Like all great reporters, Lois Lane is always on the job getting the scoop on all things Superman–and usually being saved by The Man Of Steel in the process. Make sure to meet Margot Kidder, Lois Lane in the Superman movies from 1978-1987, at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con on November 9-11. Her page for the show is here.

Come on kids, admit it: deep down, you love Howard The Duck. You love the wise quacking antics that he has delivered over the years at Marvel Comics, and stashed away in your collection somewhere is a copy of the infamous 1985 film. Meet the man in the duck suit himself, Tim Rose, at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con and have him sign that VHS tape you have stashed away. Tim’s web page is here.

Cosplay Crusaders at the Grand Rapids Comic-Con

The Cosplay Crusaders is a cosplay charity group that is run by a group of friends that volunteer their time in the community!

We are comprised of superheroes, antiheroes and villains (we put away the grudges to help out a cause) that donate our time to any organization that could benefit from us! We’ve done hospital visits with Mary Free Bed and Helen Devos, we’ve worked with two autism programs (Centria and Hope Network) as well as Purple Community/Van Andel Institute and the Arthritis foundation for their events. We’ve also helped with a school’s 100th day, comic book shop events and sporting events!

We love anything that gets us involved and helps us build the community!
