Tickets are now on sale for the inauguralMegaCon Fan Days, a brand-new installment from the producers of MegaCon, the Southeast’s largest annual comic book, anime, gaming and multi-media extravaganza.

Retailers from across the country will sell comics, original artwork, memorabilia, games, toys, t-shirts and much more.

Celebrity guests confirmed to appear on both Saturday and Sunday are:

  • Jason Isaacs (Harry Potter films, Star Wars Rebels)
  • Sean Astin (Lord of the Rings, The Goonies)
  • John Rhys-Davies (Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings)
  • Karen Allen (Indiana Jones)
