It’s easy to find something to do in Las Vegas when the city doesn’t close. Restaurants, gambling, entertainment, the list goes on. With some much to do and see, it can be hard to stand out and attract the masses. Amazing Comic Con is set to hold to its first con of 2017 and it’s first since consolidating its conventions and concentrating on putting on two marquee cons. They’re bringing the fire power to Vegas with a lineup up that pays homage to current pop culture and finds a way to stand out in the pile of activities Las Vegas has to offer.
Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con returns to the Las Vegas Convention Center for June 23 – 25 and for me, it will be my first Vegas con. Just because Amazing Arizona isn’t happening doesn’t mean I have to miss out on the quality con Amazing puts on. Tickets are currently on sale with general admission and various VIP packages available. Now let’s take a look at who will be appearing…
Chances are good you are familiar with the uber popular Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, maybe you even owned a figure or two or watched one of the several animated shows. Co-creator and artist Kevin Eastman is set to appear and sign all your turtle swag. Maybe no character has more buzz right now than Cable of X-Force fame with the recent announcement that Josh Brolin will be portraying the character in Deadpool 2. The creator of Cable and Deadpool, Rob Liefeld will be signing at Amazing Las Vegas and presumably be putting on one of his can’t miss panels. Speaking of Marvel, the living legend who had a huge part of making Marvel the brand it is, Stan Lee, is set to appear. Stan has been slowly backing down the number of con appearances, this could be one of your last chances to the legend. Add in industry headliners Todd McFarlane (Spawn), Gerry Conway (Punisher), Jason Fabok (Batman) and you’ve got quite the talent list.
How about Pokémon? The Nintendo owned craze that has swept the world more than once and no human character on the show is more recognizable than Ash Ketchum. The voice of Ash? Voice actress Veronica Taylor who will be meeting fans all weekend. The Dynamic Duo of Adam West and Burt Ward, who famously played Batman and Robin in the 1966 Batman series will be joining the guest line up. Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con is looking to celebrate character creators as well as the talent who helped bring those characters to the screen.
I could go on and mention Mat Nastos, Ray Park, and so on but head over to the Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con website, peep the guest list and buy your tickets. I’ll see you in Vegas!
