    Guest are Carrie Fisher, Ray Park and Daniel Logan.

    AeroSith and the Death Star Repairmen were going to perform but Peter Tork's (of The Monkees) band is playing and he has specified in his contract that no other band can play. Funny, cause AeroSith is a comedy act not a band??

    Anybody attending? --Billy

    I walk by there every day to and from work, so maybe I'll leave early and check it out Friday. I was gonna leave early anyway since i have the fan film program at Westbury that night. Who knows--maybe I'll find some amazing fan film bootleg in the dealer room just hours before the show.

    But I doubt it. :)

Just an incredible lineup of great art / writers ever assembled at a Big Apple Convention. Many Independent comic book publishers will also be there promoting their latest works.

    Part of the festivities at the Expo will include panel discussions with the celebrities and artists present. These Q & A sessions help to bring the guests closer to the fans, and are part of what draws so many people to these conventions.
