'Planet of the Apes' actress a standout at pop culture expo in NIles

Pop culture devotees are fervent about the objects of their enthusiasm — people such as Scott Hendricks, a standup comic from Ashtabula who showed up at this weekend’s Eerie Frequency Film, Toy, Comic, Pop Culture Expo at the Eastwood Expo Center.

Hendricks, 47, who performs at medieval festivals, has long been enamored with the comic books of the past for two reasons.

“A, I love them, and B, they’re an investment,” said Hendricks who owns a museum at his home that features a number of mint-edition classics, including the first comic book appearance of Spiderman published in 1962.

Travis Bowen of Howland, president of Eerie Frequency, his production company, is the driving force behind the pop-culture expo, the first of its type in Niles.

He hopes to attract 500 people to the show by the end of its weekend run. “If we’re successful, we’ll be back next year — absolutely,” Bowen said.

Bowen also has brought in several actors made famous by their association with classic films and television shows. The most notable may be Linda Harrison, who portrayed Nova, a scantily-clad, mute girl rescued from her simian captors by Charlton Heston in the 1968 science-fiction film that spawned a franchise — “Planet of the Apes.”
