Weekend event includes gaming, fan-film screenings, cosplay contest, and appearances by sci-fi- and fantasy-series icons
Though most comic books tell fictional tales about superheroes saving the world, some are just about guys in their mid-40s who can open jars of mustard pretty quickly. Choose your adventure with this Groupon.
From Friday, August 2, to Sunday, August 4, self-proclaimed geeks gather at the Houston Marriot Westchase for Space City Con, an all-ages festival of comics, sci-fi, fantasy, literature, and art. Robert Picardo of Star Trek: Voyager and Stargate Atlantis fame acts as the weekend’s MC, introducing such industry idols as Firefly’s Jewel Staite and Doctor Who’s Sylvester McCoy. Events run throughout the convention, including fan-film screenings such as the world premiere of the Star Wars fan film Pink Five Saga, tabletop gaming and LARP, and the Masquerade costume competition.
