      VALLEY FORGE, PENNSYLVANIA - February 8, 2009: The staff of Zenkaikon
      is pleased to announce another guest for its 2009 convention, Robert
      Axelrod. Mr. Axelrod has performed in countless anime and television
      series since 1976, in both live action and voice acting roles.

      About Robert Axelrod:

      Robert Axelrod's career in show business runs the gamut. Born and
      raised in New York City, he did commercials and theater there during
      his childhood and teenage years. Eventually he ended up in the
      Avant-garde theater scene in Soho, acting in a show called Little
      Trips, as well as Off-Broadway in a play called The Destroyers. Around
      this time, Mr. Axelrod left acting for the world of music. He spent
      eight years as a rock musician playing electric bass, and singing in
      folk, rock, and soul bands. Music brought him to Los Angeles, where he
      decided to return to acting, a decision he has never regretted.

      Since moving to L.A., Mr. Axelrod has appeared in over thirty feature
      films including the sci-fi hit remake The Blob, and The Last Shot with
      Alec Baldwin and Matthew Broderick. Television appearances include
      guest star roles on Amazing Stories, Star Trek Voyager, and The Mighty
      Morphin' Power Rangers. He also starred in the Michael Jackson music
      video Stranger in Moscow.

      As a voice actor, Mr. Axelrod has been busy. His most recognizable
      roles are as the voice of Lord Zedd and Finster on The Mighty Morphin'
      Power Rangers. As Lord Zedd, he starred in the first Power Rangers
      feature film, as well as the wildly popular live show that toured the
      country. He was also a regular character on Saban Entertainment's
      Wowser series (Ratso Catso), Journey to the Heart of the World
      (Scarface), and Hallo Spencer (Elmer). In addition, he voiced
      Armadillomon and Wizardmon on Digimon and Microchip, the Punisher's
      sidekick on Spiderman.

      Mr. Axelrod has performed voices in countless anime features including
      Akira, The Big O, Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop, and Brain Scratch.
      He has just finished narrating the mockumentary Safety First: The
      Rise of Women, as well as providing voices in two anime series –
      Gaiking and Danguard Ace.

      About Zenkaikon:

      Zenkaikon was formed by the merger of the anime and sci-fi convention
      Zentrancon and the anime convention Kosaikon, both in the Philadelphia
      area. In 2006, they put on their first event, which was a tremendous
      success. Zenkaikon will return for its fourth installment on November
      7 and 8, 2009, moving into the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge. The
      convention will feature two days of programming with dealers, artists,
      panels, performances, gaming, and more. The Zenkaikon staff wishes to
      thank the many attendees who made the 2008 event such a huge success.
      They hope to see this trend continue in 2009, and are actively
      anticipating expansion with larger performance and panel areas, dealer
      space, and video game rooms.
