PMX Events — also known as the organizers of Celebrity Fan Fest — are back at the Freeman Coliseum and Expo Hall for a multi-day fan event of a slightly different kind.

The Thomas J Henry Superhero Car Show & Comic Con will feature meet-and-greets with many beloved celebrities, including Simu Liu (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings), Ewan McGregor (Obi-Wan Kenobi), Hayley Atwell (Captain America) and superstar wrestler Hulk Hogan. Other guests include veteran voice actors Chuck Huber (Dragon Ball Z, My Hero Academia) and Caitlin Glass (Ouran High School Host Club, Fullmetal Alchemist).

As the name suggests, a car show is also part of the draw. Expect to see famous TV and movie vehicles such as the Back to the Future DeLorean time machine, the Stranger Things Hawkins Police Department SUV and even Lightning McQueen from Pixar's Cars film series.

Also look out for the standard convention fare at this event, including an artists' alley, various exhibitors and panels.
