Flashback Weekend runs August 5-7 in Rosemont. As always, I will be "On the Beat" meeting the celebrities, creators and vendors.
Last year, I was a bit surprised to see Randy Couture appearing. I knew he was an MMA legend, but I didn't realize how much acting her has done. When I looked up his career on IMDB, I saw an impressive list. He has had action, drama, superhero and comedy roles.
In the convention world, that all makes him a multi-threat. He appears at sports cons and comic cons. Within the comic con, he has fans from all of his genres. In short, Couture can make a nice living simply doing conventions.
This year, Robert Englund is the headliner, but there are many other great celebrities on the guest list. Go to FlashbackWeekend.com to check the list and get updates.
