Cold weather and rain were not enough of a force in the ‘verse to keep thousands of comic book, sci-fi, fantasy, role playing, gaming and cosplay fans from beaming into the Springfield Expo Center for a weekend of fun.
The three-day event featured celebrities from the world of sci-fi and fantasy, including Jewel Staite, who starred in the cult sci-fi classic series Firefly and its accompanying feature film Serenity. George Lowe, an actor and comedian who is known for being the voice of Space Ghost in Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast and Cartoon Planet.
The event also featured Q&As with the event’s major guests, breakout panels on everything from creative writing to studies on serial killers to creating podcasts.
The event also had a charitable impact: it raised funds for The Kitchen, Inc., helping the homeless throughout the Springfield community.
