Amazing Comic Con Aloha has traditionally been known for bringing the best comic book talent and Top Media Guests to Hawaii. This has been true with folks like Stan Lee and William Shatner serving as previous headline guests. Over the last several outings however Amazing Comic Con Aloha has expanded the crossover of pop culture to include more of the top names in Anime and Gaming. We believe our pop culture events should be inclusive, and provide something for everyone!
At next week’s show in Honolulu, here are some of the great people you will be able to meet, along with some of the cool events inside of the Amazing Comic Con Aloha in Hawaii!
MY HERO ACADEMIA
Funimation and VIZ booths rocked the floor at San Diego Comic Con just a few short weeks ago, and now the excitement comes to the fans of Hawaii! JUSTIN BRINER will be featured at the event- he voices the lead character DEKU. Look for the MHA Panel on SUNDAY August 26 at 11am.
Joining Justin at this panel will be a another favorite from the world of Anime- MIKE MCFARLAND.
