About Scrappy Little Nobody
“I’m excited to publish my first book, and because I get uncomfortable when people have high expectations, I’d like to use this opportunity to showcase my ineptitude, pettiness, and the frequency with which I embarrass myself. And while many of my female inspirations who have become authors are incredibly well-educated and accomplished comedy writers, I’m very, very funny on Twitter, according to Buzzfeed and my mom, so I feel like this is a great idea. Quick question: are run-on sentences still frowned upon? Wait, is ending a sentence with a preposition still frowned upon? I mean, upon frowned? Dammit!” —Anna Kendrick
Anna Kendrick’s autobiographical collection of essays amusingly recounts memorable moments throughout her life, from her middle class upbringing in New England to the blockbuster movies that have made her one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses today. Expanding upon the witty and ironic dispatches for which she is known, Anna Kendrick’s essays offer her one-of-a-kind commentary on the absurdities she’s experienced on her way to and from the heart of pop culture.

Actor Daniel Cudmore (X-Men, Twilight) appears at Big Wow! ComicFest on Saturday April 18th!
Born in Vancouver and raised in Squamish, British Columbia, Daniel grew up in an athletic household. Daniel’s breakout role came shortly after he made the transition from college star to actor, when Bryan Singer cast him alongside Patrick Stewart, Hugh Jackman, Sir Ian Mckellen, and Halle Berry in the 2003 superhero film X2, as Colossus, the strongest member of the X-Men team. Daniel’s character was brought back in the film’s sequel X-Men: The Last Stand. He has since showcased his extraordinary talents on numerous television shows including “Stargate SG-1,” “Supernatural,” and “Psych.” However, it is Daniel’s role as Felix in the popular Summit Entertainment film franchise The Twilight Saga that has given this actor international recognition.
Guests include: Brent Anderson, Sanya Anwar, Stephen Bissette, Mark Bode, Nick Bradshaw, Tim Bradstreet, Dan Brereton, Danny Bulanadi, Frank Cho, Frank Cirocco, Lela Dowling, Tom Felton, Stephen E. Gordon, Adi Granov, Mick Gray, Rich Koslowski, Jake Lloyd, Ron Lim, Toshio Maeda, Steve Mannion, Chris Marrinan, Bill Morrison, Darick Robertson, Tone Rodriguez, Don Rosa, Stuart Sayger, Liam Sharp, Scott Shaw, Bill Sienkiewicz, John Totleben, Herb Trimpe, Rick Veitch, Tim Vigil, Ben Wolstenholme, Thomas Yeates, and more to be announced.
