Stan Lee Returns to Silicon Valley Comic Con 2018

The man, the myth, the legend. Making his grand return to Silicon Valley Comic Con we are very excited to announce our first guest… STAN LEE!

Stan Lee is an American comic-book writer, editor, and publisher, who was formerly executive vice president and publisher of Marvel Comics.

Lee co-created Spider-Man, the Avengers, Black Panther,  the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, the Fantastic Four, Thor, the X-Men, and many other fictional characters, introducing a thoroughly shared universe into superhero comic books. In addition, he challenged the comics’ industry’s censorship organization, the Comics Code Authority, indirectly leading to it updating its policies. Lee subsequently led the expansion of Marvel Comics from a small division of a publishing house to a large multimedia corporation.

He has had cameo appearances in many Marvel film and television projects. A few of these appearances are self-aware and sometimes reference Lee’s involvement in the creation of certain characters.

On 16 July 2017, Lee was named a Disney Legend, a hall of fame program that recognizes individuals who have made an extraordinary and integral contribution to The Walt Disney Company.

Other guests for the 2018 convention include: Sean Astin, Jewel Staite, Matthew Lewis, Jim Shooter, Simon Bisley, Coop, Glenn Fabry, Andy Weir

RSVP on Facebook!

Montreal Comiccon 2017 Hosts David Tennant, Nathan Fillion & Many More

Press Release:

Montreal Comiccon is a pop-culture fan convention that showcases artists and products from entertainment genres like: Sci-fi, Horror, Anime, Gaming in all its forms, and, of course, bande dessinée and comic books. It features a large array of exhibits with several companies demonstrating their wares and a few vehicles or set pieces from film or television are on display, a shopping experience like no other, aimed at fans that are looking for games, T-Shirts, comics, toys, statues, DVDs/Blu-rays, replicas and more collector items.

Fans have the opportunity come to meet their favorite creators from the world of comics and BD, get their autographs, buy a sketch or thank them for their work. Additionally, one of the biggest draws, fans get to meet the personalities behind their favorite TV shows and movies. Celebrities participate in autograph sessions, photo opportunities and Q&As that accommodate between 700 and 3000 fans.

Fans are encouraged (but not obliged) to come dressed as their favorite pop culture characters, be they from movies, TV, video games or comics. It culminates at the Masquerade, the big costuming competition that brings in judges from across the globe, over 60 competitors, and close to 3000 fans to cheer them on when they hit the big stage.

Over the course of three days, fans are treated to over 100 different panel discussions and workshops that help further promote comics, costuming, gaming and pop culture in general. A gaming zone for fans to discover new game demos, participate in tourneys or simply enjoy some free-play. Video games are feature for both indie games and AAA studios with demos and eSports tournaments. Screenings for short and feature films are presented that include fans films, as well as independent and studio productions.

Montreal Comiccon is proud to announce a strong starter line-up focused on fans favourite franchises.

Nathan Fillion is best known to Firefly enthusiast as Captain Malcolm Reynolds, a role he reprised in the 2005 film Serenity – though most recently was the star of the hit series Castle.

David Tennant is loved by legions of fans for his role as the 10th Doctor on the international hit series Doctor Who. Since then, he’s had a successful run starring on several dramas including the BBC series Broadchurch and Netflix’s Jessica Jones.

John Rhys-Davies has had a long and varied career, starring in several TV series like Sliders and the The Shannara Chronicles, though best known for his roles as Sallah in Raiders of the Lost Ark, and, of course, Gimli, in the Lord of the Rings trilogy of films. The Harry Potter franchise has risen to the top as one of the most impactful, and we have none other than the actor who portrayed evil wizard Lucius Malfoy, Jason Isaacs, who was just announced as one of the leads on the upcoming Star Trek: Discovery.  Comiccon will also be celebrating 20 years of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with the presence of James Marsters, who played the sometimes good, mostly evil vampire, Spike. As ever, Star Wars remains one of the most adored franchise, and we’ll be bringing in the galaxy’s most infamous bounty hunter, Boba Fett, as played by actor Jeremy Bulloch.

For twenty five years, Kevin Conroy has been considered the definitive voice of Batman, starting with Batman: The Animated Series. Beyond the 85-episode run, he has been the voice of Bruce Wayne in multiple TV series, animated films, and video games, including the acclaimed video game Batman: Arkham Asylum, and will return as the Dark Knight in Injustice 2, slated for release in May 2017.

Video Games continue to dominate the entertainment market and one of the bestselling for 2016 was Ubisoft’s own Watch Dogs 2. For this year’s event, Comiccon will focus on the talented group of motion capture actors, who bring the game’s DedSec team of hackers to life:  Tasya Teles (Sitara), Shawn Baichoo (Wrench), and Jonathan Dubsky (Josh), Christopher Jacot (Dusan), John Tench (T-Bone) and Ruffin Prentiss (Marcus).

From comic books to cartoons, toys, and blockbuster films, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been a mainstay for over 30 years. We are very thrilled to welcome the co-creator of TMNT, Kevin Eastman, whom, to this day, continues to write and draw for the IDW series. Joining him will be the creator of American Flagg, Howard Chaykin, whom also has the distinction of being the very first artist on the Marvel Comics 1977 Star Wars. In addition, fans can look forward to meeting Glenn Fabry, the painter and illustrator known for his covers on Preacher, 2000 A.D., and, most recently American Gods; Marguerite Sauvage, the artist on the breakthrough Valiant comic series Faith, and also created the Montreal Comiccon 2017 poster art; plus Julien Paré-Sorel, the artist on the anxiously-awaited comic series Dans une galaxie près de chez vous, which is written by the original show creators Pierre-Yves Bernard et Claude Legault and expected to release in 2018.

Fans of costume building are in for a special treat with some of the most popular professional cosplayers. These include Italian cosplayer Leon Chiro and one of the hosts of the new TV series Cosplay Melee, LeeAnna Vamp. They’ll be there to meet fans and offer tips and tricks at their costume panels. As ever, the Masquerade costume contest will be taking place on Saturday, July 8, where amateur costume makers take to the Comiccon stage to compete in front of industry judges.

Wizard World Anaheim 2010!

On April 16-18, 2010, while C2E2 was going on in Chicago, Gareb Shamus brought his Wizard World show to Anaheim. While I was a bit skeptical at the number of people who would attend this event due to the overwhelming talent going to C2E2, I was genuinely surprised at how well run the show was. There was something for everyone at this show, from shopping, to seeing the myriad of celebrities attending the event, to Artist Alley, where art collectors were able to snag some great art at very affordable prices. Everyone was very approachable, and even the celebrities had a good time, most taking in and enjoying their first comic convention. With the success of this show, I can only hope that Wizard World Anaheim can come by next year to hopefully bring more talent to this great show! Here’s a look at some of the highlights from this show:

Attendee line for the event.

Crowds anxiously lining up on Saturday to see the stars!

People already shopping around as soon as I got on the show floor on Friday afternoon.

Magic!

Do you feel lucky?

Go ahead... make my day!
