Last year I attended Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con for the first time, and I had a great time at the show, and planned to go back in 2019. After seeing the announcements of the guests they have planned this year, I’m even more excited for the show now.
Today the first set of guests was announced, and it’s quite an impressive list with both movie stars and comic book veterans announced.
The names announced today include Asher Angel (who played Billy Batson in SHAZAM!), Alan Tudyk (whose movie and TV credits are way too long to list but include Firefly, the new Aladdin movie, Star Wars Rogue One, and a lot more).
From the comic book side will be the creative team behind the Infinity War Saga, who will be making their first appearance on this side of the country in nearly 30 years. George Perez (who is retiring from conventions soon), along with Jim Starlin, Ron Lim, and Joe Rubenstein will be at the show this year. Also announced was Rob Liefeld, who recently returned to the X-Men universe with Major X (which sold out it’s first two issues before they even were released).
There are a lot of other names announced today, which you can read in the press release below.
