Michigan Science Center After Dark: Vintage Video Games III

The third Vintage Video Games event at the Michigan Science Center was a blast! This was our first time attending and I’m glad we made it out. Offworld Arcade brought in a truckload of arcade games, Detroit Respect were selling some awesome shirts, the guys from Motor City Gaming were broadcasting live, and Ghostbusters Detroit were out in force.

I’ll have an event breakdown up this weekend. Thanks everyone for a great time! Thanks to Mallory Crowe for contributing some of these photos!

Motor City Comic Con Update 2017

After the awesomeness of the Ron Perlman announcement last week (See HERE) , MCCC has released a stream of upcoming media guests. To keep you on the up and up, MotorCityGeek is giving you the rundown and a few (unsolicited) opinions.

 Aly Michalka – Aly Michalka got her start on Disney’s Phil of the Future, but most current audiences would recognize her as Peyton from iZombie. She has had major roles in Hellcats and Two and a Half Men and is one half of the hit recording group Aly and Aj. I’ve never heard an Aly and Aj song but now that I know Peyton from iZombie IS Aly, I have the sudden urge to YouTube this…

$40

Photo Ops

Amy Jo Johnson – Amy Jo Johnson is the Pink Power Ranger. Okay, she’s been in all 75 episodes of Flashpoint and had major reoccurring roles on Covert Affairs, Felicity and a plethora of other shows, she will always be the Pink Power Ranger to me. And, as a child of the nineties, I mean that as a sincere compliment.

Appearing

Photo Ops

Marky Ramone – Like the name suggests, Marky was a drummer for the legendary band, the Ramones. Not familiar with The Ramones? If you don’t get “I Wanna Be Sedated” in your head just by reading this, I demand you go to YouTube immediately.

Appearing

Photo Ops

Mena Suvari – Mena Suvari will always be the girl in American Beauty wearing nothing but rose petals to me. Why? No idea. I’ve never seen the movie. But I have seen her in American Pie (I &II) Loser, Spun, Rumor Has It and her guest role in American Horror Story’s first season. She’s been in dozens of other roles in TV and Film and has definitely left her mark on the industry.  And if you’re wondering why she’s coming to a Comic Con, she has done a lot of voice work, including Aerith Gainsborough in Final Fantasy VII and Kingdom Hearts II.

Photo Ops

Sting – Sting is a retired professional wrestler. His prolific career spans over three decades and he is considered one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. I know next to nothing about wrestling and even I know who Sting is. Sting has held 25 total championships between the WCW and TNA (that apparently stands for World Championship Wrestling and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, which might be my favorite name for anything ever).

Appearing
Saturday Only

Autograph
$60

Photo Ops – According to MCCC, he WILL be in face paint for the photos.
$100

Zach McGowan – McGowan is currently a series regular on The 100 and plays Captain Charles Vane on STARZ hot pirate show Black Sails. With 44 different credits to his name on IMDB, this guy has been around. And since the subtitle on his website is “That Guy From That Show”, I like him more already.

Comic Con update by Mallory Crowe – Romance Author

Hellboy is coming to Detroit!

The first big media guest of Motor City Comic Con has been announced. Ron Pearlman will be a featured guest. While some actors are lucky to have one career-defining moment, Ron Pearlman has had dozens of scene-stealing roles. Whether you know him from Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy, or even Beauty and the Beast, this is a great sign for the 2017 lineup.

And in case you missed it, this is him getting in full Hellboy Makeup for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. https://www.facebook.com/pg/SpectralMotion/photos/…

He’ll be there Saturday and Sunday (May 20th and 21st). Autographs are $55 and photo ops are $65.

Can’t wait to hear who else is coming to the D!
