The Blot's Top 5 Celebrity Guests at Comicpalooza 2014

Comicpalooza Texas' International Comic-Con Logo

In just 10 short days Comicpalooza 2014 kicks off here in Houston, and The Blot will be in attendance all four days reporting on all the pop culture goodness taking place here! It’s really amazing that in just a few short years Comicpalooza has quickly become the biggest and best comic-con in Texas. If you don’t have plans for this Memorial Day weekend then you need to be scheduling a trip to Houston ASAP. The line-up this year is seriously amazing! Some of my all time favorite comic book artists and celebrities will be in attendance. To kick off our Comicpalooza coverage here at TheBlotSays.com, I thought I’d present my Comicpalooza 2014 Top 5 Celebrity Guests List!

5. The Cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Comicpalooza 2014 - Marvel's Agents of SHIELD - Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Elizabeth Henstridge and J. August Richards

The Marvel Cinematic Universe invaded our televisions this season with a new show featuring everyone’s favorite SHIELD Agent, Phil Coulson! The show started slow, but the past few weeks Agents of SHIELD has been insanely good. To celebrate the show’s renewal by ABC, Comicpalooza will be hosting five members of the cast, including stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Brett Dalton, Elizabeth Henstridge and J. August Richards.

4. The Doctors

Comicpalooza 2014 - Fifth Doctor Peter Davison, Sixth Doctor Colin Baker, Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy & Eight Doctor Paul McGann

The Blot still can’t believe how Comicpalooza pulled off this Doctor Who reunion! Here in the United States you’d be hard pressed to find an event that can bring together this many Doctors together at one comic-con. As a Whovian I am beyond excited to see what kind of panels Comicpalooza will be hosting to showcase these amazing talents: the Fifth Doctor Peter Davison, the Sixth Doctor Colin Baker, the Seventh Doctor Sylvester McCoy, and the Eight Doctor Paul McGann! Fantastic!

3. Bret “Hitman” Hart

Comicpalooza 2014 - Bret Hart

Growing up in the ‘80s and ‘90s every boy was required to have a favorite professional wrestler. The Blot’s has always been “The Best There Is, The Best There Was, The Best There Ever Will Be”…the “Excellence of Execution”…Bret “Hitman” Hart! Bret made wearing pink bad ass, and I’ve been wearing it ever since. The Blot’s never had the opportunity to meet one of the all time greatest performers in WWE history, but this Memorial Day weekend I finally will. It’s going to be legendary!

2. John Barrowman

Comicpalooza 2014 - John Barrowman

The Blot loves me some John Barrowman. Whether he’s killing thousands of people as Malcom Merlyn on The CW’s Arrow or saving the globe as Captain Jack on Doctor Who and Torchwood, John Barrowman is the epitome of cool! I’d watch him reading a book if it meant more Barrowman on TV. I got to meet John at SDCC 2009, and he couldn’t have been nicer. Seriously, if you have an opportunity to see him on a panel at any convention I highly recommend it.

1. Billy Dee Williams

Comicpalooza 2014 - Billy Dee Williams

Sorry Han, but there’s no cooler gambler, scoundrel or smuggler in the Star Wars universe than Lando Calrissian! Everyone has their own favorite Star Wars character, and The Blot’s has always been the suave, debonair Administrator of Cloud City Lando. Who else can look killer as a spokesman for Colt 45 and helping kill Boba Fett over the Sarlacc pit!?! Billy Dee is another one of those celebrities The Blot has always wanted to meet but has never been at the same convention as him. If there’s one thing I’m doing over Memorial Day it is getting a picture with Billy Dee!

Honorable Mentions: Lou Ferrigno and the Cast of Comic Book Men (Bryan Johnson, Michael Zapcic and Ming Chen).
