The Superhero Comic-Con and Car Show has done it! Founder Bob Wills and team promised an even larger event from last year and they have delivered. Announced today is the Amazing Spider-Man himself, Peter #3 (LOL), Andrew Garfield!
His most recent comeback as Peter Parker in the No Way Home film was nothing short of glorious. Fans from around the world rejoiced when he first walked through the wizard portal and those same fans were moved to tears when he felt redeemed saving a falling MJ (Zendaya) during the final battle. He was given sufficient material and screen time to work with and we are all so grateful for it. His rare appearance at this event will allow fans to show their appreciation.
Andrew will be in attendance Saturday, July 8th, and Sunday, July 9th and will be available for photo ops ($210 each) and autographs ($230 each-maximum of two) on both days. You can purchase those starting on Wednesday, May 24th at 10:00am CST at www.PMXEvents.com.

Blue Beetle star Xolo Mariduena Honored at the SAAHJ 25th Annual Scholarship Gala
In a little under two weeks, the next big, superhero film, Bluebeetle hits theaters around the world. It’s leading star Xolo Maridueña is notch part of the promotional campaign as he is striking in solidarity with these screen actors Guild, but that doesn’t mean his contributions to TV and film can’t still be celebrated.
Xolo was in San Antonio, TX at the SAAHJ Annual Scholarship Gala, and was honored with the Estrella de Esperanza Award. This award is meant to celebrate rising stars from the Latino community and there’s no doubt that he has seen much success and yet he is just getting started.
Xolo spoke highly of his mother and imagined the struggles and challenges. She may have faced in an industry that was underrepresenting Latinos at the time. His energy is infectious. When he wasn’t on stage, giving his award speech, he was taking the time to meet with attendees, taking selfies, or making calls to relatives for those who are in attendance.
Earlier in the event, he took the time to answer questions from the local press and spoke of the shifting environment in which we are seeing for the first time Latinos in lead roles in mainstream media, on a somewhat consistent basis, it’s an exciting time. He’s also discussed what it means to him personally seeing projects led by Latino writers and directors, and how having a crew with a large population of Latinos can help bring a level of authenticity to projects involving Latino stories.
One thing is clear, the future for Xolo is bright and his upcoming superhero blockbuster will have a major lasting impact on the Latino community. Go see Blue Beetle which is now in theaters everywhere. Hear our thoughts on it below.
Superhero Comic-Con has begun!
COMICPALOOZA | HOUSTON TX
COMICPALOOZA | HOUSTON TX, MAY 26-28
HAPPY FRIDAY GEEKS AND GEEKETTES! If you haven’t purchased your passes for Comicpalooza yet…. “Houston we have a problem”
Space City is hosting it’s premiere Comic-Con this month with an ALL-STAR line-up including, Stephen Amell, Chad L. Coleman, Alaqua Fox as well as WWE Stars Mick Foley and Lita (personal favorite) but that story is for another day. The important thing is we all get a chance to meet amazing Actors, Voice Actors, Illustrators and more.
There are few nostalgic feelings we remember that stand above the rest. The feelings of LAN party’s on XBOX CRUSHING mountain dews and playing Halo with the team, or the Carpet and Popcorn smell of a Blockbuster…. The good news is Comic-Cons give us the best of both. I can’t think of a better feeling than walking into a convention center and scoping all of the merchandise and taking pictures with cosplayers across all my favorite genres.
The good news is we are just a few short weeks away from one of the best events in Houston.
It’s all taking place at the George R. Brown Convention Center. Doors to the exhibition floor open on Friday at 3 p.m. allowing shoppers to peruse the exhibition floor while programming panels, special attractions and other lively activations take place throughout the venue. Then, after its successful debut last year, the CP Friday Night Bash amps up the fun with more entertainment and music kicking off what’s sure to be a memorable weekend. Saturday and Sunday will be no different with enlightening panels, diverse local and national exhibitors, stellar guests, and special attractions like the Itasha Showdown which is a fun car show themed out with all your favorites and so much more.
Passes can be purchased at the link below. Come see me and other Geekcasters in person all three days!
