If you’re looking for 100,000 square feet of comic and pop culture goodness, Steel City Con is the convention for you.

Celebrity guests include Noah Wyle (Falling Skies), Tara Reid (Sharknado), Addy Miller (The Walking Dead), Tom Wopat (The Dukes of Hazzard), John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard), Doug Bradley (Hellraiser), R.A. Mihailoff (Leatherface), Cassandra Peterson (Elvira), Alex Vincent (Child’s Play), Ari Lehman (the first Jason Friday the 13th) and many more.

Autograph prices always have fans wondering how much they need to save up. Steel City Con was kind enough to supply convention goers with a list of autograph prices to help avoid sticker shock. View the autograph and photo op prices here>>> Celebrity Autograph & Photo Op Prices <<<.

Convention admission can also get a bit pricey, especially if you are bringing the whole family. For being a comic and pop culture convention, Steel City Con is quite affordable. Single day passes are only $20 and 3 day passes are only $40. 3 day pass holders also get to enter the convention at 9:30 am on Friday (30 minutes before single day pass holders). Children under 5 are FREE. Parking is also free and there are currently reduced hotel rates for the out-of-town guests. You can purchase your tickets at SteelCityCon.com/Buy-Tickets.

One of my personal favorite parts of a convention are the celebrity Q&A panels. Steel City Con is loaded with top notch panels. 3 day pass holders will see a perk here as well, you get priority seating. Find the Q&A and event schedule here>>>Q&A and Event Schedule<<<. 

Cosplayers and trivia buffs, there will be something for you as well. On Friday from noon-12:45 there will be a trivia contest with tons of great prizes up for grabs (it is open to everyone). On Sunday, there will be a costume contest from 1-3 pm. The costume contest is free to enter and there is $3,000 worth of cash and prizes up for grabs.

Attention HOLLISTON fans attending San Diego Comic-Con: FEARnet has asked me to pass along these awesome opportunities for you at this year’s convention.

FEARnet’s HOLLISTON RETURNS TO COMIC-CON WITH A PANEL AND AUTOGRAPH SIGNING FEATURING STARS ADAM GREEN, LAURA ORTIZ, DAVE BROCKIE, AND DIRECTOR SEAN BECKER ON THURSDAY, JULY 18

 

Presentation Will Include the World Premiere Screening of Series Character Lance Rockett’s (Dee Snider) First Music Video “Love It Down Your Throat,” In Its Entirety

 

(SANTA MONICA – JULY 11, 2013) –Adam Green, acclaimed genre filmmaker (HATCHET; the upcoming DIGGING UP THE MARROW) and writer, producer and star of FEARnet’s original TV series HOLLISTON, will participate in a special panel and autograph signing at Comic-Con, on Thursday, July 18. The signing will take place from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the autograph pavilion, with the panel at 8:30 p.m.  Joining Green will be HOLLISTON co-stars Laura Ortiz (THE HILLS HAVE EYES), and Dave Brockie (GWAR frontman Oderus Urungus), with series director Sean Becker (THE GUILD). The panel will be moderated by fan favorite Alison Haislip (THE VOICE, ATTACK OF THE SHOW). As an added bonus, Green and Brockie will be recording an episode of The Movie Crypt podcast live at the Geek Nation booth on the main convention floor from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. that same day. A HOLLISTON Season 2 poster signing will occur at the booth immediately following the podcast.

 

The brainchild of lifelong genre fan-turned-filmmaker Adam Green, HOLLISTON is an irreverent take on the traditional multi-camera situational comedy, aimed at lovers of true horror, sci-fi and pop culture. The series is currently in the middle of its second season—which premiered on June 4—filled with even more heartfelt hilarity and outrageous storylines, and featuring episodes inspired by J-Horror and Found Footage films, an animated episode, and a multitude of guest appearances from genre icons such as Sid Haig, Bill Moseley, Kane Hodder, Derek Mears, Danielle Harris and Bailee Madison. HOLLISTON currently airs Tuesdays on FEARnet, at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

 

As a special event for fans who attend the panel, the group will unveil the world premiere of series character Lance Rockett’s (Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider) first music video in its entirety. Subsequently, fans can get a behind-the-scenes look at the music video exclusively on FEARnet, on Friday, August 2. The music video will run again during the HOLLISTON marathon on Monday, August 5, with a portion of the video debuting in the Season 2 finale on Tuesday, August 6. The original song, itself, “Love It Down Your Throat,” will be made available for purchase on iTunes right after the season finale airs.

 

“It feels great to be coming back to Comic-Con with HOLLISTON,” Green said. “The show was all but created for the Comic-Con crowd, mixing horror, Sci Fi, heavy metal and pop culture in a classic sitcom format that was always for ‘them’ and never for ‘us’. It’s incredible to see that the show still resonates so strongly with legions of geeks, like me.”

 

HOLLISTON is produced by film and television production company ArieScope Pictures, which was founded in 1998 by Green, producer Cory Neal and cinematographer Will Barratt. ArieScope is an industry leader in independent genre fare, and has produced several theatrical titles over the years, including HATCHET, HATCHET 2, FROZEN, SPIRAL, GRACE, CHILLERAMA, HATCHET 3 and the upcoming DIGGING UP THE MARROW.
