The Con rises: A preview of the Grand Rapids Comic-Con

The Colligate columnist Jamie Miller faces off with a Pyramid head cosplayer at the April 2021 Grand Rapids Comic-Con

Greetings Nighlighters, it is I “the ever eager, eagle-eyed and always eccentric editor” Jamie Miller here yet again. Now friends as you know whenever a Comic-Con is on the horizon I’m right there and ready to cover it. And this will be no exception.

Grand Rapids Comic-Con will run from Nov. 11-13,  at the DeVos Place.

This con is already shaping up to be interesting. Among the guests  are Austin St. John, aka the original red Power Ranger, Jason Lee Scott, Grey DeLisle-Griffin known for voices in numerous TV shows and movies namely Princess Azula in “Avatar: The Last Airbender” and Daphne Blake with numerous entries in the “Scooby Doo” franchise. The con will also feature a visit from Victoria Price, daughter of legendary actor Vincent Price and author of his biography. Kane Hodder, known for playing Jason Voorhees in four of the films in the “Friday the 13th” series, will also be there with many of the other men who played the iconic horror villain. 

As for event organizer, Mark Hodges, he is pumped for another guest.

Personally, I don’t get too hob nob much with any guest, as I am running around taking care of the fan base – sorta the reality of the job,” Hodges said. ‘I do want to meet Victoria Price though as I am a major old movie fan.” 

Price is the daughter of movie legend Vincent Price. So all in all, this is shaping up to be one interesting con. 

The show will run from noon to 7 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m.. to 7 p.m.. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Three-day tickets are $65. Tickets for only Friday are $27, Saturday tickets are $37 and Sunday tickets are $27. Tickets are available at the DeVos Place Box Office or online.  Nightlighters, stay tuned for my coverage of this event.
