Everything we saw at Michigan Comic Con 2019


Arguably never before in history has there been a better time to be a nerd than right now. Superheroes are the norm, dressing up as a wizard is considered très chic, and dragons, as always, are really friggin’ cool. That being said, we don’t mind having multiple comic-centric events to choose from each year, including the return of Michigan Comic Convention, which gathered a gaggle of famous faces and voices at Cobo Center to celebrate all things nerdy.

This year’s celebrity guests include recent cancer survivor and our forever Batman Val Kilmer, Star Trek mainstay Worf played by Michael Dorn, and the one true Gryffindor and master of the glow up, Matthew Lewis, aka Neville Longbottom. Also scheduled to appear is famed voice actor and Reno 911! star Carlos AlazraquiBob West aka America’s favorite dinosaur, Barney; Veronica Taylor, who voiced Pokémon’s Ash Ketchum; and the voice actors behind each of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Cowabunga.
