How Much Do I Want to Meet Nathan Fillion?
Wizard World has begun sending out guest announcements for Wizard World Comic Con Chicago, to be held August 20-23, 2015. I don’t normally go in for celebrity sightings, but I am intrigued that this show will include the following faves:
- Nathan Fillion (Serenity, Castle)
- Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye in The Avengers)
- Stephen Amell (Arrow)
- Billie Piper (Doctor Who)
- Arthur Darville (Doctor Who and the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow)
Sadly, Adam Baldwin will also be there. (They also announced comic guests in this press release, a nice balance, but I’m not as excited about Neal Adams or Gerhard or others from that generation. The artists who may be appearing that I’ll be excited about usually aren’t “big name” enough to qualify as special guests, so I’ll keep watching the site lists.) The show runs Thursday through Sunday, but guests only appear on selected days. The VIP experience for Nathan — which includes early admission, a photo op, and a signature — is $350. So I guess I need to figure out just how much I want to shake his hand.
What’s wrong with Adam Baldwin? Just curious.
He’s a gamergate supporter and harasses women who disagree with that on Twitter.
Oh. Okay. Didn’t know that. Don’t pay much attention to gamer news. Thanks!
Me neither, but there was a problem with his appearance at another convention in Australia being protested earlier this year. See here for example: https://www.communityrun.org/petitions/revoke-adam-baldwin-s-invite-to-the-supanova-pop-culture-expo
