There's more Houston con news to talk about, and this round doesn't include a lawsuit from the GHCVB.
Comicpalooza is the big dog in the world of Houston cons, and this year's lineup may just feature the most interesting reunion yet. Come the weekend of June 17, you can celebrate 30 years of James Cameron's sci-fi action masterpiece Aliens by meeting eight stars of the film, and we're talking some heavy hitters from the world of sci-fi. The lineup includes Sigourney Weaver (!!!!), Michael Biehn (!!), Paul Reiser (yes, he's totally in Aliens), Bill Paxton (try not to get him confused with Bill Pullman), Lance Henriksen (!!!), Jenette Goldstein, Carrie Henn and Mark Rolston.
The Aliens stars join a lineup that includes Kate Beckinsale, Walter Koenig, Kel Mitchell (yes, that Kel), Lennie James, Lou Ferrigno and Fear Factory (who sadly won't be performing, so don't go screaming "Edgecrusher!" at them), with more to be announced, we assume.
It's shaping up to be a pretty good weekend for local geeks. Comicpalooza passes are on sale now.
