Judging by the turn out for day one of Comicpalooza, you would never have guessed that Friday was a work day for most folks. Fans of all sorts were out and about, and there are some pretty impressive costumes on display. We've been roaming the convention ourselves, camera in hand of course. We'll have more photos to show off after things are all said and done, so if you see us, smile... unless that goes against your costume. We understand.
Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
