“It’s an amazing time to be a fan of all things geek right now” remarked Martha Donato, President of MAD Event Management, the producers of Long Beach Comic Con and several more pop culture events across the globe. “With our favorite comic characters crossing over into TV and film at an ever accelerating rate, we are more than happy to continue to provide a safe space for fans new and old to come together and celebrate where imagination, creativity, and drive can take us.”
For our first major announcement, MAD Event Management is proud to welcome the iconic and unforgettable William Shatner, joining us Saturday, September 2nd for Long Beach Comic Con! Most fans instantly recognize Mr. Shatner as James T. Kirk of Star Trek fame (greatest star ship captain of all time), while we also have fond memories of T.J. Hooker, or in more recent TV history, a comical turn as the “Big Giant Head” on 3rd Rock from the Sun! For horror fans, it’s got to be all about Kingdom of the Spiders, The Devil’s Rain, or his legendary roles on The Twilight Zone. Whether battling a lizard alien on a desolate rock planet or belting out “Rocket Man” as only he can, there’s no doubt William Shatner’s moments on screens large and small will always be highly entertaining and memorable… and now you have a chance to meet him in person!
