Summer Glau

Emerald City Comicon announced today the addition of Summer Glau (“Firefly,” “The Sarah Connor Chronicles”) ) to their roster of celebrity guests at the March convention in Seattle.

Another guest announced today is comic artist Adi Granov.

Here’s more information from the press release:

Summer Glau began her professional acting career with a stint on the spin-off to Joss Whedon’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” called Angel. This quickly led to a starring role on another Joss Whedon production, “Firefly.” This imaginative sci-fi series centered around the mysterious River Tam portrayed by Glau. Lasting only one season on television, the show developed a quick cult following which resulted in a theatrical film two years later entitled “Serenity.” After recurring roles on other genre series including “The 4400″ and “The Unit,” she ended up landing another starring role on Fox’s “The Sarah Connor Chronicles.” In it, Glau played Cameron, a beautiful but dangerous cyborg from the future. On both “Firefly” and “The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” Glau demonstrated her abilities not only as a capable actress but as an equally capable action star. Other appearances include “The Cape,” “Dollhouse” (also by Whedon), “Alphas” and NBC’s hit show “Chuck” (which co-stars her fellow “Firefly” actor and upcoming ECCC celebrity guest Adam Baldwin). She will next appear in the highly-anticipated feature “Knights of Badassdom.”

Adi Granov is one of the comic industry’s most well-known and respected artists working today. His work has graced the covers, as well as interior pages, of such famous Marvel Comics titles as X-Men, Fantastic Four, The Amazing Spider-Man, Silver Surfer and Thor. It was however his contributions to the Iron Man comics that led director Jon Favreau to enlist him as “Iron Man” suit consultant and conceptual illustrator for the blockbuster feature films starring Robert Downey Jr. Granov has also been busy lending his skills to the eagerly-awaited “Avengers” film. He is currently back on the comics scene, working on the upcoming Astonishing Captain America with writer Andy Diggle.
