This year's Comicpalooza is once again downtown at the George R. Brown Convention Center. After last year's disastrous "everything is on the first floor" convention, this year's edition is set to be bigger and better. Dealers and artists will be on the first floor, with workshops and panel rooms in actual rooms on the third floor, and a bunch of other stuff in the arena area on the 3rd floor.
Convention runs Friday-Sunday, tickets are $40 online and slightly more at the door. I'll be there on Saturday and Sunday. http://www.comicpalooza.com/
