Planet Comicon 2016 Welcomes Stan Lee

0000000-slee-PCKC16-sq

Press Release:

Stan Lee, the guy who created and co-created hundreds of iconic superheroes, including Spider-Man, Iron Man, Incredible Hulk, and Thor, is coming to Planet Comicon Kansas City at Bartle Hall May 20, 21 and 22. The legendary former publisher of Marvel Comics is scheduled to sign autographs, pose with fans for photo opportunities, and appear on stage for a Q&A session.

“Every year the show gets better,” said Planet Comicon Kansas City founder and CEO Christopher Jackson. “We are incredibly excited and truly honored to have Stan Lee coming to Kansas City. He is a visionary who has brought a whole pantheon of modern mythology to life. The incredible imagination of Stan Lee fills our theaters, toy stores, and television screens.”

Planet Comicon Kansas City has exploded in popularity and attendance since moving to the monster space at Bartle Hall in 2012. The annual show draws legions of fans of superheroes, science fiction, animation, television, movies, fantasy, and gaming, with acres of interactive exhibits, live art, costumes, performances and collectibles.

Other celebrity guests already announced for Planet Comicon in 2016 include Edward James Olmos (Battlestar Galactica, Miami Vice), Eve Myles (Doctor Who, Torchwood), Sean Maher (Firefly), and Jason Mewes (Clerks, Mallrats). Other comic creator guests include Bill Sienkiewicz (Elektra: Assassin), Jason Aaron (Star Wars, Thor), Joe Staton (Green Lantern, Dick Tracy), Cullen Bunn (Uncanny X-Men, The Sixth Gun), Brian Hurtt (The Sixth Gun, Queen & Country), Matt Kindt (Rai, Ninjak), Don Rosa (Uncle Scrooge), Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/TMNT), Dennis Hopeless (Spider-Woman), Phil Hester (Green Arrow, The Flash: Season Zero), Rick Burchett (Lady Sabre, Batman Adventures), and more!

Enter to Win a Stan Lee V.I.P. Package“We will continue to announce celebrity guests over the next few months,” Jackson said. “The final roster will include more than 25 celebrities who will be available to meet with their fans. Planet Comicon is designed for every fan in the family. We work for a great balance of comic book creators, celebrity guests, cosplay events, vendors, gaming, children’s activities, performances, and panel programming. That’s what has kept our event growing year after year.”

Last year’s Planet Comicon Kansas City drew a record-setting 54,000 fans to Bartle Hall, but Jackson expects the 2016 show to be the biggest yet.

Jackson noted that, “For the past two years, Planet Comicon has been on the same weekend as the Big 12 basketball tournament, which strained the limits of hotel rooms, parking, and other downtown accommodations. Our event has now moved to May, and we expect that to allow us to grow our show and improve the experience for fans even more.”

Tickets for Planet Comicon Kansas City will be available at the door. In addition, advance memberships that include admission to the event can be purchased at the Planet Comicon Kansas City website, www.planetcomicon.com. A limited number of Stan Lee autograph and photo packages will be available and can be pre-purchased on the website.

“This will be Mr. Lee’s first such appearance in Kansas City and we are extremely excited to welcome him as our guest of honor at Planet Comicon,” Jackson said. “We expect the Stan Lee packages to sell out in advance of the show, so fans who want to meet him should book their packages well ahead of time.”

Lee has appeared in more than 30 movies, including cameos in nearly every Marvel movie. He was recently named the most successful filmmaker of all time, as his legendary creations have grossed $15 billion worldwide.

FOUNDED IN 1999, PLANET COMICON KANSAS CITY is Kansas City’s largest and longest-running comic book convention and pop culture expo, featuring the best in comic books, fantasy, science fiction television and movies. Past Planet Comicon guests have included William Shatner, Stephen Amell, Lou Ferrigno, Adam West, Kenny Baker, Cary Elwes, Karen Gillan and many more. Memberships that include admission can be purchased on the event website, www.planetcomicon.com. Tickets will also be available at the door.

About the book:

In this gorgeously illustrated, full-color graphic memoir, Stan Lee—comic book legend and co-creator of Spider-Man, the X-Men, the Avengers, the Incredible Hulk, Daredevil, and a legion of other Marvel superheroes—shares his iconic legacy and the story of how modern comics came to be.

Stan Lee is a man who needs no introduction. The most legendary name in the history of comic books, he has been the leading creative force behind Marvel Comics, and has brought to life—and into the mainstream—some of the world’s best-known heroes and most infamous villains throughout his career. His stories—filled with superheroes struggling with personal hang-ups and bad guys who possessed previously unseen psychological complexity—added wit and subtlety to a field previously locked into flat portrayals of good vs. evil. Lee put the human in superhuman and in doing so, created a new mythology for the twentieth century.

In this beautifully illustrated graphic memoir—illustrated by celebrated artist Colleen Doran—Lee tells the story of his life with the same inimitable wit, energy, and offbeat spirit that he brought to the world of comics. Moving from his impoverished childhood in Manhattan to his early days writing comics, through his military training films during World War II and the rise of the Marvel empire in the 1960s to the current resurgence in movies, Amazing Fantastic Incredible documents the life of a man and the legacy of an industry and career.

Roy Thomas Guest of Honor for Connecticut ComiCONN 2015

Roy Thomas

Press Release:

Connecticut ComiCONN is thrilled to announce that our 2015 “Guest of Honor” is the one and only, legendary comic creator – ROY THOMAS
Roy Thomas was the FIRST Editor-in-Chief at Marvel after Stan Lee stepped down from the position. Roy is a longtime comic book writer and editor. Thomas has written comics for Archie, Charlton, DC, Heroic Publishing, Marvel, and Topps over the years. Thomas currently edits the fanzine Alter Ego for Twomorrows Publishing. He was Editor for Marvel comics from 1972-1974. He wrote for several titles at Marvel, such as Avengers, Thor, Invaders, Fantastic Four, X-Men, and notably Conan the Barbarian.
It was also Roy Thomas who recognized the writings of one Dennis “Denny” O’ Neil (who would one day become Editor for DC/creator of Arkham Asylum/ Ra’s al Ghul/John Stewart) from a newspaper article Thomas had read. Roy reached out to O’ Neil and got him to pencil a script-test for The Fantastic Four. Shortly after Thomas showed the script to Stan Lee, who promptly hired O’Neil.
Roy helped create dozens of hugely popular characters including the following:
3-D Man, All Star Squadron, Banshee, Brother VooDoo, Conan, Doc Samson, Ghost Rider, Hyperion, Iron Fist, Living Monolith, Morbius, Ms. Marvel, Nova, Red Sonja, Spitfire, Sunfire, Tiger Shark, Ultron, Union Jack and The Vision are just a small sampling of the popular characters Roy added to both the DC and Marvel universes.
Fans who line up to see the latest Marvel Studios Avengers film, “The Age of Ultron” can thank Roy for creating two of the major characters in this big screen spectacular – the mysterious Vision and the diabolical Ultron!
So please join us as we welcome “Rascally” Roy Thomas as he makes a rare con appearance on Friday and Saturday only at our 6th annual Connecticut ComiCONN at the fabulous Mohegan Sun Convention Center on August 14 –16th, 2015 in Uncasville, CT.
