Bernadin returning to FanCon

He said such nice things to the world about Prince George, it was almost mandatory for Marc Bernardin to be invited back to Northern FanCon.

Bernardin - a writer of comic books, screen scripts and magazine articles for the biggest titles in those industries - was the co-host of Fatman Beyond, the global podcast he does with filmmaker Kevin Smith. It was broadcast live off the floor of CN Centre last year, giving the world an unprecedented view of Prince George and its pop-culture festival.

"We are excited to see Marc return and look forward to him connecting with fans plus hosting another stellar workshop at Northern FanCon 2019," said event organizer Norm Coyne who said Bernardin's encore was "by popular demand."

With so many aspiring writers in all the genres in which he is proficient, there is a large student base for Bernardin's workshops.

He is a craftsman of the language and a wizard of conjuring the imagination onto the page.

He's also a master of conversation. He brought a lot of fun and interaction to the participants at last year's Northern FanCon.

"Marc Bernardin is a man who wears many hats, and is no stranger to the world of pop culture and comic cons," said Coyne.

"He has moderated panels at San Diego Comic-Con International, appeared in pop culture video documentaries and made many personal appearances at comic cons and colleges alongside his pal filmmaker Kevin Smith as part of the Fatman Beyond podcast."

Bernardin also broadcasts another franchise-based podcast. He and Tricia Helfer co-host the Battlestar Galacticast internet show. She, too, was a popular guest at last year's Prince George fan convention.

Northern FanCon 2019 happens May 3-5 at CN Centre and the Kin Centres.

Tickets are on sale now via the event's website and Facebook page.
