GeekView: Celebrating 10 Years of StocktonCon

GeekView: Celebrating 10 Years of StocktonCon
By Middagh Goodwin

StocktonCon is celebrating 10 years of geeky fun at the Stockton Arena on August 13-14th 11 am-5 pm each day. Overwhelming fan support has helped StocktonCon move from a one-day event at the University of the Pacific in 2012, to one of the top pop culture events on the West Coast, bringing thousands of fans of comics, cosplay, sci-fi and fantasy to Stockton Arena each year.

Every year Mike Millerick and his team bring some of the best guests in geekdom to Stockton and this year being the 10-year anniversary they have spared no expense. The announcement of their first guest Ron Pearlman(Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy, Blade II, Conan the Barbarian and voice acting in more animated series and video games than I have space for) got people excited once again for this event. Add to that Jon Harder(Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory), Bary Bostwick(Rocky Horror Picture Show, Spin City), Karyn Parsons(Fresh Prince of Bel Air) and Ryan Hurst(Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy). If that wasn’t enough WWE Hall of Famers JBL and Mickie James will be at the show as well. But wait there’s more, you can not have a comic con without creators the legendary Arthur Adams(Batman/Fantastic Four), Amy Chu(Rick and Morty/KISS/Wonder Woman), and Lee Kohse(Star Wars/Speed Racer) and many others. This is just a short list of the number of guests that will be available for autographs pictures and more.

A large array of artists, exhibitors and special guests will once again be in attendance at StocktonCon. More than 200 exhibitors and artist booths will be a part of the fun – with fans in attendance able to find lost treasures, comic books, action figures, Funko pops and much more.
