Sheesh, pretty much anyone and everyone who's ever been on the flash or arrow will be there. They are pretty much the entire guest list.

There is also one in Chicago in March. There is a 90% chance that I'm going.

IS anyone going? I have recently (December) found myself on a Jason Momoa kick (Red Road (x2), Stargate Atlantis and now halfway through Baywatch Hawaii )... and Amell posted a couple days ago on FB that Momoa was going to be there >_>

FYI if you are looking to go and haven't purchased your tickets yet, you can get a significant price break through living social.

I went to the San Jose Heroes and Villains show a couple months back, it was a very good show. It does get expensive if you're trying to get auto's, but luckily I just really like the show but do not collect things from it, I just wanted to see all the actors in person and hear them talk in the panels (panels have heavy emphasis on fan interaction, it was a lot of Q&A). It was not bad at all getting into every panel, of course the Steven Amell panel was the most packed but even then I got good seats. It wasn't like SDCC where you wait forever and still end up having to squint to see the people in the panels. They empty everyone out after each panel (unless you're VIP) so people can't hog the seats all day. During the Steven Amell panel it was mentioned that Amell helped co-create it, which is why it's very Arrow/CW centric.

Wow Michael J. Fox is going to be signing on Saturday only at Wizard World Philly this year. My guess is that you'like need one of the MJF VIP tiers to score that autograph, starting at $400

Does anyone know what Neal Adams charges for a sketch and if attending would you be willing to have something sketched for me? Thanks!

My experience with Mr. Adams was a great one. He did a few quickies for free, but i did buy the neil adams experience that got me quite a bit of goodies. This was here in San Antonio a few years ago. Best thing to do is try catch him at his table when not busy and he's a very engaging man.

But his prices really varied. I paid 45 dollars for a very nice Daenerys Targaryen but had to come back the next day for it, but mam was it worth it. he also did some old school stuff black whites for free to on the spot.

In all really depends how busy his table is, but man is he great person to to meet.

Looks like you can pre-order autos from the Dallas Comic-Con Store - Products

Stephen Amell is $70, I might be sending in a sketch cover blank to get signed...

I'm really surprised you got anything "for free" from Neil Adams in the last 5 years. He charges for an autograph on anything you didn't buy from him directly, and his "quick black marker profile head sketches" are quite expensive, and often you have to chose from what has been completed in advance. From my own experiences as well as what other members have posted, this is very surprising to read.

If you go to the convention page and click on the Neil Adams link, there is contact information to pre-order convention commissions. I recommend just shooting them a quick email for a price on what you are considering. If you decide to get something done, I could pick it up for you at the Heroes & Villains Fan Fest at the Meadowlands next Sunday.

Got these at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest this weekend. The blizzard caused Saturday's event to be cancelled and a lot of the announced guests cancelled as well which sucked...but Stephen Amell, Robbie Amell, Katrina Law, John Barrowman, and Teddy Sears were already staying near the convention center and just hung out and took pictures with fans in a nearby restaurant all day which was super cool.



Also had Stephen sign my redemption card from Arrow Season 1. He said he had never heard of the Arrow trading cards.



And these awesome sketch cards by David Desbois

Those look great and it is really nice that they hung out with fans.

While I commend the stars for hanging out with the fans, they are getting lazy with their signatures. Hell, Robbie's autograph looks a hell of a lot like Russell Wilson's

Speaking of super cool... did y'all see his chronicles of the weekend on Facebook? Amell/Barrowman singoff karaoke to "The Music of the Night" (which was surprisingly good) and other crazy shenanigans streamed live. Apparently that restaurant opened just for them - and with only two servers who worked the 9ish hours they were there. Rewarded them with a 225% tip.

It's both good and frustrating to know that he hadn't heard of the trading cards... both because that means negotiation began and ended with the agent as we thought.

Starting to get pretty jealous of everyone's collections. I need a different job so I can afford to be on that side of things occasionally

that poster is pretty sweet, but I think I'd rather have one of Stephen Amell's early signatures.

Kinda surprised he still hadn't heard of them. With as many cone as he does. You'd think someone would have said something. I know agents have to sift thru a lot and all so the actor doesn't have to do as much. By I still think I'd want to be informed of every deal or offer. He might take less money on something because he just thinks it's cool or something. Maybe he'll talk to his agent about it now.

This was the same thought I had. With as many conventions as he does how is it possible that no one had asked him about not signing for Season 1? At the very least I would have thought others would have a brought a card for him to autograph (I have a printing plate I'd like to get signed someday). Or on set someone says "My hand hurts from signing all those cards!" and he would have been like "What cards?". I don't know... like has been said hopefully this opens the door for autographs in future products.
