The official announcement also teased surprises, including an exclusive Simpsons collectible item for everyone in attendance.
In addition, costumed characters of Bart, Lisa, and the rest of The Simpsons family will appear on the convention floor and fans will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to meet Matt Groening and the rest of the panelists during a one-hour autograph signing session of an exclusive The Simpsons mini-poster right after the panel.
