Here’s a friendly reminder that come this Saturday Dallas Comic Con will be your one stop shop for all things geek speak.
Featured guests will include:
The very first US autograph appearance of Twilight New Moon’s biggest baddie, 6’ 8” tall Daniel Cudmore
TV’s Batman star and Mayor of Quahog Adam West
Actor Alan Harris, aka Bossk the bounty hunter, who had roles in all three original trilogy Star Wars movies
Tickets are available starting at $10 for daily, individual general admission to full all access weekend passes at $75 - children 5 and under are free with an adult paid admission.
Comic guests include, but are so NOT limited to:
Pflugerville, Texan, Matt Sturges, the scribe behind House Of Mystery, Jack of Fables, Fables, Blue Beetle and more.
And people, if you insist on dressing up, dress up as something blatantly pop culturish or better yet, if you’re a gal and totally, smokin’ hawt, dress up as Venture Bros. Doctor Girlfriend, ‘scuse me, Dr. Mrs. The Monarch or Molotov Cocktease. I’m tired of seeing these wild-west/sci-fi/steampunk costumes people are wearing just because they know they can get away with it.
Just a friendly reminder that this weekend is the Dallas Comic Con (in Richardson)! The Con will run on Saturday from 11am-6pm and Sunday 12noon-4pm. Tickets are available at the show for $10, children 12 and under are free. 2-day Speed-passes are also available which would get you into both days and first access to the actors and into the Q&A room for $20.
Comic guests include: J Scott Campbell- creator and artist for Danger Girl and artist for Gen 13 along with Steve Niles- creator and writer of 30 Days of Night and many more. Other guests include: Barry Bostwick- The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Spin City, Law & Order: SVU – plus many more.
Get out there early to get your tickets and meet some of your comic industry favorites and have Dean Stockwell sign your copy of Blue Velvet (or Quantum Leap season 3). And, if you insist on dressing up, dress up as something blatantly pop culturish. I’m tired of seeing these costumes of wild-west/sci-fi people are wearing just because they know they can get away with it. Also in DCC related news, David Hopkins (writer of Karma Inc, Emily Edison and also a DCC guest this year) gives his guide to a happy convention experience – a must read for anyone thinking of attending.
