Space City Con - Game of Thrones, Babylon 5
Space City Con’s winter gathering will have something to satisfy every sci-fi, fantasy, comic book and cosplay desire. Actors from the hit HBO series Game of Thrones are attending: Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo), Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell), Gethin Anthony (Renly Baratheon) and Kristian Nairn (Hodor) are on the list. Star Trek is also well represented this year across all brands, so bring your autograph book.
On the artist front, make sure you drop by to visit with one of Houston’s rising comic stars, Jamie Kinosian. Maybe she’ll share a glimpse of her upcoming series, Face the Music, with fellow local talent Meredith Nudo. At the very least, you can pick up some amazing Zelda art from her. There’ll be screenings of Carlos Tovar’s upcoming Web series, More Than Human, starring Joe Grisaffi (In a Madman’s World) and a steampunk take on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Trey Stokes, the only man ever to create a Star Wars fan film that actually launched a character into the official expanded universe of the franchise, will show off his legendary Pink Five Saga.
Noon to 7 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Moody Gardens Hotel, Spa, & Convention Center, 7 Hope Boulevard, Galveston. For information, visit spacecitycon.com. $15 to $45.
Fri., Jan. 3, 12-7 p.m.; Jan. 4-5, 10 a.m.-7 p.m., 2014
