Alaina Huffman, Boba Fett Jeremy Bulloch among stars at Kansas City-area Planet Comicon
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — Bounty hunters, droids and space explorers descended on Planet Comicon last weekend for the annual comics and sci-fi show.
Thousands of fans attended the gathering, which headlined Jeremy Bulloch, the British actor who played bounty hunter Boba Fett in “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi.”
Alaina Huffman of “Stargate Universe” and “Smallville” appeared at the convention, and spoke to fans at a panel.
Huffman plays Tamara Johansen in the series, which is nearing its end, but says she didn’t get any souvenirs from the set.
“They have not struck our set. They really would like to finish up with a movie, so all of our sets are still standing,” she said.
A fan asked if she would like the Stargate itself, which allows rapid transport to Stargates at distant locations.
“I want two of them,” she said, laughing. “You can’t go anywhere with one. … Our gate is really spectacular … it really lights up. It really makes that loud, obnoxious noise.”
The convention itself was filled with lights and noise, as fans dueled with light sabers and crowded dealer booths looking for bargains.
Writers and artists from Marvel Comics, DC Comics and other publishers converged, with more than 40 creators in attendance. Writer/artist Phil Hester (“Firebreather”), who writes “Wonder Woman” for DC Comics, said he’s been attending Planet Comicon for nearly two decades.
