Comicpalooza 2013 Announces More Special Guests at Convention

Last year's edition of Comicpalooza at the George R. Brown Convention Center was a success all around, giving Houstonians three days to mingle with one another and meet some of their favorite sci-fi idols, and, of course, to buy plenty of collectibles to fill their homes with.

The organizers have begun to announce this year's special guest appearances, and so far they have some fun names signed on to appear.

The names include Michelle Rodriguez; Cary Elwes; Peter Mayhew; Star Trek: Deep Space Nine's Avery Brooks and Armin Shimerman; comic-book legend Bernie Wrightson; René Auberjonois; fifth Doctor Who Peter Davison; Ian McNeice; Teen Wolf dad James Hampton; Sam Huntington; Craig Parker; novelist Kevin J. Anderson; and Alan Dean Foster.

My Little Pony voice actresses Andrea Libman and Tabitha St. Germain will no doubt be the favorite attractions of the local Bronies.

Invader ZIM voice Richard Horvitz is also on board, but I know him better as the geek from Summer School.

Most important, David Yost and Walter E. Jones, commonly known as the blue and black Power Rangers, will be there. Calling all millennials -- be sure to request this weekend off.
