Comic Con Palm Springs will return to the Palm Springs Convention Center August 25-27, 2017 and will feature an array of artists and celebrities, fun programming, colorful costumes, and musical entertainment. Headline celebrities will include Stan Lee, Marvel Comics founder, Rob Lefeild, artist/creator of Deadpool and Cable, and actress Dana Gaier (voice of “Edith” in Despicable Me). The three-day event offers a special VIP dinner with Stan Lee, more than 450 merchandise exhibitors and a special concert performance by Lynda Carter. The inaugural event last year attracted more than 15,000 attendees, and this year it is expected to attract nearly 25,000.
The event will start on Friday, August 25. When the doors officially open, attendees will be able to peruse the aisles of exhibitors who will offer rare and vintage collectable materials and interact with dozens of celebrities and comic artists who will offer autographs and pose for photographs.
One of the highlights of the three-day event will be a one-night-only special musical performance by Lynda Carter, known for her role of Wonder Woman in the 1970’s series. Ms. Carter is an accomplished singer who has performed to rave reviews for sold-out crowds around the world. In addition to her lengthy acting career, Ms. Carter has had the distinction of producing and starring in five highly rated network televisions specials and has appeared onstage with Ray Charles, Tom Jones, Kenny Rogers, Bob Hope, George Benson, and Ben Vereen. Her performance on Saturday, August 26 at 8 p.m. will take place in a custom-built intimate theater in the Palm Springs Convention Center. The 90-minute show will feature her distinctive versions of jazz, blues, country and pop songs from her popular “The Other Side of Trouble” tour. This will be the VERY first time the actress and singer will attend and perform at any Comic Con event. Tickets for this special performance range from $35 – $85, with the option to purchase VIP Warrior Princess tickets…
