Baltimore, MD (June 13, 2013) – Otakon is proud to welcome back Todd Haberkorn. Todd made his first appearance at Otakon back in 2010.
Todd Haberkorn has been on stage, on set, and behind a mic for many years. Not only is Todd an actor in LA, he works as a producer, writer, and director as well. And he's even been an action figure or two.

From there, he went on to voice roles such as Natsu from Fairy Tail, Italy from Hetalia, Ling Yao from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Keroro from Sgt. Frog, Keiskuke from Initial D, Allen Walker from D.Gray-Man, Hikaru Hitachin from Ouran High School Host Club, Death The Kid from Soul Eater, Mass Effect: Paragon Lost, Pokemon and many others. As far as video games go, you'd recognize his voice in Defiance, World of Warcraft, Street Fighter IV, Ghostbusters, Silent Hill: Book of Memories, Borderlands 2, and Rage to name a handful.
Todd appears with support from Studio Nasu, the makers of the game Crisis Heart Brawlers – Clash at Otakon! Otakon 2013 will be held August 9-11 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD.
