Re: New Con in Ohio coming in October...
- On the forum boards for Tikicon, they've also announced Lee
Merriwether will also be attending along with Julie Newmar, so that
will make 2 of the 3 60's Catwomen there.
Also just announced Noel Neil (the original tv Lois Lane) will also be
attending the Con. I loved her cameo at the start of Superman Returns
as the old woman that Lex marries to get her money.
This is shaping up to be an interesting con and could be a nice
compliment to the Pittsburgh show coming right 6 months after the last
Pittsburgh show and 6 months before the next one giving us two decent
Cons in the area.
