Son Of Houston-con - New Comic Book Convention Coming To Houston Sept. 9-10

HOUSTON, TX (August 7, 2017) - A new comic book convention is coming to the Houston area September 9 and 10th at Four Points by Sheraton, 2828 SW Freeway, 77098,  and the Admission is only $5 for both days!  Son of Houston-Con will be held both days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m, and features coics, original art, posters and books, toys and more!

The new con is in homage to Houston-con, which was an annual multi-genre fan convention which was held between 1967 and 1982 in Houston, Texas. The founders of Houston-con were Roy Bonario and Marc Schooley; Houston area entrepreneur Ed Blair, Jr. was also a key member of the organizing committee.

Most Houston-cons took place over three days in June, from Friday to Sunday. The convention featured a large range of pop culture elements, primarily comic books but also television serials, science fiction/fantasy (particularly Star Trek), film/television, animation, toys, and horror. Along with panels, seminars, and workshops with comic book professionals, the Houstoncon often featured screenings of old television serials, and such evening events as a costume contest. The convention featured a large floorspace for exhibitors, including comic book dealers and collectibles merchants. The show included an autograph area, as well as an Artists' Alley where comics artists signed autographs and sold or did free sketches. (Despite the name, Artists' Alley could include writers and even glamour models.)

A few Dealer Tables are still available, for more information contact Don Price at 713-988-2765 or email: don_price56@hotmail.com .
