Kathryn Graham: WhedonCon is Coming to Los Angeles May 18th – 20th!

by Kathryn Graham

Hey fans of Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Firefly, Marvel’s Avengers, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Dollhouse, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, and other fun Whedon-creations like Cabin in the Woods, if you’re in Los Angeles or you can get your butt over here by May 18th – 20th, then WhedonCon is the place for you.

A con run by fans for fans, Fandom Charities Inc. have taken their love of the affectionately named ‘Whedonverse’ and combined it with some truly fantastic humanitarian causes.

In memory of Ron Glass (Shepherd Book on Firefly), part of the proceeds will be going to the Lupus Foundation of America, an organization dedicated to solving the mystery of lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease that adversely affects millions of people throughout the world.

The con also supports a cause dear to Ron Glass’s heart: the Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center. This youth center provides free after school and low-cost summer programs for boys and girls in grades 3 – 12 in order to prep them for college.

Guest of Honor Sean Maher (Simon on Firefly/Serenity) will be joined by James Marsters (Spike on Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, Victor Stein on Runaways), Steven Sears (who produced a ton of my favorite Xena: Warrior Princess episodes), and a host of other talented actors and creators.

It’ll surprise exactly no one that I was a big Buffy fan back in the day, and I’ve been known to roleplay ‘The Man They Call Jayne’ in a tabletop roleplaying game from time to time. I’ll be there filming to help out the other hard-working volunteers.

So join me. Come play at WhedonCon for two worthy causes, and if you see someone with a video camera, say hi. It might be me. Or a demon. It’s probably a demon.

The Official Munchman San Diego Con boycott, which began a decade ago when TV and films booted comics to the far corner of the room is now officially over.
