I am very excited about the Silicon Valley Comic Con in March; it will have some amazing panels and also a special Back to the Future Reunion. If you are an 80’s baby like me then you would be epically excited that Michael J. Fox was confirmed today to be at the Back to the Future Reunion with Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson.
Back to the Future is timeless; so many great lines from that movie that are still used today! I remember my brother would not stop saying “Great Scott” after he saw the movie but all I remember is where do I get one of those Hover Boards and that jacket?
Oddly recently announced DeLorean announced that it plans to turn out around 300 units of the DMC-12, beginning in 2017 starting under $100,000.00.
At last years SXSW I got to see one of the DeLorean replicas and I always wanted one till I saw it in person and realized it’s not as cool as it looked in the movie (what ever does?).

Other celebrities to attend Comic include: Jon Heder, Sean Astin, Stan Lee, and many many more!

Silicon Valley Comic Con (SVCC), Steve Wozniak’s pop culture and technology expo, today revealed that Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson will reunite for a must-attend panel, photo ops and special signings at a “Back to the Future” Premiere Event during the show. The inaugural Silicon Valley Comic Con will be hosted at the San Jose Convention Center in San Jose, CA the weekend of March 18-20, 2016.
This will mark Michael J. Fox’s first appearance at a North American Comic Con. It will also be the first time Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson have appeared together for fan photo-ops at a comic con type event. The Back to the Future event will take place Saturday, March 19 and include a panel with Fox, Lloyd and Thompson.
“I wanted to be a part of Silicon Valley Comic Con because for me this show highlights what the Valley has meant to science, technology and innovation and encapsulates what Back To The Future is about and much of what seems to be such a strong bond for many fans of the film and why it still lives in their imaginations,” said Christopher Lloyd. “I am really looking forward to meeting the fans at Silicon Valley Comic Con.”
“If my calculations are correct, when Silicon Valley Comic Con hits full speed… you’re going to see some serious s**t,” said Steve Wozniak.
