This week's state of the union begins on a somber note as we have recently been informed that voice actor Erik Bauersfeld passed away yesterday. We are of course saddened for his family and friends as well as the many KCCC attendees who were looking forward to his appearance this August. By all accounts, he was a very kind gentleman, who never tired of delivering his signature line "It's a trap!" for his fans.
May the Force be with you, Erik. Rest in peace.
On a lighter note, several announcements should be forthcoming in the next few days. Special hotel pricing will be made available both for folks coming in from out of town and those individuals who'd like to be within walking distance of the show and its afterparties.
We're also expecting to have our application for game masters up and running soon. If you're planning on attending KCCC 2016 and you'd like to run a board game or role playing game, we'll give you your shot.
For those of you who have a particular affinity for the third word in our name, get ready for some serious comic guest announcements. We're committed to bringing in new names to the area who will make you remember exactly why you love comic books so much.
Below are a few links to help you get involved in what promises to be an amazing show.
