Billy is best known for his voice actor work, but his career in radio and television that began in the 1980’s when he did comedic impersonations for Charles Laquidara‘s Big Mattress morning show on Boston’s WBCN FM radio network. By the mid-90s, he had moved to doing impersonations on The Howard Stern Show, giving him greater exposure. From there, West became involved with the Nickelodeon shows Doug and Ren & Stimpy. Portraying the title characters on both shows, Billy West saw his voiceover work reach an even larger, yet younger audience. This led to Warner Bros. hiring him for the film Space Jam in 1996. Featuring Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan and the cast of Looney Tunes, West voiced Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd, two characters whom he has sporadically voiced throughout the next decade. He is also very well known for his portrayal of Philip J. Fry, Zapp Branigan, Professor Fanrsworth, Zoidberg and others on Futurama, which began in 1999 and has continued on through a number of changes through 2012 and currently airs on Comedy Central. In addition he is also the voice of the iconic Red M&M.

Also appearing will be actor Sean Gunn, who starred on “Gilmore Girls,” is the body double for Rocket Racoon in “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and also appearing as Ravager Kraglin in Vol.1 and the upcoming Vol 2 GOTG, as Toby in “Super” and starring in the new James Gunn film “The Belko Experiment,” for autographs, photos and a Q&A on his career.

Candy Clark, actress in the classic “American Grafitti” and “The Man Who Fell To Earth” with David Bowie, among many other film and television roles, will also be signing autographs, offering photo ops, and a Q&A about her experiences working with David Bowie, Stephen Spielberg, George Lucas and others.

Special musical guest will be Cherie Currie, lead singer in the ground breaking all female punk rock band The Runaways, who also appeared in films including “Foxes” with Jodie Foster, an accomplished chainsaw carver, will be signing autographs, taking photos with fans, doing a Q&A panel and performing some Runaways songs at the After Party Concert Sat. Dec. 3rd in the Fez Room at the Shriners Auditorium along with The Lights Out, Charlie Farren, Tsunami of Sound and others

Other guests include Robert Bruce, Producer and Talent on “AMC’s Comic Book Men” with Kevin Smith, and well known collector and dealer of Japanese Animation and Vintage Toys, seeking characters to possibly appear on Comic Book Men. Also appearing will be Jeff Kline, Executive Producer of animated television series including “Transformers: Robots In Disguise,” “Jackie Chan Adventures,” “Dragon Tales” and “Godzilla,” currently writer and publisher at Darby Pop Comics, offering portfolio reviews, and both will educate on a panel on Careers in the Creative Arts for the Next Generation.

Some of the other pop culture guests include Gary Sohmers, known as the King of Pop Culture from his 13 seasons appearing as an appraiser on “Antiques Roadshow” and host of the talk radio program “Calling All Collectors,” Kadrolsha Ona, the Queen of the Paranormal, action figure and horror monster sculptor Lawrence Elig and Comic Book folks including Steve Lavigne (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), Joe St. Pierre (Spider-Man), Alex Simmons (Archie) and Bill Anderson (X-Men) among others.

There will be a large and diverse range of collectibles, comics, toys, nerd crafts, art, literature, records, video games and accoutrements of popular culture from music, TV and film, covering from the mid 20th century to today’s most popular and hard to get items for the nerds, geeks and fans on your holiday shopping list.

Archie Comics, the acclaimed and bestselling comic book publisher that is home to some of the best-known pop culture creations in the world, including Archie, Jughead, Betty & Veronica, Josie & The Pussycats, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, and the hit AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE series, today unveiled plans for this year’s Comic-Con International: San Diego – timed to the launch of an all-new BETTY & VERONICA #1 from comic book legend Adam Hughes.

BETTY & VERONICA #1, hitting comic book shops and digital storefronts on Wednesday, July 20 – the same day doors open on Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016 – continues the stellar ‘New Riverdale’ relaunch of the beloved Archie Comics properties that began last year with the now-historic ARCHIE #1 by writer Mark Waid and artist Fiona Staples.

 “We treat every New Riverdale launch like a special, monumental event – as these amazing characters deserve,” said Jon Goldwater, Archie Comics Publisher/CEO. “Adam Hughes is the perfect person to welcome a new BETTY & VERONICA #1 into the world with a story that’s beautifully illustrated, witty and about the most important friendship in comics. What better place to pull back the curtain on this book than Comic-Con? It’s going to be an epic show for Archie. As always, we come in strong and ready to engage with our fans and community.”

This year’s Comic-Con will also feature the first public screenings of the pilot episode of the new Archie Comics-based drama ‘Riverdale’, from Warner Brothers Productions, set to debut on The CW in early 2017. A special ‘Riverdale’ panel will take place on Saturday featuring appearances by cast members including key cast members and crew. Fans will be able to get their first look at the subversive and modern take on the Archie Comics characters.

The relaunch of BETTY & VERONICA sets the stage for an amazing week of panels, giveaways, exclusives, and announcements at the biggest pop culture event in the world, Comic-Con International: San Diego 2016 – including a convention-exclusive cover to BETTY & VERONICA #1 by Adam Hughes and a special throwback cover for the fan-favorite SONIC: MEGA DRIVE one-shot.

Archie Comics will have three must-see panels this year including a spotlight on Archie Comics Chief Creative Officer, Archie Horror writer, and ‘Riverdale’ Executive Producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, a 75th anniversary panel featuring top Archie Comics talent, and a special ‘Riverdale’ panel featuring the cast of the new live-action drama series debuting on The CW in 2017.
