POWERHOUSE COMIC CON 2022

POWERHOUSE COMIC CON 2022 continued the Bay Area tradition of bringing the pop culture community together for its sixth year of fun and memories. Every year friends and family gather, and every year new friends and faces come together with familiar faces of those who have come to Powerhouse Comic Con since 2017. Every year Powerhouse Comic Con gets better and better and 2022 brought down the house with great special guests, artists, video games, movies, games, and the best vendors, and exhibitors from all over the west coast. Once you attend Powerhouse Comic Con you become part of a large family. Alameda County Fairgrounds in Pleasanton, California has served as the host venue from the very start, and they enjoy Powerhouse Comic Con as much as the local community. The family-friendly environment gives everyone an opportunity to have unimaginable fun. What makes Powerhouse Comic Con special is that it is organized by fans who love pop culture, and not a corporate conglomerate. Powerhouse Comic Con supports the entire community.

HEADLINERS 2022

Powerhouse Comic Con has a tradition of bringing classic superheroes that are iconic. Powerhouse Comic Con has brought only the best memorable retro characters in rare appearances. Actor Reb Brown who played Captain America in the television movies in the late 1970s treated fans to photos, and autographs that will be cherished. This was the last time he appeared in California and it was a historical moment. Powerhouse Comic Con always reminds attendees to come out and see the special guests because it is most likely they will never appear again. Reb Brown's last appearance in California gave the fans a very special memorable moment. Marta Kristen from the iconic television science fiction television show "Lost in Space (1965-1968)" joined Reb Brown with a special appearance by Robot Model- B-9. Rounding out the headliners was Jessie Flowers who was the voice actress for Toph in the animated series "Avatar: The Last Airbender (2005-2008)."
