Hail Atlanti-Con! Fantastic Forum Coming Soon to Grenfell

Allison Crowe is super-delighted to join the line-up of Atlanti-Con 2 – a fabulous convention for fans of Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming, Comics and Anime that takes place September 28 and 29, 2013 at Grenfell Campus, MUN in lovely Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada.

“Our ever growing list of awesome just got longer!!!!!” says Jeff Keeping, Co-Executive Director of Atlanti-Con, in announcing: “So this past Summer, Man of Steel made a killing at the box office and we are lucky to be joined by singer / songwriter ALLISON CROWE who appeared in the film with Henry Cavill (Kal-El / Clark Kent / Superman)!!”  +

Crowe’s singular vocal, musical and song-writing powers are known all over this planet. Something more of her secret identity is a passion for gaming – a theme, perhaps, for a rock opera (esp. considering her 100% achievement in Oblivion). Stepping into a phone-booth recently, following the red carpet premiere of the Zack Snyder-directed epic, “Man of Steel”, in NYC, Crowe revealed to Superman Homepage’s Steve Younis:

“I also play a lot of video games. (I played World of Warcraft for years - (Human Warlock, for what it's worth) and Elder Scrolls Skyrim and Oblivion... I love the Sims games... I just finished playing through all the Mass Effect series (SO AMAZING... I was really sad when it was over) ... also Bioshock Infinite is awesome as is the new Tomb Raider - I hope to start playing the Last of Us soon!)”

(btw, Henry Cavill, Superman for this generation, is an avid gamer as noted in various articles eg. )

Atlanti-Con 2 guests already announced include: actor Robert Maillet (“300” – another Zack Snyder blockbuster, “The Immortals”, “Sherlock Holmes”, Guillermo del Toro’s just-released “Pacific Rim”, and more); Modern Fantasy Art Muse, and Cosplayer, Drakaina; raconteur Fat Apollo (of “Geeks Vs. Nerds” comedy show); artist / illustrator Kevin Kendall; authors Krista D. Ball, Darren Hann, and Charles O’Keefe; plus the cast of “Star Trek Reliant” – the fan-made YouTube web-series, created in St. John’s, NL.
(Brains and brawn aplenty in this Atlantic line-up joins a plenitude of pulchritude piled on with a pair of Haligonians in attendance. Drakaina’s role as international model and muse will meet with another legend – the too-sexy-for-his-gloves Fat Apollo – who, in a readers’ poll in Coast magazine, ended the seven-year reign of actress Ellen Page as “Sexiest Person in Halifax”.)

Feel like letting my geek flag fly...
