DELOREAN TIME MACHINE
The DeLorean Time Machine as seen in the film “Back to the Future” will be appearing for photo opportunities at Planet Comicon 2013!
Don’t miss your chance to sit inside this faithful, street-legal replica driven by Christopher Lloyd himself!
Built by husband and wife team Oliver and Terry Holler to match the original, this DeLorean features the famous “flux capacitor” and working time circuits. It has toured four countries as an ambassador for the official website, www.bttf.com, appeared in international ad campaigns for Nike, and is used to raise funds and awareness for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.

TRAVELING THE VORTEX LIVE PODCAST
For the first time in its thirteen year history, Planet Comicon 2013 will play host to a live Doctor Who podcast!
Topeka’s Traveling The Vortex podcast will record a live Doctor Who podcast during the convention’s panel programming. Traveling the Vortex is a weekly show that reviews all things Doctor Who, including new and classic episodes, spin-offs, Big Finish audio adventures, and books.
The podcast is hosted by Glenn Bartlett, Shaun Collins, and Keith Miles, and got its start when Glenn and Shaun wanted to introduce someone new to the show and record the results. For more than 100 episodes, the audience has listened as Keith has become a huge fan of the show, even appearing at Planet Comicon 2012 in costume as the Eleventh Doctor. You can listen to episodes at www.travelingthevortex.com.
The time of the panel is still to be determined, so make sure to check the schedule. Traveling the Vortex is very excited to be a part of this year’s con!
Certified Guaranty Company, better known as CGC, will be attending Planet Comicon 2013.
Founded in 2000, CGC is the first independent, impartial, third-party comic book grading service. A proven and respected commitment to integrity, accuracy, consistency and impartiality has made CGC the leader in its field. In fact, in 2007, CGC crossed the million-book mark and has now graded over 2 million comic books.
CGC will not only be taking submissions at the show but witnessing autographs for Signature Series grading. They WILL NOT be doing on-the-spot grading.
For the past three years, the minds behind KantCon have provided gaming opportunities for attendees at Planet Comicon. This year will be no exception. For 2013, we are devoting an entire room to gaming, and we’re asking you–along with KantCon–to help us plan it.
At the link below, you’ll find information on how to not only participate in the playing of a particular game but post one of your own. Bear in mind, signing up for either of these activities DOES NOT constitute entry into Planet Comicon. You MUST purchase a ticket to the show. It’s the only way you’ll be allowed entry.
Many thanks to the gentlemen behind KantCon, and be sure to check out their upcoming show in July. If you have any questions regarding how the gaming room will be run, you’ll find contact information through the link.
