Comicpalooza 2017
Friday, May 12th, 2017 - Sunday, May 14th, 2017

George R. Brown Convention Center
1001 Avenida De Las Americas
Houston, TX 77010

Hopefully, they will be back on Memorial day weekend next year (although that weekend is increasingly popular for cons)

Guest announcements have started.

Hotels are also up (I don't know how long-looks like they did not announce it). More rooms seems to be available at the Hilton than the Marriott, but I don't know if they are still releasing rooms. I wanted to try out the Marriott (it is a brand new hotel), but the Hilton is a great hotel, so I made my reservation there.

I will be at Comicpalooza too. I think the guest list is decent.
Anthony Mackie

Lots of Defenders goodness!
Charlie Cox
Mike Colter
Finn Jones
Jon Bernthal
Elden Henson

And a lot more

I guess all cons are being judged by big ticket guests, and that is fine, but this con has a lot more going for it. Lots of cool panels, NASA representation, and more. I can't wait to see the new convention center area after the years of dodging construction.

Did anyone book the new Marriott? I tried early on, but only certain days were available. So, I am back at the Hilton (which has always been great).

i'm at the Marriott. Should we try for a meetup? If everyone is available Sunday morning, we can meet to be on A Cup of Tea with an Englishman and Alyssa.

We leave on Sunday, but I will see if we can make it work. It would be after check out time. We usually stay a day later, but opted not to this year.

True- I'm comparing to the big names they brought the last few years.
It is a good show.
I love the amount of panels they have, roller Derby, martial arts, quiddich, and of course NASA.
