California Republic Comic Con, Merced’s own comic convention, returns to the Merced County Fairgrounds for its fourth year on September 14th, 2019.
This year the biggest pop culture event in Merced County is inviting fans to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the Land of the Lost TV show with special guest appearances by Kathleen Coleman (“Holly”), Wesley Eure (“Will”) and Philipp Paley (“Cha-Ka”). The stars will be meeting fans for autograph session and special photo in the signature yellow raft.
Star Wars fans will have a very rare chance to meet the Norwegian actress Ingvild Deila who played Princess Leia in Rogue One. This is Ingvild Deila’s first US appearance.
Ms. Deila and The Land of the Lost cast will be joined by the famous comedian Eddie Deezen, who has lots of credits to his name including Eugene in Grease, and Christopher Darga known for his voice-over role as the obnoxious Kenny Blankenship, a commentator on Most Extreme Elimination Challenge, as well as his Star Trek roles and numerous appearances on popular TV shows like Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Anime and video games lovers will be able to meet Kira Buckland, who gave her voice to 2B in the hit video game NieR: Automata, as well as many anime including Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans and Pokemon Generations, while wrestling fans get a chance to learn everything about the GLOW Wrestling from the 1980’s GLOW star Patricia Summerland known as Sunny the Calfiornia Girl.
The show also features professional artists and creators Chris Marrinan (Nova, Wonder Woman, Doctor Strange), Walden Wong (Deadpool, Black Panther), James Pascoem (Thor, Batman/Punisher, Azrael), Tobe Daranouvong (The Villain Comic, Sumo Geisha), Omar Morales (CruZader, Moon Girl), and Central Valley-grown cosplayers Lucky Bunny, Arlena Fae, Lady Deadpool Fresno, Deadpurple7, Meeper Meeps, and the convention mascot Colossus Girl.
