Denver Comic Con Lands Bruce Campbell
Evil Dead and Burn Notice Star Joins Voice Actor Jim Cummings and Eisner Award-Winning Comic Artist Steve Lieber on 2014 Guest Roster
DENVER – Dec. 18, 2013 – Denver Comic Con and Literary Conference (DCC), a program of Comic Book Classroom (CBC) designed to help promote literacy through pop culture, today announced three more convention guests: Bruce Campbell, Jim Cummings and Steve Lieber.
“Bruce Campbell is a pop-culture icon,” said Christina Angel, Denver Comic Con Director. “Adding the cult film actor behind Evil Dead’s Ash Williams and Burn Notice’s Sam Axe is a fantastic addition to the 2014 Denver Comic Con line-up, and a perfect example of how we’re delivering top-notch guests to our fans.”
DCC will be held at the Colorado Convention Center on June 13 – 15, 2014; tickets are on sale now at DenverComicCon.com.
DCC promotes the arts and literacy at the con through its more than 300 hours of programming and the CBC Kids Corral, an 8,000 sq. ft. area providing educational, youth-based programming and fun activities for our younger attendees and their families. Additionally, the Con is also the major funding program of CBC, which applies its curricula in the community through schools and community organizations such as the Denver Public Library.
Each of these guests will be at the convention to sign autographs, interact with fans and take pictures with attendees. The growing roster of announced guests can be found at the con website. Other recently signed guests include:
