Alamo City Comic Con PREVIEW

We are a week away from Alamo City Comic Con. Last year ACCC launched it's first convention and it was bigger than even its organizers expected. Cast members from the Walking Dead as well as the original onscreen Dynamic Duo, Adam West and Burt Ward, helped to pack the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center to the point that the Fire Marshal shut down the dealer floor on Saturday. This year the con will also be expanding beyond Hall A this time, so overcrowding shouldn't be an issue.

This years guest lineup is also look better. ACCC not only booked more of the Walking Dead cast; Star Trek TOS legends Nichelle Nichols, George Takei, Walter Koenig will be in attendance. Also attending is The Man himself, Stan Lee as well as Clark Greg, Agent Phil Coulson from Agent's Of S.H.I.E.L.D and numerous Marvel films.

It’s also going to be an 80’s movie weekend. More specifically, a Weekend at Burnie’s. Ok, cheesy, but seriously though, Andrew McCarthy, Johnathon Silverman, and Terry Kiser will be reuniting at ACCC. Another ultimate 80s movie team is showing up. Weird Science fans get ready for Gary and Wyatt, Anthony Michael Hall and Ilan Mitchell-Smith. The cast of the original Nightmare on Elm Street will be there too for the horror fans. Seriously, look at the guest list. There are too many names to list.

With all the pop culture on display, you might think this con might forget that it has “Comic” in it’s name. But like last year an impressive roster of writers and artists have been scheduled. Yes, Stan Lee, but the list also includes the co-creator of The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Kevin Eastman, and DC comics legend, Neal Adams.

Alamo City Comic Con takes place at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in downtown San Antonio, TX from Friday September 26th through Sunday September 28th. There is also a Preview night that has been added on Thursday. It will be open to VIP and 3 Day Pass Holders.
