Remember MST3K? Wait, you’re over 30, right? Or at least you’re cool enough to hit up their Netflix stash? Well okay. Then check it out: JOEL is coming to Baltimore Comic-Con!
I’ma let the press release take it from here, because I’m kinda psyched and a bit verklempt.
BTW: BCC has posted the Friday, Saturday and Sunday programming. Something for everyone! Plus, dates for the 2015 ‘Con have already been booked, and it’s later in September that go’round. Which just makes things better for folks who live here and usually travel out Labor Day weekend. Woot? Woot. Woot!
