No man alive should be allowed to wield such dangerous power.

Madness descends on April 15th to the 17th, as this year’s Midwest Media Expo will be in full swing in Dearborn, Michigan! Founded a couple of years ago by the good folks who also founded Youmacon in Detroit, this coming MWME will be filled to the brim with live panels, fun events, cosplayers, artists and vendors, and of course, special guests, with more information likely to be announced towards the date of the con itself.

If you’re in the area and looking for a really, really good reason to register for the convention, perhaps this fun little event will tickle your fancy.

Among the guests attending the Midwest Media Expo are voice actors Jon St. John and Kyle Hebert. Some of you might remember St. John for his vocal talents as Duke Nukem in his titular gaming series, Execk from Chris Niosi’s animated webseries TOME: Terrain of Magical Expertise, and our personal favourite Big the Cat from Sonic Adventure until Sonic Heroes. As for Hebert, he lent his voice to familiar faces such as Son Gohan from Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball, Ryu from Capcom’s Street Fighter games, and, since Sonic Colours for the Nintendo DS, Big the Cat!

So what happens when you book both voice artists for the same convention? Only the stuff of legend.

The “Battle of the Bigs” event will pit both big men with their stupid Big voices against each other in a battle of wits. If it’s truly as incredible as it sounds, this once-in-a-lifetime event between Big the Cats is not something to be missed!

That said, clear up your calendars for April and register for your own passes to the Midwest Media Expo today!

      1. My first choice would either be the Honest Trailers guy or Tom Kenny, since his voice was what I heard when I was making this. X)””

  5. Hah! I love it.

    I wonder how much they paid John St. John to show up considering his hatred for Big the Cat. XD
