      Motor City Comic Con 2017

      Motor City Comic Con 2017

      This year was the 28th year of the Motor City Comic Con. Every year the con has gotten bigger. This year was no exception. At the con that took place from May 19th to the 21st, thousands flocked to the Suburban Showcase in Novi to meet their favorite actors and comic creators. Not to mention the exhibitor’s that sold everything from graphic novels to props from your favorite movies and TV shows. The guest list read like mix of 80’s nostalgia to some current heavy hitters like Ron Perlman from Sons of Anarchy, and Michael Rooker from The Walking Dead, and more recently Guardians of the Galaxy Volume’s 1 and 2. For the Whovian’s in attendance there was Billie Piper who played Rose Tyler in  Christopher Eccelston,  and David Tennant’s run on Doctor Who. She also plays Brona Croft on Penny Dreadful. John Barrowman was there also. You will remember him for playing Captain Jack Harkness on Doctor Who and Torchwood, as well as Malcolm Merlin on CW’s Arrow, and Legends of Tomorrow. You also had Sean Astin from The Goonies, Rudy, and of course The Lord of the Rings movies. There were also comic luminaries Like Dave Gibbons of Watchmen Fame, as well as Neal Adams who drew pretty much everything in the 70’s and 80’s, but is probably best know for his run on Green Lantern\Green Arrow. Ed Mcguiness of Superman\Batman fame was there as well.

          180 Tom Kane Uses the Force!

          180 Tom Kane Uses the Force!

          Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!

          Tom Kane is a voiceover actor that has probably been in just about every animated series you’ve loved. He was both Yoda and Adm. Yularen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the chancellor in Tim Burton’s 9, Magneto in Wolverine and the X-Men, and Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds.

          Some of his other credits include Ultron in Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow and The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, as well as Mr. Herriman in Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Lord Monkey Fist on Kim Possible, and even Professor Utonium and Him in The Powerpuff Girls.

          Kane also is a prominent videogame voice actor, appearing in numerous titles from bits parts to major roles like Gandalf, Professor X, and the lead characters in many Star Wars games. He also is the voice of Takeo Masaki, a Japanese World War II soldier in the Zombies game mode of the Call of Duty game franchise.

          Outside of animation, he records movie trailers, television promos and commercials, as well as various awards programs, including the Oscars. And in 2012, he took over for Joe Hursh as the voice of the Walt Disney World Monorail System in Florida.

          And if that wasn’t enough, Kane also is the voice of the Plague Champion in Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II.

          That’s what you can read on the official website for Planet Comicon.

          Before I share this great audio, we’ll visit The Neverland Trailer Park to take a look at the final trailer for Wonder Woman!
