Posted by Mirjana on August 17, 2012
Wizard World Austin Comic Con has revealed its 2012 lineup, and it’s looking quite impressive. Notable mentions include Eliza Dushku, Eve Myles, and the 25-year U.S. reunion for the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation.
Wizard World Austin Comic Con is set to take place from October 26 – 28, 2012 at the Austin Convention Center. Read more about the lineup after the jump.
The biggest story out of Austin looks to be the 25-year reunion for the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation, which ran for seven seasons from 1987 through 1994. The show was a follow-up to the original series from the 1960s, and was hugely successful. All seven of the main crew are scheduled to attend, including Sir Patrick Stewart (Captain Picard). The other Star Trek attendees are: Jonathan Frakes (Commander Riker), LeVar Burton (Lt. Commander La Forge), Michael Dorn (Lt. Worf), Marina Sirtis (Counselor Troi), Brent Spiner (Data) and Gates McFadden (Dr. Beverly Crusher).
If you’re not a Trekkie, have no fear: there will be plenty of other celebrities there to keep you busy. Those scheduled to attend include Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse), Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), James Marsters (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Torchwood), Eve Myles (Torchwood, Doctor Who) and Craig Parker (Spartacus, Lord of the Rings).
There will be plenty of representation on the comic book side as well. Eisner Award Hall of Famer Neal Adams (Batman, Green Lantern) will be in attendance, along with Eisner winners Paul Jenkins (Spiderman, Hulk) and Bernie Wrightson (Swamp Thing, House of Mystery).
