Omega Expo – The Comic Con With No Names

60307041

Omega Expo is a brand new comic convention with a great list of names. Tom Hiddelston, Ryan Reynolds, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padelecki from Supernatural, and comic book stars Rob Liefeld and Jim Lee…

Tom Hiddelston and Ryan Reynolds aren't going.

And according to their agent Adam Malin, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padelecki aren't either,

Especially because they are at the Supernatural Official Convention arranged by their representatives in Denver instead. But these folk won't be put off just because the guests they are confirming aren't attending.

After all, they've definitely got the venue and that's the most important thing when…

As for the comic book guests,

And I have confirmed that Jim Lee has never heard if it either.

Obviously a few people were upset, Omega Expo is now stating,

Omega Expo has terminated all business connections with Jeffrey Scott Smith.

Smith, who represented himself as "Scott Smith" mismanaged talent bookings, and fabricated information both about Omega Expo and his background.

Omega Expo was not aware of Smith's background and does not take the crimes of promoting prostitution or libel lightly and acted swiftly as soon as they became aware.

Because of these developments some of the talent that were originally scheduled to appear at Omega Expo have canceled their appearances and Omega Expo offers their sincere apologies to these individuals.

Omega Expo has issued full refunds to any individuals who may be uncomfortable with these developments and would like to assure the public that they are still dedicated to bringing a quality show to Houston on Nov. 6-8, 2015.

Wherever it may be. It's difficult for the talent to cancel their appearances when they were never actually asked. Though they still have listings up with all those names.

Omega… that means "the end" doesn't it?
