HTX Spots: Houston Comicpalooza

This past weekend was the 10th annual Comicpalooza event in Houston–the largest annual, multi-genre, comic book, science fiction, anime, gaming, and pop culture convention in the Southern United States! It coincided with Memorial Day Weekend and the turnout was amazing! Guest speakers for panels ranged from Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming, The Avengers: Infinity War), Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones, Veronica Mars), to John Cusack (Sixteen Candles, High Fidelity)!

Comicpalooza is a 3-day event–similar to Comic-Con–which hosts activities from Friday to Sunday and is held at the George R. Brown Convention Center.

This is just a sample of one of the many comic book vendors at Comicpalooza

In addition to having a huge amount and variety of comic books for fans to purchase, there were speaking panels from the guest speakers and autograph / photo-ops!


Inside the George R. Brown Convention Center, guests will find plenty of things to do and sights to see from their favorite television shows and movies.


Comicpalooza is fun for the entire family and for fans of all ages, so feel free to bring other family members and kids!


One of the many great activities available for guests this year was an arena for LIGHTSABER DUEL with other Star Wars fans!


(Lightsaber not included, but the vendors at Comicpalooza have you covered.)


As with any convention, cosplay is not only accepted, it’s encouraged!
