Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo announces first guest; listen-up Agents of SHIELD fans!
First pop culture post!
Time to start planning those cosplay costumes!
The Calgary Comic Expo has announced their first guest. From Agents of SHIELD, Agent May herself, Ming-Na Wen!
Ming-Na will be appearing Saturday only. For more info:
I’m a big fan of the Marvel movies and a big fan of Agents of SHIELD, haven’t missed an episode yet. Very cool that the plot of the show is happening along with the movies. Was also a big fan of ER, so would be cool to meet Ming-Na.
The big question is, when do tickets go on sale? Usually it’s the VIP tickets that sell-out right away, usually within a couple weeks. The organizers usually have more than one wave of tickets so watch their website. Mark your calendars, the first tickets go on sale Nov 1.
I’ve been going to our local Comic Expo for three years now and I have to commend the organizers for doing a great job. The first one I went to was the very first Comic Con I ever went to. And the highlight was getting to meet the entire cast of Star Trek The Next Generation. Seems like ever since that 25th anniversary reunion of the TNG cast, our expo has been picking up steam and moving up the ranks of most popular cons in North America. So, be sure to get your tickets early, as each year they are selling out earlier and earlier.
As far as the cosplay costumes go, it’s a good bet the popular ones this year will probably be Groot, Star-Lord, Winter Soldier, Falcon, and SHIELD Agents.
I wonder what epic reunion the organizers have planned for this year?
The Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo runs from April 16-19, 2015.
