May is here and its time again for the pop culture event of the season in Dallas, TX. The Dallas Convention Center will be host to thousands of movie, TV, and comic book fanatics starting Friday, May 29th to Sunday, May 31st. They have a lot to be excited about with one of the best lineup of celebrities Dallas Comic Con Fan Expo has ever had.
A couple actors from two franchises that are fresh on the minds of everyone right now will be in attendance. Carrie Fisher will get “Star Wars” fans pumped up for the release of “Episode VII – The Force Awakens” in December. Gillian Anderson will be on hand to greet people and field questions about the new “X-Files” television show.
Legendary comic book creator Stan Lee makes a return visit to Dallas Comic Con. I doubt there’s a shortage of folks who haven’t had a chance to meet this renowned icon. For those who have already met him, you can never have too many items signed by “The Man.”
The illustrious Barbara Eden is joined by co-star Bill Daily for an “I Dream of Jeannie” reunion that classic TV fans in the Metroplex have no doubt been anticipating. I’m sure many conversations will revolve around the memories of working with the late great Larry Hagman.
Batman fans will get a chance to meet Robin Lord-Taylor (Penguin) and Drew Powell (Butch) from the hit television show “Gotham.” Adam West and Burt Ward, the Caped Crusaders from the 1960s, are making an encore appearance so everyone can get those new Complete Series Blu-ray and DVD box sets signed.
Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk of “Firefly” fame will also be there. Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson returns to let everyone know who they’re going to call. Several of the men who donned Godzilla’s suit are also going to be there.
Several “Doctor Who” celebrities will be at Dallas Comic Con. The Doctor himself, Sylvester McCoy, is joined by traveling partners Billie Piper and Karen Gillan. They might be from different eras, but they’re all tied together through universal calamity.
Don’t fret if you’re more interested in comic books than television and movies. Batman artist Neal Adams and Swamp Thing creator Bernie Wrightson are the unofficial guests of honor next to Stan Lee. Another big draw for Marvel fans is Winter Soldier co-creator Steve Epting. Those who love the latest incarnations of Harley Quinn will be happy to know artists Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Connor, and Chad Hardin will be signing autographs.
It’ll be a weekend you won’t forget at Fan Expo’s Dallas Comic Con. Throw on your best costume and get ready for all the fun. For more information and a full list of guests, go to the event’s official website.
