Making his first appearance at Jet City Comic Show and first appearance in Washington State since 1999, we're incredibly happy to announce actor Richard Hatch.

Richard Hatch is best remembered for his portrayal of "Apollo" on the series, Battlestar Galactica – who’s character was best friends with our other celeb guest Dirk Benedict’s “Starbuck”. Richard also had a recurring role on the re-launch of Battlestar Galactica as “Zarek”, he was the only actor from the original to appear on the remake.

Richard Hatch was studying classical piano at the age of eight, and knew he wanted to carve out a career as a performer before he reached his teens. After attending Harbor College in San Pedro, he joined a Los Angeles repertory company with which he traveled to New York City in 1967. He performed in the plays "Song of Walt Whitman", "Young Rebels" and a production called "Exercise", which Richard directed. Richard was cast as the original "Philip Brent" in the soap All My Children in 1970. He later played "Inspector Dan Robbins" on the television series The Streets of San Francisco (1972).

More recently Hatch appeared in the web series The Silicon Assassin Project. In 2013, he ventured into the Steampunk genre, starring in the short film Cowboys & Engines alongside Malcolm McDowell and Walter Koenig. In 2014 he played the Klingon Commander Kharn in the Star Trek fan film Prelude To Axanar and will appear in the subsequent fan production Star Trek: Axanar in 2015.

We are excited to announce that Megan Kelso, will make her first appearance to Jet City Comics show this year!

Among many other publications, Kelso had a story (which she co-created with Ron Rege) in SPX 2004.

She received two Ignatz Awards in 2002, for Outstanding Artist (for Artichoke Tales #1 and her story in Non #5) and Outstanding Minicomic (for Artichoke Tales #1).

Peter BaggeBy common consensus, Peter Bagge is the funniest cartoonist of his generation, and is probably best known for the ’90s comic book series Hate, which followed the exploits of the slacker ne’er-do-well Buddy Bradley (and managed to show probably the truest representation of Seattle during the “grunge” boom and bust). Jet city comic show is excited to welcome Peter to this year's show!

Bagge has had his works published in MAD Magazine, as well as working for many comic book publishers such as Fantagraphics Books Inc., Vertigo Comics and Dark Horse Comics.

Dirk BenedictWe’re excited to announce our first media guest for this years show, actor Dirk Benedict!

 

Dirk is a probably best known for playing ”Templeton ‘Faceman’ Peck” on the 80’s television hit the A-Team in addition to playing “Starbuck” in the original Battlestar Galactica series. 

 

He’s also had guest roles on  Charle’s Angels, The Love Boat, Baywatch and The Commish as well as a role in the 1973 cult horror film Sssssss.

 

Dirk also has some Northwest roots. He was born and raised in nearby Montana (still lives there today) and attended college in Walla Walla, WA as well as performing in the repertory theatre in Seattle before moving onto Hollywood.
