Comicpalooza 2015 Recap

Sadly Comicpalooza 2015 has come and gone but alas, it was fun and well organized. We saw the sites, smelled the smells, and had nerdgasms like everyone else in the George R. Brown convention center. So, if you were one of the nearly 40,000 Comicpalooza participants this year then no doubt we will be seeing you again next year, but if you didn’t come (shame on you) then here are 3 of the main reasons you should come say hi next year at Houston’s largest annual nerd convention.

 Activities

So much to do and so much to see. The George R. Brown center is so huge it was kind of a daunting task to see everything. I might have missed plenty of stuff because there was so much but hey, that’s a good problem to have. Plus, if you downloaded the nifty as all get out Comicpalooza App then you had a pretty great chance of being on top of the schedule and not getting lost.

So what kind of activities were going on you may ask? Well, glad you asked. How about *inhales deeply* cosplayers, cosplay contests, concerts, arcades, workshops, panels, movies, anime, actors, artists, artist alley, dealer room, live art show, t-shirts, toys, League of Legends tournament, wrestling, battlegrounds, drones, robots, and more comics than you can shake a stick at.

Smoothness

I don’t know how they do it, but Houston’s largest multi-genre convention is also the smoothest ran convention I’ve every attended. Whoever plans this thing has their ducks in a row. Never a shortage of friendly staff to help you out, the super nifty Comicpalooza app that you’d be crazy not to have during the convention, and plenty of signs everywhere guarantee you will have a smooth, enjoyable time. A+ to you Comicpalooza. So be sure to experience Comicpalooza 2016 on June 17th-19th  

This is the con your looking for.
