Come meet a rising star in the comic book ranks and say hello to an old friend from Gilligan’s Island this weekend.
We all remember Dawn Wells as the delightful Mary Ann, one of the stranded ‘castaways’ on the iconic 1960s sitcom Gilligan’s Island. Jonathan Glapion is the inker on such famous DC titles as Batman: The Court of Owls; Batgirl: The Flood; Batman & Robin: Batman Reborn; Batgirl: Redemption: Green Lantern: Agent Orange; Teen Titans Spotlight: Cyborg; Final Crisis: Revelations; as well as Marvel Adventures Spider-Man 11: They Call Him Mad!, and 12: Nightmare on Spidey Street, and Ultimate X-Men: Phoenix?
Take a photo with the original Batmobile from 1996. Other guests include Jeremy Shada (Finn from Adventure Time); Sgt. Slaughter (Fri./Sat. only); Doug Jones from Hellboy (Sun. only); Jim Starlin (Batman/Avengers); Alex Vincent; Jason Craig (artist Wolverine, Evil Ernie); Joe Pruett; C. Martin Croker (Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Space Ghost), among many others. There are panels, contests, and fun for all, including zombies from The Walking Dead!
The place to be is the Hotel Preston on Briley Parkway, for a weekend of family fun, and Comic Con action brought to you by your good friends at Comic City Tenn. Nashville Comic & Horror Fest runs Friday from 4-9pm; Saturday 10 am–6 pm; and Sunday from 11 am–4 pm.
