Barrowman, Lee coming to Comic Expo in Cincy

If you are interested in possibly meeting John Barrowman, the former star of Torchwood, you may have that opportunity Sept. 23-25 at Cincinnati Comic Expo in the Duke Energy Convention Center, 525 Elm St., Cincinnati.

Barrowman is one of several significant guests with SF and fantasy backgrounds scheduled to be at the three-day event. Adam Baldwin of Chuck and Firefly, Billy Dee Williams as well as Peter Mayhew,

The headliner among the guests, however, is scheduled to be 93-year-old Stan Lee, the writer and genius behind many of Marvel’s comic creations. The event is being billed as the “Final Midwest Signing by Stan Lee.”

If you can’t make it to Cincy, I will be bringing reports back.
