If you’re a fan of cons because of the special guests and panels, All Star Comic Con will not disappoint. Throughout the week, you’ll catch speedy appearances by Jessica Parker Kennedy of CW’s The Flash, a deadly presentation from Luke Tennie of SyFy’s hit show Deadly Class, and an out-of-this-world landing from E.T. the Extra Terrestrial’s C. Thomas Howell.  

You can also jump right into the pages of a comic book with writers Gaile Simone and Tom King or comic artists Clay Mann, Mike Zeck, and Arthur Suydam. Then, if you haven’t had enough fun, be sure to be on the lookout for House of Pain’s “Danny Boy” O’Connor and The Passage’s Brooke Langton as you explore the con. 

Some of these celebrities will hold special panels throughout the event and even provide you with a chance to pose for a photo with them.

All Star Comic Con is also bringing a galaxy far, far away right to your own backyard. You can answer the Alliance’s call for help and take on the Empire’s deadliest stormtroopers or embrace the dark side and battle to expand your empire. This will all take place in the event’s Star Wars Village, which will be home to Star Wars cosplayers, props, lightsabers, vehicles, and so much more. So, may the force be with you as you explore the galaxy and determine the fate of the universe.
