How To Get Tickets to Houston's Comicpalooza
Since its inception in 2008, Comicpalooza has been Texas' foremost multi-format convention celebrating comic books, anime, tv shows, movies and gaming reaching over 45,000 attendees in 2019. After being cancelled in 2020 and an exciting return in 2021, this year's spectacular will occur over three days, July 15-17. The supercharged weekend has exhibits, an art auction, panel discussions, retro gaming and celebrity guests in store.
Known to bring out the biggest stars of both television and film, the convention has a lengthy list of past guests. The wide-ranging catalog includes the newly appointed Captain America, Anthony Mackie and Mike Colter, Krysten Ritter and Charlie Cox of Marvel's The Defenders. WWE Hall of Famers Trish Stratus and Amy Lita Dumas have also attended. And we cannot forget to mention the presence of the highly-acclaimed Lone Texas Ranger, Chuck Norris, and Machete himself, Danny Trejo.
This year, award-winning voice actor and Houston native David Mantraga—the voice of Shoto Todoroki in My Hero Academia— will be accompanied by his fellow castmates Justin Cook, Emily Neves, Trina Nishimura and Chris Wehkamp. Other celebrity appearances include Edward James Olmos, best known for his role as Lieutenant Martin Castillo in Miami Vice, Robert Patrick of Terminator 2 and Sons of Anarchy, and Lance Reddick—notorious for his role as Charon in the John Wick franchise.
The 2022 Comicpalooza will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center.
