Fan Expo 2017

This belated post was original meant to be published back in May but Prairie Dog’s servers were getting upgraded or maintained or something and it has taken me forever to get back to getting this posted. In the time since there have been several other Fan Expo’s and Comic Cons. The big one San Diego took place in July and more recently the other weekend saw the big Toronto Fan Expo (by the same people who put on the one in Regina.)

Toronto had the likes of Tim Curry, Richard Dreyfuss and Kathleen Turner along with comic creators like Jim Lee, Scott Snyder, Greg Capullo and Steve McNiven. This weekend will have the Sask Expo up in Saskatoon with Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters, The Crow), John Rys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings, Raiders of the Lost Ark), Cas Anway (The Expanse), Ruth Connell (Supernatural) and Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk). Voice actors Maurice Lamarche and Rob Paulsen (Pinky and the Brain) will also be there.

Fan Expo Regina: Set Phasers To Heartbreak

deannaThe first annual Fan Expo Regina officially left space dock this morning, and Reginians dressed up as Boba Fetts and Iron Men and zombie hunters descended on Evraz Place to partake in an orgy of dork.  We conducted interviews with some of the celebrity guests and those will be up later today, along with some pictures.

Unfortunately, Marina Sirtis of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame wasn’t able to make it to the interview session and so the eternally tumescent teenage fanboy inside of me died a little more.  We did get some great interviews though (hint: sha-wing!). And Councillor Troi will still be at the convention, so all is not lost.
