I’m so glad that bout of angry weather we had Wednesday didn’t stick around for this weekend, there’s just too much fun stuff to do! Here are my top picks for this weekend, and if by some miracle you can make it all of them (which is possible), you’ll have yourself one heck of a perfect weekend.
1.First the biggest and nerdiest: DALLAS COMIC CON! May 17-19
Awww yeah! The annual Dallas Comic Con/SciFi Expo is back this year at the Irving Convention Center and it’s going to be three days full of everything your little nerd heart could ever want want. Vendors, costumes,celebrity photo ops and autograph signings galore will fill the Irving convention center to the brim, making it quite possible that you’ll go in on Friday and not come back out until Sunday. Before you dive into the sea of fan boys and girls here are a couple of things that are a couple of things that are going to be kind of a big deal this year at Dallas Comic Con.
1. Celebrity photo ops and autograph signings with William Shatner and Nathan Fillion
Two of the finest captains to ever command a spaceship will be on site to sign your memorabilia and take a photos with you, make sure to wipe the sweat off your palms before you go in for a handshake or a hug.
2. For the comic book guys and gals: John Romita, Jr. and Arthur Suydam
It’s going to be a good day for super hero and zombie fans. Attending this year’s comic con and signing autographs are John Romita, Jr. and Arthur Suydam, two of the comic book world’s most recognized artists. John Romita, Jr. is most well known to folks as the illustrator and co-creator of the comic book Kick-Ass while Arthur Suydam is the award winning artist of both The Walking Dead comic book series and Marvel Zombies (he has appropriately been dubbed the zombie king), and as if meeting him wasn’t enough Mr.Suydam will also be doing FREE sketches for comic con attendees 16 and younger (omg! free amazing art!).
Like I said these are only a couple of things that are happening this weekend up at Comic Con. Aside from the awesome people watching there will be no shortage of cool stuff to do and see, have a look at the official schedule and see.
