UPDATE: Nathan Fillion just tweeted this morning that he will be unable to attend DCC, saying,
“Dear Dallas, I hate to do this last minute, but I have to cancel. I’d give my right eye to be there, but it’s swollen and gross. Apologies.”
But hey, Nathan would still like us to keep up the spirit and have a great time this weekend, I’m sure! Read on for what’s happening at DCC this year:
