We’ve often commented that Houston, one of the largest cities in the U.S., really doesn’t host many comic conventions. It’s unfortunate considering the number of people who would attend and it was only a matter of time before some other, well known conventions took notice.
Introducing Amazing Houston Comic Con
Thousands of comic book fans will descend upon Houston later this month for the inaugural Amazing Houston Comic Convention – an event that will bring the creators of many of this year’s blockbuster movies together under one roof, headlined by the best-selling comic artist of all time, Jim Lee.
The convention will take place at George R. Brown Convention Center August 29-31, and will feature a show floor packed with more than 100 exhibitors, an exciting artist alley with more than 200 artists, and autograph sessions, which will give fans access to some of their favorite comic book creators.
Weekend passes are $60, Saturday passes are $35, and Friday- or Sunday-only passes are $25. VIP tickets range from $150-$200. Tickets are available at the door or online. Ticket information, VIP upgrades, and regular event updates are available atwww.AmazingHoustonComicCon.com.
