NOVI, Mich. (WWJ) -- The Fonz is coming to metro Detroit.

Henry Winkler, star of the 1970s sitcom "Happy Days," will attend this year's Motor City Comic Con at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi this May.

Motor City Comic Con officials announced Monday that Winkler, who played Arthur "Fonzie" Fonzarelli on the show, will be at the convention May 17-19. He will be available for autographs ($40) and professional photo ops ($60), according to a press release.

Winkler, who won two Golden Globes and three Emmy nominations for his role as Fonzie, just recently won his first Primetime Emmy Award in the category Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. He also was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his role on The Practice and has won two Daytime Emmy Awards.

The event is celebrating its 30th year in May and is expected to be the biggest convention in the event's history.

The Suburban Collection Showplace recently expanded and now has 180,000 square feet of space, which Motor City Comic Con officials say has allowed them to add more events, exhibitors, media guests and comic guests as well as plans to introduce new concepts.

Tickets are on pre-sale on the Motor City Comic Con website.
