Former Go-Go Jane Wiedlin to appear at Planet ComiCon
While comic conventions usually feature an odd guest or two — usually a Playmate or someone else known more for removing their clothes than appearing in genre fare — Kansas City’s Planet ComiCon will play host to their first rock ‘n’ roll guest next month.
Former Go-Go Jane Wiedlin will be at the con signing autographs and speaking with fans during the weekend of March 27 and 28. The event runs 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 27, and from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 28. Admission is $15 for a weekend pass. You can purchase them in advance for $12 at the Planet ComiCon website, and at area comic shops.
Technically, Wiedlin does have a bit of a connection to the sci-fi/comic/fantasy genre triptych, as she appeared in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home. Granted, it was for all of about 6 seconds, but it counts. I’m sure she’ll be just as thrilled to sign your copy of that as she will be to sign your vinyl copy of Beauty and the Beat. I’d bring extra cash, though. It seems that the “special guests” always ask for money above and beyond the price of admission. Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) was asking $20 a few years back.
