Denver Comic Con Approaches

We’re just over 10 weeks away from the 6th Annual Denver ComicCon!  The Colorado Convention Center is once again hosting the event that 100,000 plus people will attend.  June 30 – July 2, Geek, Nerds, Cosplay and Gaming take over the Convention Center for a weekend of awesomeness.

The Guests that have us excited, run the gambit from Pop Culture and Music Icons, to Artist – This year’s list is immense, but here are a new that we’re most excited about.

Weird Al!! – From ‘Eat It’ to ‘Tacky’, Weird Al has been entertaining our ear holes since the early 80’s, and isn’t stopping anytime soon.  This is purely speculation, but could a concert happen?! How awesome would that be?!

 

 

Its a ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ Reunion! Juliet Landau, Eliza Dushku and James Marsters (technically Felicia Day too) were all on ‘Buffy’ back in the day.  This series is among many people’s favorites, and ours too!  This should be a fun reunion.

 

 

 

 

Wallace Shawn is coming to DCC?! NCONCEIVABLE!!  Really, thats – Inconveivable!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

Voice Actors!  We’re really happy to see that more Voice Actors are getting the spotlight.  Here are a few we’re excited about –

From Aqua Teen Hunger Force, DBZ, American Dad, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Futurama, Samurai Jack and of course, The Dark Knight, BATMAN will be in the house!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

These are just some of who we’re interested in for this year’s DCC.  Check back in a few days for another bunch of Guests we’re excited about and what our plans for the weekend might be.

Speech Bubble Episode 38 – “Fearless” Fred Kennedy

If you live in Toronto, you know him as the popular DJ on 102.1 The Edge. But his comic book geek cred is strongest as the writer behind the scifi epic ,The Fourth Planet published quarterly by Chapterhouse Comics. He’ll tell us how the idea had its roots in his love of paleo-cultural anthropology (the origins of culture) and how Marvel’s Infinity Gauntlet changed his life. Meanwhile, we discuss why the endless crossover events and relaunches are ruining comics, how Fred got his start in radio and why he entered the ring with his own podcast Issue Zero.
