With all the conventions this year either being cancelled or postponed, it is nice to know we now have something to look forward to. Dominic Pace, who played the bounty hunter Gekko in "The Mandalorian" will be coming to local comic shops this July as part of "Gekko's Support Small Business Bounty Hunter Tour". Of course, to quote from Mr. Pace's Twitter feed, this tour "will be abiding by state laws and keeping everyone safe as well as working with the 501st Legion, Mandalorian Mercs, and the Rebel Base Card for local causes." You may have heard of him from some of the podcasts he's done interviews for, he also is on Cameo if you need or would like him to send a personalized "shout out" to someone. While on the tour, he will have some cool collector coins for sale, along with replicas of his gauntlet that he can autograph. Image Image

I've had the pleasure to chat online with Mr. Pace a little bit and he is one of the nicest, most genuine people you could ever hope to meet, and I absolutely can't wait to finally meet him in person. In fact, I'm getting a tattoo done of Gekko (hopefully at the end of this month if Illinois allows places like my tattoo shop to finally re-open), that I really would like him to sign so I can then have his signature tattooed right alongside the image. I can already see meeting him as being one of, if not THE highlight of 2020 for me. Image Image

Now I do not believe he is going to be in season 2 of the show, but considering how much his fanbase is growing, we fans are hoping he will make at least one, if not numerous appearances in season 3. If he's going to be at a comic shop in your area, I highly recommend you make the time to go and meet him, you'll come out as big of a fan of him as I am... almost.
