MegaCon Announces Plans By Brian Jacks
Orlando's MegaCon has announced plans for next year's show, to be hend at the Orange County Convention Center from February 28 to March 2, 2003.
Heading the roster of media guests will be actor Michael Rosenbaum, who has won a strong fan following for his portrayal of a young Lex Luthor on the critically acclaimed Warner Brothers television series Smallville. Rosenbaum will be joined by a collection of some new genre stars and some old television favorites for the South's largest pop culture show. With more than 100,000 square feet of exhibit space featuring publishers, art studios, comic book creators, dealers and other attractions, MegaCon has become known as a great marketplace for comics, toys, anime, games and collectibles.
MegaCon 2003 will feature Japanese Animation film festivals, Anime Sushi's outstanding costume contest, hundreds of gaming tracts by SunQuest*, discussion panels with popular artists and writers and host its home charity auction ACTOR (A Commitment To Our Roots). ACTOR a charity organization that auctions rare and one-of-a-kind comic book art and memorabilia to help provide financial assistance for retired comic book creators. Last year, the two ACTOR auctions and other MegaCon fundraising events collected more than $130,000 for ACTOR's cause.
