There are dozens of conventions around the U.S., and we love traveling to attend, but once a year we are treated to a con right here in our own back yard. H-Town’s own Comicpalooza is almost here and we are more than a little excited about the lineup of guests and panels for 2016.
Texas’ Largest Comic and Pop Culture Event will be at the George R. Brown Convention this weekend June 17-19 and we’ll be there, will you?
Comicpalooza 2016 Guests
The lineup of celebrity guests for this year is nothing less than PHENOMENAL!!
The ALIENS 30th Anniversary Reunion, featuring Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Michael Biehn, Paul Riser, Jenette Goldstein, William Hope, Carrie Henn & Mark Rolston looks amazing! This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and you do not want to miss out.
The Boondocks Saints panel will feature none other than Norman Reedus & Sean Patrick Flannery, along with co-stars David Della Rocco, Brian Mahoney & Clifton Collins Jr.
In addition to those amazing guests, you’ll also have the chance to see Kate Beckinsale (Underworld, Serendipity, Click), Dominic Cooper (Preacher, Captain America, Agent Carter), Camren Bicondova (Gotham), Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, True Lies), Lennie James (The Walking Dead), Walter Koenig (Star Trek), Peter Mayhew (Star Wars) & more.
