New, improved schedule

Our schedule is now hosted at sched.org. This means that you can check if from almost any device, and that if you use the Sched app you will always see the latest schedule, including any last-minute changes. You can also use Sched to find when a particular person will be appearing (click on “Speakers”). It’s pretty slick, and we hope you’ll like it.

Melanie Ehrlich

LI-CON is especially proud to announce Melanie‘s appearance because our “big brother” convention, I-CON, helped her get her start. She’s gone on to tremendous success in both anime (Chizuru in Media Blasters’ first ever in-house dub of Holy Knight) and video games like Lords of Xulima and Genius Defense Force.If you’d like to hear how our convention helped her get started, come to her panels and I’m sure she’ll be glad to explain.

Michael A. Zekas, voice actor

Next to join the lineup for LI-CON 2 is Voice Actor Michael A. Zekas.  Michael has gone on to success in video games–hits such as Technobabylon and Lords of Xulima–as well as anime with the Media Blasters dub of Holy Knight and audio drama in the original work The Amazing Adventures of Action Jack & Obvious Girl.  Come join him for some colorful adventures this weekend.  It’s just as exciting behind the scenes making games and animation as it is enjoying them on a lazy Saturday.
