For example in May, Huston's own Comicpalooza will be in full swing and will have not one but two Doctors at the show. Also, Lou Ferrigno will be making his first ever appearance at Comicpalooza.

From anime to comic books to sci-fi and everything in between. Since the Houstoncon first held in 1967, Houston and it's surrounding areas have been a mecca for fandom and geek culture.

Media guests were common as well back thenstarting with headliner Kirk Alyn, star of the early Superman movie serials.

Whether it's a short hop to College Station, downtown to the George R. Brown, or a road trip to Austin, McAllen, San Antonio or Dallas there is sure to be con for you.

Remember outside of tickets, cons can have different prices for autographs, photo ops, and artist sketches. Most panels are free and allow public access and participation.

Now on to the list.
