Feature ACE Panel Schedule Our comprehensive guide to the Albuquerque Comic Expo–panels, prizes and super-powered personas galore.
Feature Speak Well, He Can An interview with the voice of Yoda Tom Kane can do a good evil robot. He gets a lot of computer voices thrown his way. Stanley Kubrick even picked him to be the new HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey just before Kubrick died. Kane's also done a ton of animation voicings, including Professor Utonium in “The Powerpuff Girls” and Monkey Fist on “Kim Possible.” He was both Tony Stark and Ultron in the "Iron Man" cartoons, so he got to fight himself.
Feature La Forge to Bridge An interview with LeVar Burton As an actor, he's hit the trifecta. LeVar Burton has managed to be cast in three roles that played a major part in American culture: the young Kunta Kinte in Roots , himself as the host of "Reading Rainbow" and Geordi La Forge in "Star Trek: The Next Generation."
