The Cincinnati Comic Expo is rapidly approaching, and it’s shaping up to be a good one. The convention takes place on September 23-25 at the Duke Energy Convention Center. A number of guests have already been announced, and we’ve got a round-up of some of the biggest names heading to Ohio.
If you’re into all things mysterious, creepy, and kooky, you can meet The Addams Family stars Carel Struycken (Lurch) and Christina Ricci (Wednesday). Struycken, also known for projects including Twin Peaks and Men in Black, will appear all three days. Ricci, who fans will also recognize most recently from Yellowjackets (among several other projects), will appear on Saturday and Sunday.
Ghostbusters: Afterlife will see another reunion with its young stars Logan Kim (Podcast) and Mckenna Grace (Phoebe) — who’s also well-known for playing the younger version of characters in every biopic you’ve ever watched (plus Captain Marvel and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina). The duo will appear all three days.
If sci-fi, superheroes, and magic are more your speed, Aleks Paunovic (Hawkeye), John Glover (Smallville), Bonnie Wright (Harry Potter franchise), and William Shatner (Star Trek franchise) are heading to the expo. Paunovic and Glover will be there all three days, with Wright and Shatner attending on Saturday and Sunday.
Attendees will also have the chance to meet The Fog and Creepshow‘s Adrienne Barbeau, actor/singer/composer Paul Williams, and Roseanne‘s Tom Arnold. Barbeau and Arnold will appear all three days, and Williams will appear on Saturday and Sunday. Richard Dreyfuss (Jaws, Murder at Yellowstone City) and John Noble (Elementary, The Lord of the Rings) will also appear.
Animation fans can meet a number of notable voice actors. Attending all three days are Diane Pershing (She-Ra: Princess of Power), Loren Lester (Batman: The Animated Series), One Punch Man trio Ray Chase, Robbie Daymond, and Max Mittelman, Sarah Wiedenheft (Dragon Ball Super), and Mike McFarland (Dragon Ball Z). Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) will appear on Saturday and Sunday.
