Astronomicon Brings Your Favorite Pop Culture Icons to Metro Detroit

This weekend, some of your favorite movie stars and pop culture icons will be in town for Astronomicon! Now in its second year, the event is sort of similar to a comic convention, but way cooler. Last year, even big names like Jason Mewes of Jay and Silent Bob were at the event, and this time around the folks at Astronomicon have another awesome lineup. Some of the stars that will be at this year's convention include Bam Margera, Dee Snider of Twisted Sister, Edward Furlong (Terminator 2, American History X, Detroit Rock City), Linda Blair (The Exorcist), Sid Haig (House of 1,000 Corpses, Devil's Rejects), Jake The Snake Roberts, and many more. You can check out the full list of featured guests here.

In addition to the great guests, there is a ton of other fun to be had too! There will be free play video game rooms, cosplay contests, tattoo contests, free podcasting, Q&A panels, artists, vendors, and more! It is all happening this Friday thru Sunday, February 8th, 9th and 10th, at the Wyndham Garden on Van Dyke in Sterling Heights. Weekend passes for the event are $65, or daily passes are available for $25-$35. You can purchase your tickets in advance here. Keep in mind, many of the special guests at the event do also charge a photo op or autograph fee in addition to admission. So make sure you bring plenty of cash with you! Once you're there, you know you'll want some photos!
