If you would like to meet Carrie Fisher and Lea Thompson–
you can at the Tampa Bay Comic Con 2015 (July 31-Aug 2)!

Over 100 exhibitors will line the Tampa Convention Center. There will be celebrities to meet like Lea Thompson, Carrie Fisher and Linda Hamilton, along with Comic Creators: Neal Adams, John Bolton and Mark Waid.
Artists like Buzz and Mike Manley will be available for photos and autographs and this year there will be Cosplay guests like Dahlia Thomas and Sexy Mario. Who knew that Tampa Bay Comic Con would be so exciting! Well, I did because there is nothing like Comic Con anywhere. Do not forget to share this on Facebook so you can let all your friends know that the Tampa Bay Comic Con is here!

With over 100 exhibitors, the exhibition hall will be packed with places to hang– like The Game Cave in Ballroom A and Tampa Bay Cinema in Room 23. And do not miss all the fantastical events that will have you rolling like the Designated Debators, where your favorite super heroes will debate issues suggested by the audience and if they lose, they take a shot. They have the Doctor Who Exhibit, which discusses his past, present and future.
There will be a Film Festival Award Ceremony for local filmmakers and even Nerdy Speed Dating, ages 18+ only.
There is even an exhibit called Way of the Sword, which teaches one to sword fight with lessons and even a tournament. I feel my inner gamer coming out.
