Ever since last year’s Denver Comic Con ended we have been pumped for DCC 2014, and so many great guests have been revealed already and more incredible guests have been added to next years event. Three more guests have been added and we can’t wait to see them as well as some additional amazing guests for Denver Comic Con 2014. There have already been some great guests announced for this years event and there are some more that were announced over the weekend.
Timelords, you will be extra pumped about the next guest that Denver Comic Con announced. Peter Davison was the next guest announced. That’s right, the fifth doctor will be at this years event. For those of you that didn’t watch Doctor Who at this time he played the Doctor from 1981 to 1984. He broke the record for playing the youngest Doctor until Matt Smith took over in 2009. Over the years he has returned to Doctor Who and came back for Time Crash, a special episode written by Steven Moffat which featured the Fifth Doctor meeting the Tenth Doctor, played by future son-in-law David Tennant. He also has many other roles which include but are not limited to: A Very Peculiar Practice, All Creatures Great and Small, Fiddler’s Three, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, The Tomorrow People, Mixed Blessings, and Mystery. I can’t wait to see Peter Davison at Denver Comic Con this year
The next guest is Gareth Hinds who is a literary illustrator. His work is amazing and he is known for: Beowulf, King Lear, Romeo and Juliet, The Odyssey, and The Merchant of Venice. Beowulf and The Odyssey are two of my personal literary favorites so I cannot wait to see Gareth Hinds. Its great to not only get some great comic book artists, but also some amazing literary artists as well.
Denver Comic Con not only holds one of the best cons in the nation, but there are also some great benefits when you attend. The main benefit in going to Denver Comic Con is the proceeds go to
Comic Book Classroom, a literacy program for kids. Not only will you be attending one of the best cons in the nation, but you will also be contributing to what matters the most, our kids and future kids. Comic Book Classroom has excellent panels and activities throughout the con, and we felt like all 4 of our tickets were easily paid for in the activities the kids participated in. If you have kids, not only will they have a great time seeing some of their favorite celebrities, but they also get the enjoyment of participating in so many kids activities. There are even several panels for the kiddos on how to make their own comics, and they also will get the fun joy in making comics of their own. Even if you don’t have kids, you have the excitement of attending one of the best cons in the nation and also getting the joy of contributing to little ones while you are doing it. Comic Book Classroom arranges excellent after school programs at various schools across the state to help kids learn how to read, write, and write their own comics. For more information on Comic Book Classroom please be sure to visit their website and Facebook page. They also have excellent pamphlets you can print from DCC’s website. Please come and join us for all the excitement at Denver Comic Con next year and contribute to children just by attending. Stay tuned for more guest announcements this year, and please make sure you subscribe to Denver Comic Con’s newsletter.
Tickets are selling fast so don’t wait until last minute and make sure you pick them up soon. Also make sure to subscribe to the newsletter on Denver Comic Con’s website so you get all the updates. I hope to see everyone at Denver Comic Con 2014.
