FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

– Joss Whedon Track featured at MegaCon 2006 –

Orlando, FL (February 8, 2006) For the first time in Central Florida, the Joss Whedon Universe (or, ?Whedon?Verse? as the fans call it) will have a strong presence at a comic book convention thanks to one fan, Jason Dorough. ?Usually you can only find them in small gatherings at conventions here and there,? comments panelist Stephanie Pando, ?but now there?s an opportunity for die-hard and casual fans alike to really come together and participate in some wonderful events.? From episode screenings and panels with celebrity guests to a ?Whedon?Verse? costume contest, MegaCon will have it all.” Read More for the rest – MegaCon is February 24th – 26th in Orlando, Florida.


Though he got his start after college as a staff writer for ?Roseanne,? Joss Whedon?s real break-out began with the ?Buffy the Vampire Slayer? television series in 1997. The fan-base grew to astronomical numbers quickly. Born from the success of ?Buffy? Joss started a spin-off series ?Angel? and a new creation ?Firefly.? ?Though ?Firefly? didn?t have as long a run as Whedon?s other work, the show was just as much as a hit with the fans? said MegaCon Whedon?Verse Coordinator Jason Dorough. ?It?s the love and support of the fans that made the film ?Serenity? possible.?
