Fan Expo is Vancouver’s biggest fantasy sci-fi anime manga video game cartoon comic book toy and board game extravaganza! If you love ANYTHING that’s even remotely geeky, you’re going to have a great time February 15-16 at the Vancouver Convention Centre! This year’s line-up of guests is exceptional. Come meet these stars:
*Bruce Campbell from The Evil Dead series!
*Todd MacFarlane, creator of Spawn and one of the coolest comic book artists to ever live!
*Brian Baumgartner and Óscar Nuñez, AKA Kevin and Oscar from the NBC hit series, The Office!
*Sean Schemmel and Christopher Sabat, the English voice actors for Goku and Vegeta from Dragonball Z!
*Levar Burton from Star Trek: The Next Generation and Reading Rainbow!
*Corey Feldman from The Lost Boys and The Goonies (among so much more).
*Christina Ricci from The Addams Family!
*Brandon Fraser from The Mummy and Encino Man!
And that’s really just the tip of the iceberg. There will be many more stars and creative personalities on hand, ready to take selfies and headshots, sign merchandise, and share the secrets of their success!
Of course, the celebs aren’t the real reason to go to Fan Expo. The real reason is to hang out with people who get you, who share your interests and are willing to gush about Battlestar Galactica or cry about the ending of The Walking Dead with you. It’s a real treat to walk around and see the incredible effort people put into cosplay, transforming themselves into your favourite characters, and snapping up incredible deals on collectibles from hundreds of vendors displaying their rarest and most coveted merchandise! The expo offers an opportunity to play board games with people who already know the rules, and make new friends while you’re doing it. THAT’s why you should go to Fan Expo!
