MONTREAL, QUEBEC, Aug 18, 2011 – When internationally recognized comic book icon Stan Lee, undoubtedly the biggest name in comics, agrees to be your guest of honor, you know you’re in for something special, even magical.

And as if THAT wasn’t enough, the Montreal Comiccon is offering a spectacular line-up of stars from the worlds of comics, science fiction, television, film, horror, bande dessinee, manga and wrestling. Science fiction, television and comic book fans will be thrilled to meet the original Dynamic Duo, the legendary Adam West and Burt Ward. Known the world over for their acclaimed portrayals of Batman and Robin in 1960s’ Batman, they will be on hand to meet and greet their loyal Montreal fans. Oh yeah, they’re also bringing with them the most beloved crime-fighting vehicles ever known, the one-and-only 1960s Batmobile! Joining the Caped Crusader and the Boy Wonder are Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s platinum-blonde punk vampire Spike, better known to us mortals as the charismatic James Marsters. Accompanying him are Mercedes McNab, the vampire villainess Harmony Kendall and Clare Kramer, the Buffy villainess supreme.
Beaming down from the Enterprise to join in on all the Comiccon fun are Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Lieutenant Worf and Commander Deanna Troi, played by Michael Dorn and Marina Sirtis, respectively. We also have, from another corner of space, and a galaxy far, far away, bounty hunter Jeremy Bulloch, otherwise known to Star Wars fans as the incomparable Boba Fett. Other goody galactic guests include Maria de Aragon, the cocky bounty hunter Greedo, and Gil Gerard and Erin Gray, who played Buck Rogers and Colonel Wilma Deering, respectively.

All good thingsâ€¦
From 1997 to 2009, the fans of Gargoyles have pulled together to celebrate the show we love so much. Our camaraderie has been a joy and an inspiration. In the twelve years since that first small convention in New York City, many of us have forged lifelong friendships, grown both personally and professionally, and taken away unique experiences from the phenomenon that is Gargoyles fandom.
But, just as a gargoyle can no more stop protecting the castle than breathing the air, eventually all good things must come to an end.
We, the fans, have all taken Gargoyles full circle. It is with bittersweet regret that the staff of The Gathering of the Gargoyles announces that this year’s convention will be the last. Thirteen conventions have made for a run lasting longer than many of us ever imagined when we gathered for the first time in 1997, and for that we should all be very proud. But do not despair, as we are most certainly going out with a bang!
We are very happy – no, we are ecstatic – to announce that joining us for our final outing will be none other than the voice of Demona herself, Marina Sirtis! She joins an all-star guest list that already includes Gargoyles voice actors Keith David (Goliath), Bill Fagerbakke (Broadway), Thom Adcox (Lexington), and Elisa Gabrielli (Obsidiana). And lest we forget, Greg Weisman, the creator of the show, will be joining us, as well, along with at least a dozen other guests from the Gargoyles writing and production team.
So please join us in our last hurrah, our shout in the night, our 13th Annual and final Gathering of the Gargoyles. This will be the one to remember. This will be your last chance to experience The Gathering before it’s all over for good. It’s not too late to grab it. Let’s make this a party to remember!
To register, visit: http://www.gatheringofthegargoyles.com/g2009/registration.html
Convention Guest Update:
As revealed above, The Gathering of the Gargoyles is delighted to announce that Marina Sirtis, voice of Demona on Gargoyles and Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Counselor Deanna Troi, will be one of our many special guests!
Newly confirmed special guests from Gargoyles and The Spectacular Spider-Man also include:
Bill Fagerbakke – Voice of Broadway (G), Patrick Star on SpongeBob Squarepants
Vanessa Marshall – Voice of Mary Jane Watson (S)
Joey Mason – Color Supervisor / Background Painter (G)
Doug Murphy – Storyboard Artist (G)
Daran Norris – Voice of J. Jonah Jameson (S)
Our complete guest list now features over 30 industry professionals, with even more to be announced in the coming weeks! As always, for complete details, please visit:
