Astronomicon 3

Mike Pfieffer
Halloween might be 260-plus days away, but that won’t stop Detroit horrorcore rappers Twiztid from celebrating the weird, wacky, and wonderful world of pop culture their way. Entering its third year is Astronomicon, the weekend-long pop culture convention with a celebrity guest roster that has something to offer for just about every fandom. This year will welcome guests including WWE stars Alexa Bliss and Amy Dumas, aka Lita; comic book artist and co-creator of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Kevin Eastman; Anthony Michael Hall (Breakfast Club, Weird Science); Game of Thrones’ villainous Night King, actor Richard Brake; and RJ Mitte, the breakfast-obsessed son to meth-maker Walter White in AMC’s Breaking Bad. The weekend also boasts an artist’s alley, a tattoo contest (and actual tattooing), a pop culture game show, cosplay contests, DIY kids workshop, free play video game room, killer karaoke, and an ’80s-themed concert hosted by Twiztid and Astronomicon’s celeb guests.
