Meet the stars of Doctor Who at Magic City Comic Con

As you all know Leydy and I are HUGE Doctor Who fans so when we heard Jenna Coleman, Billie Piper and Peter Davison were coming to Magic City Comic Con we diffidently did a happy dance. I can say without a doubt in my mind that I will be the first person in line to meet Billie Piper. I miss Rose so much and still get all the feels from just looking of pictures of her and the Doctor. 

Meet the stars of the Marvel Universe at Magic City Comic Con

We have to add some action into the mix and when you think action your brain automatically goes to Marvel. You can't go wrong with Ming-Na Wen you have to admit she is a pretty kick-ass Agent May in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. You may know Kelly Hu as Lady Deathstrike in X-Men 2 or China White on CW’s Arrow, maybe The Sorceress in The Scorpion King? Either way I know not to mess with her! Tim Rose is an actor and puppeteer, best known for playing the role of Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, and upcoming in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. 

Meet the stars of Game of Thrones at Magic City Comic Con

Game of Thrones may night be back until next April, but at least getting to meet Kristian Nairn (Hodor) and Finn Jones (Ser Loras Tyrell) should hold you over until the new season starts. ;)
Maybe you can even try to bribe them into telling you what the new season might bring. 

Rocky Horror Picture Show Reunion at Magic City Comic Con

This ones for all my The Rocky Horror Picture Show fans: Barry “Brad” Bostwick, Patricia “Magenta” Quinn, and Nell “Columbia” Campbell, will be appearing all weekend long at Magic City Comic Con. Don’t miss the main event on Saturday night as the trio introduce a special 40th Anniversary Shadow Cast Screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show!



So plan ahead and grab your tickets now! We hope to see you all at the convention. :)
