Amazing Las Vegas Comic Returns to The South Point June 19-21, 2015


The Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con is returning for it's Junior appearance to the South Point Hotel and Casino this June. Like it's Freshman and Sophomore years before, AVLCC is coming back to the Las Vegas Strip to entertain fans with the latest and greatest from the world of comics.

“We have packed this year’s convention with even more creative and exciting programming, and know it will be an unforgettable event,” said Jimmy Jay, co-owner of Jay Company Comics and promoter of Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con. “We are thrilled to bring the ‘architects of pop culture’ together, which means that fans will be able to meet the creators of their favorite comics-turned-movie blockbusters in one weekend.”

Like previous years, this years Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con will deliver featured guests and architects of today's pop culture:

  • Kevin Eastman – for more than three decades, kids (and adults) have watched the TMNT movies, enjoyed the cartoons and played with the toys. Eastman created TMNT and started the whole enterprise as an independent comic book.
  • John Barrowman – star of Arrow, Doctor Who and Torchwood.
  • Steve McNiven – the most important Marvel Comics artist of the century; best-known for top-charting Civil War and Old Man Logan, and for revamping Guardians of the Galaxy. His most recent work is perhaps his most monumental: Death of Wolverine. 
  • Rob Liefeld – creator of Deadpool, the most popular character in the Marvel Universe, whose title movie will be released by Fox next year. Liefeld created popular X-Men mainstays such as Cable, Domino, Shatterstar and X-Force before launching Image Comics. 
  • Greg Capullo – his pencils have placed Batman on the top of the charts more than any single artist in the last four years. His previous work includes Spawn, Haunt and Creech for Image Comics, and a fan-favorite run on X-Force for Marvel Comics.
  • George Perez – Perez is an American writer and illustrator of comic books including The Avengers, Teen Titans and Wonder Woman. 
  • Power Rangers – an all-star lineup of actors from the popular TV series will attend the event all weekend long.

Additional programming highlights:·

  • Family Feud CosplayFriday night: A twist on the popular TV game show, teams of cosplayers will compete in a Family Feud-style game of geek fandom.
