Fans of superheroes, gaming, and anime join together every year at George R. Brown Convention Center to enjoy Texas’s largest comic book convention right here in H-Town.
Comicpalooza is scheduled to take place Friday, July 15 through Sunday, July 17, and this year’s event is bigger than ever. Locals and visitors outside Houston and Texas look forward to the event year after year.
To recap a little history, Comicpalooza has been one of Houston’s biggest events since 2008, when it was first started up as a smaller event in the lobby of the Alamo Drafthouse in Katy, drawing 500 people without promotion. The event grew from there, to a local mall, to eventually moving to the George R. Brown Convention Center, accommodating the skyrocketing number of attendees.
With so much to do and so many people to meet, it gets overwhelming!
My first one was in 2015, and I volunteered that same year. It was the year Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee came to town and my boyfriend was able to get his Iron Man statue signed.
Luckily, I have compiled an easy guide for first-timers. It’s a lot to cover, but for this post, I’ll cover the basics. The nitty-gritty. The “what you need to know before you go” stuff.
On Comicpalooza’s tickets page, you can find there are a multitude of options.
As of May 16, a standard, three-day pass will cost you $90 online. VIP Passes, which come with a number of perks including priority seating, 30-minute early access to exhibitor halls, and a special swag bag, costs $200.
