Texas Frightmare Weekend 2014

Con season is beginning to make it’s presence felt. Sully just attended the Dallas Comic-Con Sci-Fi Expo and reported back on all the great intel he got on the panels, celebs, and cosplay. We love going to cons but I’ll be the first to admit that unfortunately, sometimes hearing about a con may slip right past our radar. Luckily, we have some terrific fans who are there to remind us what we may have missed or need to shed a little more light on. Fellow Houston native, fan, and friend @TheSuicidefoxx was eager to do just that. He mentioned Texas Frightmare Weekend (which goes down this May) and we dove right in to research. To our nerdy joy, we found a Texas-based con offering an amazing guest lineup and special events combined with ticket prices too good to pass up. So read on fellow con warriors and let us know what you think in the comments below!
