Facilitators for both major grading companies will be on site for Signature Series submissions!
Your friendly neighborhood, family friendly, Dallas comic book show will return in February 2019. We'll be at our new location - Irving Convention Center. The Dallas comic convention will be home to a great guest list of comic artists, comic dealers, and a cosplay contest. We are all about comics, smaller, easy to get to, no overwhelming crowds and a great value.
What is the North Texas Comic Book Show all about? – We’re dedicated to comic book fans and showcasing the artists and writers that have helped build the comic book industry. If you are a comic fan, or love super hero movies, we give you a chance to meet the creators that shaped the stories and art that built the industry. If it were not for the writers who provided us tales to remember, or the artists that brought to life the characters and images on a weekly or monthly basis, then we would not have the comic conventions or super hero movies we enjoy today.
We recognize that there has been a shift in convention offerings. The folks that were once the focal point of a comic convention have become a side attraction to the film and voice actors that have propelled the original art and ideas forward. The North Texas Comic Book Show remembers the early day of fandom and who helped build the comic industry. We try and connect you with these folks at our comic book shows in Dallas twice a year.
Indie comics are another great feature. New and upcoming artists and writers can’t wait to introduce you to their ideas and content. Take the time to stop and chat with them about their projects. You’ll find everything from humor to dark stories; introductions to new reads.
It is our hope that you will celebrate the uniqueness of the comic book industry and join us at an upcoming event. There is something for everyone, from convention sketches done by internationally known comic artists to getting your favorite comics signed by their writers and creators. Looking for a certain comic book issue? We have great comic book dealers that will help you. New to comics? You can start a collection or pick up new reads for as little as a $1. There are also toys, games, and handmade item vendors at every event.
We are a family friendly event. Want something fun to do with the kids? This is a great option for a family outing. Introduce the younger generation to comics, let them meet famous comic artists and writers, have them participate in our kids’ cosplay contest, all in a safe and uncrowded environment.
Never been to a comic convention? This is a great opportunity to dip your toe in the water at a reasonable admission price and not all the crazy crowds you might find at a larger convention.
We love cosplayers! If you’re new to cosplay, or a seasoned veteran, we look forward to seeing you at the event. If you’re not a cosplayer, you’ll be impressed with some of the costumes and ideas that cosplayers come up with. It’s really a dedicated art form, oftentimes depicting characters from comic books, that requires a lot of time and effort to pull off. Hours and hours can be spent building, sewing, painting, and gluing costumes and props, for a day of cosplay. We invite you to take part in our cosplay contest at 2 pm on Saturday. There is a $100 top prize and two $75 runner-up prizes. Most cosplayers will allow you to take pictures but be polite and ask. Harassment of any cosplayer is not tolerated, and you will be escorted from the show.
So, there you have it. That’s what the North Texas Comic Book Show is all about – comics, cosplay, family, and fun. We hope that you’ll join us at our next Dallas comic book show!
