The ASB Showgrounds will be overrun with gamers, sci-fi nuts and comic fans of all ages (with a special discounted preview day on the Friday), as the Armageddon Expo rolls into town on its annual pilgrimage.

Festival director Bill Geradts says “This year’s Armageddon Expo is the biggest yet, with huge names from cult TV series and voice artists from blockbuster movies such as Transformers and Tron, it’s going to be a very exciting 4 days.”

This year’s show features more entertainment, mind-altering exhibits and famous people that you can poke an All Spark at, with comics, anime, paintball, amusement rides, live wrestling, international TV and movie celebrities and movie stars, comic and voice artists, massive interactive gaming stands, the breathtaking Burning Man and much, much more.

The list of celebrity guests includes a dream team selection from some of the most iconic TV series and movies headed by Nicholas Brendon of Buffy the Vampire Slayer fame, joined by his twin brother Kelly Donovan. Making an appearance at Armageddon Expo 2011 is feisty Alaina Huffman from SGU/Smallville, Stargate SG1’s brilliant young astrophysicist Amanda Tapping and Falling Skies star Colin Cunningham, American actor and writer with that winning smile Bruce Boxleitner, also from TRON and Babylon 5, Mark Sheppard, versatile villain from Doctor Who, Supernatural and more, Mark Ryan from the Transformers films & Robin of Sherwood will be there, along with Louise Jameson from the Doctor Who (classic series) just to name a few.

From the heard but not necessarily seen category, internationally renowned voice artists such as Kevin Conroy from the awesomely dark Batman Animated, Justice League, JLU and Dragon Ball Z, and Bleach’s Kyle Hebert will be in attendance to meet and greet at Armageddon Expo 2011.

A huge draw card for Wellington Armageddon and dropping in at Auckland’s Expo is none other than the man behind the voice of Grandpa Max on Ben 10 and Preceptor in the original Transformers cartoon: Paul Eiding. Other voicing celebs include Scott McCord from Bakugan Battle Brawlers, Steve Blum from Wolverine and X-Men, Cowboy Bebop, Transformers Prime and more.

For the more comically-minded, Armageddon Expo 2011 brings you some of the big hitters from the world of graphic print like the writer of Fables, Jack of Fables and JSA, Mr. Bill Willingham. Frank Cho, artist of Mighty Avengers, Shanna the She Devil, Liberty Meadows (writer/artist). Whether it’s manga, anime or cartoons you’re into, you’ll find someone who knows how to draw them at Armageddon. Don’t miss the digital release of NZ biggest comics publisher Beyond Reality Media, with creators, artists and, live in person, The Warden superhero himself!

Armageddon promises to be the ultimate weekend experience with gaming, comics, anime, sci-fi, TV and movie stars, panel discussions, comic and voice artists and cosplay - just a few of the many features taking place over the two action-packed days. Popular with the masses, the expo attracts a crowd of thousands from families to gamers, the young, the old and the ugly; after all, the expo is a great mix of pulp culture at its finest.
