Felicia Day is bringing her guild back to Long Beach Comic-Con for another awesome event. This week LBCC announced that The Guild would be expanding its presence at the show. Here are the details from their website:
“Long Beach Comic and Horror Con announced today a full day of entertainment with the hit web series, The Guild. Join creator and star, Felicia Day, cast members Vincent Caso, Amy Okuda and Robin Thorsen along with director Sean Becker and producer Kim Evey on Saturday, October 29 for a walking tour, screening and Q&A panel. Fans will have the chance to meet and interact with the cast, writers and creators of the show and learn how the series comes together and what is planned for the upcoming season. Long Beach Comic and Horror Con will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center October 29 & 30.
“Going back to the spring when we began working with Kim Evey on production of The Guild season 5 at our Comic Expo show, we knew these were a group of people we wanted to spend more time with. The entire cast and crew are incredible, and we are thrilled to have them share so much of the behind-the-scenes with the LBCHC audience.” said Phil Lawrence, co-owner of Long Beach Comic & Horror Con. “It’s going to be unique opportunity for both the hard-core and new fans of The Guild to experience what they’ve lined up.”
We do a lot of conventions during the year but we are especially excited to return to the real home of the fake “MegaGame-O-RamaCon” at Long Beach Comic and Horror Con. It’s going to be a fun reunion and we hope fans can come down and be a part of it with us and many of the extras who, with the help of Phil and Martha and Comic Expo helped us make Season 5 look like the real thing. This is going to be quite a meta-experience for us,” said Kim Evey, Producer, The Guild.
