O Comic Con is pleased to welcome Mat Fraser to our 2017 event. To stay abreast of announcements about guest autograph schedules and Q&A sessions, we encourage you to keep up with us via our newsletter or social media accounts.  View all 2017 guests here.

Mat Fraser burst forth onto the American consciousness during the fourth season of American Horror Story.  While the series was subtitled Freakshow, the characters that fell under that banner were far from freaks – they were the ones with empathy and heart. Mat Fraser’s character, Paul the Illustrated Seal was a standout. 
Born with thalidomide induced phocomelia, Mat Fraser is not only an actor, he is also a rapper, drummer, martial artist, podcaster, television presenter and writer. He’s a patron of the Graeae Theater Company, has appeared on many BBC radio productions,  and is an outspoken advocate for the disabled.

Guest Coordinator

Melissa Bratcher didn’t know that there was a name for girls who played with Star Wars action figures until she heard it on the playground: Nerd. Since then, she’s embraced her nerddom for all kinds of things: art, the music of Buck Owens, Joss Whedon’s oeuvre, Richard III, chickens. She writes for popshifter.com, specializing in beards, banjos and brass bands, has a lovely and delightful family who are both extremely tolerant of her flights of fancy, and is ridiculously excited to work for O ComicCon, combining her loves of nerddom and emailing strangers to ask for things.
