Meet man behind Spidey, Hermey the Elf at Christmas Comic Con 3: FIRST-EVER APPEARANCE!

It is truly my honor to announce our very special guest of honor at Christmas Comic Con 3 (coming Sunday, Dec. 7th to Windsor, ON's St. Clair Centre for the Arts) – a man whose work continues to entertain today and will no doubt do so for generations to comeMr. Paul Soles. Not only the voice behind the classic 1967-1970 animated Spider-Man (and Peter Parker!) but so much more, including the 1964 classic Rankin-Bass Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer special’s loveable Hermey the Elf (who wanted nothing more than to be a dentist). 

Now 84-years-young, the Toronto-born Mr. Soles is making his FIRST-EVER APPEARANCE at ANY comic con, and we couldn't be MORE THRILLED that he chose our Christmas Comic Con 3 to do so! 

With a career stretching back to 1960, Soles has voiced a number of other popular animated characters, including Rick Jones (Hulk, Captain America – 1966); Happy Hogan (Iron Man – 1966); Benny and Freddy (The Smoky Bear Show – 1969); Marcus (Rocket Robin Hood – 1966); in addition to appearing on-screen in the 2008 feature film, The Incredible Hulk, and, various TV series such as Alfred Hitchcock Presents; Kung Fu: The Legend Continues and Terminal City (winning the 2005 GEMINI Award for best performance by an actor in a featured supporting role, dramatic series). He also co-hosted the long-running CBC public affairs show Take 30 for 18 seasons. 

Mr. Soles will appear for a limited-time at Christmas Comic Con 3, with times TBA. Please welcome Mr. Paul Soles!
