I had the honor of speaking to Amber Edwards, the secretary of MisCon, about this year's upcoming events and the theme, "Monster Mash-Up". Here is what she said.
The theme this year is Monster Mash-Up it's kind of an idea of monster hunters, classic monsters, mummies, werewolves, ogres, Dungeons and Dragons, vampires, just about anything you can think of.

His Name Really is Dragon
When discussing Dragon Dronet and all that he will be bringing to the event, Amber continued:
Dragon has worked on so many things, like "Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness" to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. He's actually the basis of a video game character from Star Wars the Old Republic, he is Darth Malgus. He has been to MisCon before, but he is coming back again this year and we are pretty excited to have him.
