Silicon Valley 2018 in San Jose: Who Can You Expect To See?

Silicon Valley Comic Con returns to San Jose which for me personally rings in the official return of spring. Last years event was a blast, if you want to get a reminder of some of the things I experienced you can head here: Silicon Valley 2017

This year will be a bit different, one we have a better idea of what to expect, what worked, what worked in theory and a general layout based on last year. I’m going to be interested in checking out the art galleries, along with Funko Pops and statues, and collectibles. For me, this event has something I haven’t experienced yet, I don’t have any stars or panels of shows that I religiously follow at this event. This does create a unique chance to just wander around, while perhaps wander into a panel and observe it with aneutral mindset, who knows I might stumble on a new favorite without knowing it. So who is going to be there you ask? Let’s go over the stars now!
