Event Description

Meadowlark Comic Con is a pop culture and comic convention coming to Ramada Medford Hotel and Convention Center in beautiful Medford, Oregon, May 11th, 2019 (Year Two!).

Meadowlark Comic Con brings fans of pop culture the ultimate fandom experience with a flavor of the community. Comic books, celebrity guests, toys, video games, Cosplay, and more. We also support the Western Meadowlark, the original State bird of Oregon.

This year at Meadowlark Comic Con we celebrate the 40th anniversary of the popular science-fiction adventure television series “Buck Rogers in the 25th Century” with special guest appearance by Gil Gerard who played the title character, and Felix Silla who was responsible for the physical performance of the robot Twiki. Felix Silla is also known for playing Cousin Itt on The Addams Family and one of the Ewoks in Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi.

Star Wars fans will also be able to meet Richard Oldfield who appeared as Rebel fighter pilot Hobbie Klivian (Rogue 4) in The Empire Strikes Back and delivered the line to Carrie Fisher “Two fighters against a Star Destroyer?” An American actor, Richard Oldfield has been living and working in the UK since the 1960s, and his Meadowlark Comic Con appearance is a rare chance for Oregon fans to meet one of the original trilogy Star Wars actors.

Also appearing at Meadowlark Comic Con are actors Rajia Baroudi and Alan Palmer who played the White Alien Ranger and the Black Alien Ranger respectively in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers (1993), and artists Chris Marrinan (Nova, Wonder Woman, Doctor Strange) and Black Shepherd ( Voltron, Pumpkinhead).

The convention is open 10 am to 5 pm and welcomes fans of all ages to come and meet celebrity guests and local artists and creators, shop from comic book and toy vendors, attend panels, play video games, learn LARPing and compete in the cosplay contest for a cash prize. From 6 pm to 1 am fans age 17 and older can rock the floor at Rave Factor! The Official After Party of Meadowlark Comic Con.
