Eh, decent sized city.
This is the first convention for us in 2013, and it’s one hell of a doozy! Put on by the good folks of Dallas, this year’s Sci-Fi Expo promises to be like no other. With several cast members from Battlestar Galactica, The Walking Dead, AND Back to the Future, let’s just say we are squeeing at sonic levels. It’s one thing to snag “Extra #3 from the pilot episode of The Walking Dead (I’m not saying they got this person), but it’s quite another to get the badass with the sword, the lady who brings Michonne to life, Danai Gurira.
Hold your horses, you’re not a Walking Dead fan? How about you calm the hell down and then get excited all over again for CHRISTOPHER FUCKIN’ LLOYD? Um, yes please! He will be joined by BTTF alum, Lea Thompson, who played the hottest mom in science fiction movies for quite a while.
Are you still not impressed, readers?
Comic lovers who missed George Perez the last time due to ridiculous lines, have no worry for he is back and willing to sign anything your heart desires along with Adam Hughes, Michael Golden, and Joe Eisma!
We hope you join us on February 9th and 10th…more than likely we’ll be snapping photos of cosplayers or buying the odd Star Wars toy, but we will be there so come say hi!
Sci-Fi Expo will be held at the Irving Convention Center and tickets can be purchased here for a whopping $20!
Aaah, February. How your 29 days of pink and red frosted desserts almost make me forget that there’s something better than a commercial holiday like Valentine’s Day: the Sci-Fi Expo in Dallas, Texas! That’s right, fellow Texans, there is a convention during the month of love to enjoy and celebrate that which we love best.
This year’s guests, brought to you by Original Pix and C2 Ventures, are a fantastic group ranging from Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel alum, Eliza Dushku to the best known cheerleader from network television, Hayden Panetierre to Firefly hottie Jewel Staite to artists such as Bill Sienkiewicz and Mark Brooks. I’m unsure if I’m more excited to mumble my way through a conversation with Eliza or stutter my way through one with James O’Barr about how much I love The Crow.
The schedule of events has yet to be released but as always, I’m sure it’ll fulfill your nerdiest dreams!
Admission will cost you a mere 15 gold pieces..err I mean $15 but you have the opportunity to shell out a bit more for the coveted Priority and VIP passes as well. The convention takes place this February 11-12 at the Irving Convention Center. Be sure to check out the official site for more information!
I don’t know about you, but I’m damn excited. I’ll have to refrain from manhandling a certain rogue Slayer. See you there!
UPDATE: Sci-Fi Expo regrets to announce Hayden Panettiere will no longer be in attendance.
