When Big Wow! Comic Fest got folded into Silicon Valley Comic Con last year, some of us who had spent years at the smaller show really had no clue what was about to happen. All we knew was that Steve Wozniak intended to make the world know that Silicon Valley was truly the focal point of nerd culture. And as we start having to worry about Comic-Con in San Diego, I’m not going to lie — when I see announcements like this, I think — yeah, the big stuff this year is happening in San Jose. Woz never does anything half ass.
THIS is the place to be.
From Silicon Valley Comic Con:
The cast of “Back to the Future” – Michael J. Fox (Marty McFly), Christopher Lloyd (Doc Brown) and Lea Thompson (Lorraine Baines) – will reunite for the first time at a North American fan event at Silicon Valley Comic Con.
Reminder: Silicon Valley Comic Con, Steve Wozniak’s pop culture and technology expo, will be held the weekend of March 18-20, 2016 at the San Jose Convention Center. Grab your tickets today!
This will mark Michael J. Fox’s first appearance at a North American Comic Con. It will also be the first time Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson have appeared together for fan photo-ops at a comic con type event. The Back to the Future event will take place Saturday, March 19 and include a panel with Fox, Lloyd and Thompson.
Steve Wozniak says: “If my calculations are correct, when Silicon Valley Comic Con hits full speed… you’re going to see some serious s**t!”
ROADS? WHERE WE’RE GOING, WE DON’T NEED ROADS..
