Superman Celebration: June 11-14 in Metropolis, IL

By George Nadeau

Looking for something to do this weekend? How about Superman Celebration? The 37th Annual Superman Celebration will be held in Metropolis, Illinois from this Thursday, June 11 through Sunday, June 14. Join thousands of fans, young and old, to celebrate all things Super.

There are loads of activities scheduled throughout the town, including a film festival, a "Fortress of Jello-tude" eating contest, a costume contest, a BMX show, and much, much more.

Of course, there will be special guests from film and TV like Candice "Iris West" Patton from The Flash, and Caity "Sara Lance/Black Canary" Lotz from Arrow.

There will be many comic artist and writer guests, too, including our own Super Friend Benjamin Glendenning. Be sure to visit him in Artist Alley near 8th Street and Market Street to ask him about his comic "Tin Star Tex." If you arrive early enough, ask him for one of the rare Cryptozoic promo cards that he'll be distributing. He'll have promo cards for Fringe Season 5, Penny Dreadful Season 1, Arrow Season 2, and Batman Classic TV.
