We are just days away from the first annual West Texas Comic Con! We are very excited, and we hope you are too! This is going to be our BIGGEST comic convention in Lubbock so far! With great special guests, awesome surprises and fun waiting for you all! By the way, if you haven't already seen our TV commercial that's been running this week be sure to check it out!
A few things... DC and Top Cow comics have kindly donated a LOT of free comics, buttons, posters and other goodies for you all! But amounts are limited to the first 500 attendees in the door! So make sure to be there early. We will have some other goodies for people that come later in the day, but this is the PRIMO stuff! So be sure to come early!
Also, we want to thank the Abilene Star Wars 501st for making an appearance at this show. We hear that R2D2 is coming! Along with many other classic Star Wars characters you can meet and greet! Also, there will be a huge costume contest for all those that come in costumes. This being just days after Halloween, it is going to be quite an event! Registration for the costume contest starts at 12:30 if you want to participate, so be sure to get there ahead of time.
