New year, new chances to let your nerd out; and there’s no place better to do that than this weekend at the North Texas Comic Book Show.
The North Texas Comic Book Show will run Jan 30-31 at the Doubletree Hotel Dallas Market Center, 2015 Market Center Blvd, Dallas, TX and is $10 to get it (kids 11 and under are free).
NTCBS has a cosplay contest that’s different than the norm. Instead of the standard contest where contestants model their costumes, NTCBS judges the contestants based on their ability to perform a skit as the character they are dressed as. After attending the last show, I can testify that this is so much fun to watch. These talented cosplayers really put a lot of thought and heart into their acts, it’s definitely a must see!
In addition to cosplay guests attending, there will be some legendary comic book artists as guests of the show. Amazing Spider-Man & Dr. Strange artist Randy Emberlin, and James O’Barr, creator of The Crow, are a couple of the artists who will have tables at the show. Not to mention a very special four-legged hero – Tugg the Bull Terrier, will be in attendance both days providing many smiles.
As a large advocate for shows “by the fans and for the fans” I appreciate all NTCBS does to make this show truly one that fans will appreciate from beginning to end. I love toy and comic book hunting, and I’ve found some real treasures at this show. There are so many different local vendors and comic book artists; it really isn’t hard to find something really unique.
This show is a great size and allows a relaxing atmosphere while also having enough going on to keep attendees entertained. The local nerd community is so encouraging and supportive; it really is such a great time getting to spend the weekend with fellow nerds.
