SiliCon with Adam Savage announced their initial guest list several weeks ago. Dirk Benedict, Starbuck from the 1970s “Battlestar Galactica,” was the most notable guest. Most of the other guests were the usual suspects who showed up for Silicon Valley Comic Con. A new guest got added the next day.

When Silicon Valley Comic Con 2019 ended last August, no announcements were made for the 2020 show dates. That was unusual since previous shows had the dates for the next show in advance. The only potential date we had for the last six months was a picture posted on Friends of Comic Cons that listed October 16 to 18, 2020 from inside the 2019 program guide. The official website for Silicon Valley Comic Con updated this past Sunday night with the new dates and more announcements forthcoming. But tickets weren’t on sale yet. As of yesterday afternoon, the old website redirected to the new website.
Silicon Valley Comic Con is dead! Long live SiliCon With Adam Savage!
