March is a busy month for conventions. We’ve already had Starfest Denver which closed out on the 13th and had some great guests like: Michael Dorn, Jaime Murray, Bob Morley, Tahmoh Penikett, Nana Visitor and Connor Trinneer as well as a host of other guests.
And there’s still a whole lot more to come.
Coming this month
Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo March 18th – 20th
Silicon Valley Comic Con March 18th – 20th
Toronto Comicon March 18th – 20th
Salt Lake Comic Con March 24th – 26th
WonderCon March 25 – 27
Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo is being held in South Building at McCormack Place, Chicago IL and is featuring an amazing line up of entertainment and comic book guests.
Seriously, an amazing line-up. Edward James Olmos anyone? John Cusack? Rose McGowan? Yes, Yes and triple yes. And that’s only scratching the surface. Get onto their page and check out their guest list. And that’s just the entertainment guests. They have an incredible line up of comic guests that you guys will love.
Silicon Valley Comic Con is going to be EPIC. Seriously seriously EPIC. This is the inaugural event being run by none other than Steve Wozniac. This convention is taking place in the San Jose Convention Center in California and will have some great guests.
How great? Well let’s see. There’s Michael J. Fox, Stan Lee, Julie Benz, William Shatner, Christopher Lloyd, John Heder and more. There’s going to be some great displays too with a working, road legal Delorian time machine, a Madame Toussauds wax works, and the Stan Lee Museum to name but a few.
There promises to be a lot of surprises too so watch out for them.
Toronto Comic Con is being held in the Metro Toronto Convention Center and is not only featuring some guests that I would personally like to meet but it’s also featuring cosplay Q and A sessions covering a wide range of topics from beginners to pro’s and even cosplay photography tips to really push your posts over the edge.
Back to the guests. Jason Isaacs, Jonathan Frakes, Ernie Hudson, Karen Allen and more are all scheduled to appear. Unfortunately Bruce Greenwood won’t be there as scheduled.
Salt Lake Comic Con is billing itself as a fan experience and to be honest, that’s exactly what it is. The guest line up is huge and even has legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin making an appearance. It’s taking place in the Salt Palace Convention Center from March 24th – 26th and is looking like it’s going to be a blast. The guest line up is huge and you’d be better off visiting their site rather than me rattling off that list but the guests I’m excited about are George Takei, Gillian Anderson, Kate Beckinsale, Summer Glau, Matt Smith, Norman Reedus, LeVar Burton and Danai Gurira.
Of course, what would a convention be without Cosplay and this convention is hosting Cosplay Groups, meet-ups and competitions. More info on all that here.
WonderCon is being held in the Los Angeles Convention Center from March 25 – 27 and is going to be a real treat to all of us comic book fans. The guest line-up is chocked full of great artists, writers, cartoonists and authors.
There is a great schedule of Anime movies going to be shown during the conference. The list of movies is long… very long. Bring your popcorn and get ready for an Anime binge of epic proportions.
So the question I have is: Are you going to go to any of these conferences or events and if so, who will you be going as?
I’d love to write a post about your experiences at these cons so if you feel like sharing your pics and having a post up about your antics, contact me using the comments below or via Twitter or Facebook using the links at the top or bottom of this page.
