Television personality and Kansas City native Blair Butler will appear at Planet Comicon next spring. Butler is the host of G4â€™s â€œFresh Inkâ€ comic book review segments and substitute host for the networkâ€™s flagship â€œAttack of the Showâ€ program. She has recently started writing comic books, co-creating the upcoming Image Comics series Heart with Kansas City artist Kevin Mellon.
Planet Comicon â€” Kansas Cityâ€™s largest comics and pop culture convention â€” will be held March 24-25, 2012, at the Overland Park International Trade Center in Overland Park, Kansas.
Show promoter Chris Jackson said that he has tried to book Butler in past years, but schedules never worked out. â€œI have seen her on panels and host panels at San Diego Comic Con,â€ Jackson said. â€œI have watched from the crowd in the aisles below the G4 stage as she does live TV from SDCC. I have seen the enormous lines for signing under the sails when she appears with other G4 TV personalities at SDCC. She is great! This is a wonderful opportunity for all of us in Kansas City to meet her.â€
