Last year’s event in Lexington drew nearly 10,000 attendees and this year is guaranteed to be even bigger! Attendees will have the chance to meet some of the sci-fi and comic industries’ biggest heroes including William Shatner, George Takei, and Nichelle Nichols who played Captain Kirk, Mister Sulu, and Lt Uhura on the original Star Trek TV series and nearly the entire original cast of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers including the original Green Ranger, Jason David Frank and the original Pink Ranger, Amy Jo Johnson among many others.

On top of all of the celebrity guests this convention will feature hundreds of exhibits from local and nationally known comic artists including Jim Steranko, Bob McLeod, and many more who will amaze you with their artistic talents and stories from the inside of the comic industry.
Also worth mentioning is that the convention features hundreds of vendors of comics and collectible toys that range in price from $1.00 up to thousands of dollars! Many of these vendors will be selling items that you may not have seen since childhood and a walk through the convention floor is surely a walk down memory lane.
