Back to the Expo by Chad Elijah

The  Sci-fi Expo ran from February 9th – 10th and it was an absolute success. I’ve been to a lot of conventions in the course of the press work we have done with Lotus Comics Press and it was amazingly done. Mark, Kathy, and Ben have out done themselves. I would have to say having the cast of Back to the Future was awesome. The cast included Christopher Lloyd (aka Doc Brown), Lea Thompson (Lorraine Baines), Claudia Wells (Jennifer Parker), and James Tolkan (Mr. Strickland). These guys were absolutely outstanding during the Q & A. Mark did a great job directing the fans to questions and leading the stars to great stories and experiences they told.

On a personal level, Back to the Future changed my life into being more creative with what I do for a living. I just wish there was a working Hover Board from Back to the Future II. They also had Bruce Boxleitner (aka Tron), and Cindy Morgan (Lora/Yori) from Tron the movie. It was great to see all the fans come in support of their favorite movies and comic book heros. Speaking of comics, they had guests such as George Pérez, Adam Hughes, and Cynthia Martin. In the past they had Stan the Man Lee, John Hughes, and John Romita Jr. – artist of Kick Ass. I personally believe this was the best convention experience I have been to in years. We had the pleasure of interviewing Gil Gerard (aka Buck Rogers) who is a supreme geek and was one of the coolest people to talk to. I highly recommend checking out this convention. Their next convention is Dallas Comic Con which is May 17th through 19th. You can check these out at Scifiexpo.com for more details. Ben, Mark, Kathy, and the staff were amazing at taking care of the customers. I can not wait until May’s convention to see what is next!
