“…people keep asking if I’m back, and I haven’t really had an answer… but yeah, I’m thinking, I’m back!”
SDCC 2018 is well and truly in the rear view mirror… but that doesn’t mean that we stop Talkin’ Con around here! There’s lots to keep us occupied, each and every week, with some cracking Special Guests, informative con previews and live reports, awesome featured segments, and all the latest convention news and updates that you can shake a stick at!
And we think that we’re starting pretty bloody strong with our first episode of the new season out of the gate: we have two Special Guest interviews for you this week, one of your genuine Hollywood superstar variety and two people that are not only rockstars of international comics but also the UK convention scene:
First up, we’re speaking to Cas Anvar, star of sci-fi hit THE EXPANSE, delving into all of his favourite comic con highlights, as well as talking about how it’s the fans that he meets at such events that have made the show the massive success it is, even supporting its revival on Netflix. Caz will be part of a huge EXPANSE contingent, making their way to Dragoncon at the end of this month where they will be making their first 2018 appearance together – the show is also up for a prestigious Dragon Award (‘Best TV Show Of The Year’)!
And then, if that’s not big enough for you, we’ll be chatting with comics art team Ted Brandt and Ro Stein, part of the creative force behind new Image Comics release CROWDED, talking all about the new book and also the current comics convention landscape in the UK. Things are afoot with the shows that fans can go to in 2018, especially for comics fans… exciting stuff!
All of this, and your burning questions on the YouTube Q&A chat, and we should have a pretty packed show for our first one back. It’s onward and upward from here, baby!
