Prolific comic book artists star at Houston’s latest pop culture convention


This week, comic book and pop culture fans from across the country will gather for Comicpalooza at the George R. Brown Convention Center, the annual extravaganza.

Traditionally, this has been the main draw for comic / anime / pop culture fans when it comes to local conventions.

But now Houston fans can rejoice, as a new scam will debut this fall. The aptly named Bayou City Comic Con will launch its first three-day party from November 19-21, organizers said.

Dubbing himself the “little con who could,” the new event promises celebrity guests, local artists and exhibitors at the Westin Galleria Houston Hotel and Convention Center (5060 W. Alabama St.). The family event (kids love their anime) will also be broadcast live, according to a press release.

A full lineup announcement is still underway, but so far attendees can expect:

  • Bob hall: cartoonist, writer, playwright, director and American co-creator of the West Coast Avengers for Marvel Comics. He worked on Armed and dangerous and Shadow Man, which he both designed and wrote for Valiant Comics.
  • Chad Hardin: DC Comics (Harley quinn, Wonder woman, Zatanna, Military leader), Wonder (Spider-Man Web, Antivenom), Black Horse (Dragon age) and Boom Studios (Farscsape, Traveler).
  • Philo Barnhart: Cinema host whose work appears in Star Trek: the movie; animator and designer for Disney’s Little Mermaid, The secret of NIMH, and much more.
  • Charles Moisant: Creative Director at Silver Phoenix Publishing, Writer, Creator and Artist, Creator of Educational Comics and Creator of Horror Comics.

The con is also open to those who wish to be a part of the show, via the Artist Alley, vendor and exhibitor spots, and a fan and cosplay table.

Tickets for each day are limited and range from $ 20 to $ 60 with a $ 175 VIP weekend pass that includes frontline privileges and a VIP bag. For more information, visit the official website.
