DFW is ready, are you? Fan Expo Dallas returns to the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in downtown Dallas this weekend, September 17 - 19.

It's been a couple of years since we have been to a major Comic Convention and the Fan Expo people usually put on a good one. We're hoping this weekend, even with some COVID restrictions, this one will be as good as can be expected.

There have been a few stars that have dropped out due to COVID concerns and other stated reasons, but the list that is supposed to be there is still pretty darn good, here are a few:
