Comicpalooza: June 17 - 19
Comicpalooza (one word) offers up an array of movie and comic book related celebrities that will be sitting pretty for seminars and signing autographs the titular event on the weekend of June 17 – 19, 2016 at the downtown George R. Brown Convention Center.
Scheduled guest include: Carl Weathers of Rocky fame, Sigourney Weaver, Bill Paxton, Paul Reiser, Michael Biehn, William Hope, Jenette Goldstein, Mark Rolston and Carrie Henn as well as other Aliens cast members. Underworld star Kate Beckinsale, Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) along with Sean Patrick Flanery and the cast of The Boondock Saints, world-renowned wrestler Ric Flair®, Lennie James (The Walking Dead), Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk), Eliza Dushku (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel), Walter Koenig (Star Trek), Kel Mitchell (Nickelodeon’s Game Shakers), David Prowse (Darth Vader from Star Wars), notable authors Leslie S. Klinger, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Mercedes Lackey, and Kevin Anderson as well as comic book greats Adam Kubert, John Ostrander and Mike Zeck.
Now just to be sure you understand the drill please be advised: Autograph sessions range from $400 for the Aliens cast to $100-plus for individual signings. I’m not saying that it isn’t worth a sawbill plus change to take a selfie with Kate Beckinsale, but are you worshiping her for Underworld or The Last Days of Disco, or her most recent art house attempt Love & Friendship? The seminars and panels are included in the entry ticket price. A good time is guaranteed for all.
