Welcome to the Huntsville Comic and Pop Culture Expo 2018

Are you ready? We are almost a month out for you to come and enjoy the Return to fun with the 3rd annual Huntsville Comic and Pop Culture Expo. This year we have moved the event forward a little, and introducing a lot of new things! We will be hosting the Rocket City Mayhem Smash tourney, screening some films, giving you the opportunities to meet creators and authors in person, having a stand-up comedy show, plus having a cosplay contest, and a live auction to benefit charity. We will be having the original Red Ranger, Austin St. John; Hercules himself, Kevin Sorbo; Johnny Yong Bosch, the Black Ranger, and later the Green Turbo Ranger; Fabian Nicieza, co-creator of the merc with a mouth, Deadpool; Mark Bagley, who was instrumental in our view of Venom; Joe Rubinstein, who is well known for his extensive catalog of work at Marvel; Jermaine “Funnymaine” Johnson – best known for his YouTube series, how Bama fans watched the game; and we will have Mike Zeck and John Beatty, who will be available for you to meet – these two artists were instrumental in making the Punisher the icon that he is today! There will be lots to see and do, which means, you WILL NOT want to miss this! We are super excited to see you all there – get your tickets now!

Are you looking forward to the Funnymaine show? So are we!! All tickets are General Admission, and will not be mailed out, but we are keeping a carefully assembled list of everyone who has a ticket – We will be emailing out details once we get closer to the show.  Don’t miss your opportunity to see this show – you can get tickets here

Remember when we would get up early on Saturday mornings to huddle in front of the Television with a bowl of cereal and get lost in the adventures of Transformers, He-Man, She-Ra, X-Men, and many other of our cartoon favorites? Well here is your chance to relive some of your childhood! We will be setting up an area showing some classics and they will be running all morning! There may even be cereal available to those who get there early…

We are happy to announce that along with the Expo we will also be having Super Smash Bros on the side! This tournament will feature Super Smash Bros 4 the WiiU along with Super Smash Bros Melee for The Nintendo Gamecube! We will be having Singles and Doubles for both! Entry to the tournament will be $5, and you can find more information here

One of the best parts of conventions and expos is getting to dress up! Don’t miss out on your chance to join in on the cosplay at the Expo! Click here for more information!
