About Fanboy Expo
As a premier geek culture event, Fanboy Expo is Knoxville’s favorite pop culture con. And for fans, it has a bit of everything to satisfy their nerdy needs.
For this one, the guest list is primed to be an awesome showing. From celebrities to comic creators and wrestlers to musicians, this event seems to have it all. Just a sample of the names is enough to perk your interest. There’s Ralph Macchio from the Karate Kid. We also love that Gene Simmons will be there. But when you add stars like Brent Spiner and Paul Blake, not to mention stars from Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, you’ve to a serious show. Plus, with comic pros like Angel Medina and Tom Nguyen, you’ll get your comic fix at the same time.
The schedule is also filled with special events and photo ops. You’ll have your chance to shake hands with all the celebrities and ask them your most pressing questions. But let’s turn to the cosplay contest. With categories like video games, groups, movie, and more, this con promises to make cosplay a central focus.
Finally, you’ll love hitting all the vendors. What geek doesn’t love browsing all the vendor tables at a con? You’ll find plushies, action figures, posters, t-shirts, and more. You’ll also have your chance to meet even more artists and fan such as yourself. But don’t forget to carry away a ton of comics!
