Coming up, another “Comic Con.”
This one is the ACE Universe Comic Con, holding its first event of 2019 in Glendale, Arizona (after successful shows in Chicago, Seattle, and Glendale in 2018).
From January 11-13, at the Gila River Arena, super-fans will be able to meet Tom Hiddleston, Michael Fassbender, David Tennant, Krysten Ritter, Charlie Cox, Tye Sheridan, and Alexandra Shipp (with more names still to be announced).
I’m not sure if I’m attending this one, though it’s in my backyard, geographically speaking. I’ve got my request in for media credentials, so we’ll see. There are other factors.
However, as a wonderful husband and father, I am happy to report my wife and daughter will be having a great girls’ weekend in Glendale to meet the one and only Loki (Hiddleston), and I am not jealous at all.
I think everyone should take the opportunity to meet/speak to people whose work they respect and admire any chance they get.
I’m still interested in getting an eye-witness report of how an event like a comic con runs in an arena setting. I’m very used to events being in convention centers, with ballrooms for panels and whatnot, so the difference of the experience is something I’ve been curious about since ACE first burst onto the scene a year ago with this model.
I’ll keep you apprised of any additional guests being announced, and will also let you know of my plans to attend or not.
Till then, stay tuned!
