By Nolan P. Smith

(Victor Valley)– This weekend, the sunny city of Long Beach will once again bring together a plethora of artists, writers, movie stars, cosplayers, fans and more as the Long Beach Comic Con smashes its way into So Cal.

One of the major draws this weekend as to be part of the key cast from the cult classic TV series, Firefly. The show, created by Joss Whedon (Avengers), has been a staple in the science fiction world since it’s debut, and even spawned a theatrical sequel with Serenity. Actors to be in attendance include Adam Baldwin, Jewel Staite, Sean Maher and Summer Glau.
