He has been in some legendary movies and he will be at our show for all three days which is incredibly cool since this makes him available to literally thousands of fans. Our entertainment guests span the pop culture universe and we are very proud and pleased to be able to present a show that is so inclusive … we also have the very top comic creators and artists attending our convention which is in keeping with our goal to be the pre-eminent pop culture event in the Midwest.”
