ACCC 2015 Preview

Alamo City Comic Con’s second year was a great success. Year three will establish it as one of the go to comic and pop culture conventions of the year. In addition to the return of the legendary Stan Lee, AMC’s Comic Book Men (Ming Chen, Mike Zapcic, and Bryan Johnson) will make a return. There will also be another strong showing of The Walking Dead past and present cast members. You will also be seeing a big cast presence for Sons Of Anarchy. Speaking of Sons Of Anarchy, Ron Pearlman (Hellboy himself) will be in attendance. And if The Right Hand of Doom was not enough, an acting legend who made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Agents of S.H.I.L.D, Admiral Adama, Commander of the Battlestar Galactica, Edward James Olmos is coming to ACCC. Oh, and so is Ming Na. But it doesn’t stop there. Fringe fans be prepared for John Noble.

And Alamo City Comic Con is not complete with another of its unique traditions, what you could call nostalgia panels. The stars of Flash Gordon, Sam Jones and Melody Anderson will be in attendance along with James Tolkan and Claudia Wells from Back to the Future. There is also the wrestling tradition at this con. This year’s group features legends “The Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Jerry “The King” Lawler. Cosplay will also be represented with Ivy Doomkitty and Lena Vamp, among others. And of course no con is complete without comics, there is another strong list of artists and writers including Scott Lobdell, Larry Hama, and Billy Tucci.

New this year is the Alamo City Film Festival.

The film festival is a separate event that is being held in conjunction with ACCC. It will showcase feature films, short films and documentaries from around the world. It will also host the Texas Premier of the indie fan film, Star Trek: Renegades which stars Walter Koenig, Sean Young, and Adrienne Wilkinson.

More celebrity and artist talent is on hand and the commitment to artists remains with a large artists ally. Alamo City Comic Con remains con you should put on your list. ACCC takes place Friday, Sep. 11th through Sunday, Sep. 13. Thursday night, Sep. 10th, the floor will be open to VIPs.
