Also CEO of Hollywood Collector's Gallery - 'HCG' manufacturers and distributes Hollywood movie merchandise, especially hi-end products like movie prop-replicas. HCG has been producing DC Comic and other superhero items, too. Recognizing changes is customer preferences, Mune-san decided to organize his own Hollywood Convention (HollyCon) in 2012, with the first guest from Hollywood being Christopher Lloyd, known as DOC BROWN in Back To The Future.

The 10th HollyCon will have been held August 27 & 28, the two days before Mune-san's talk with us! In his talk, he will explain about the Comic Con event, his collaboration with Steve Wozniak and how the first Tokyo Comic Con came about. The Tokyo Comic Con will be a unique blend of US and Asian pop cultures. Mune-san will of course give us a bit of a sneak peek about which Hollywood stars are coming.
