I arrived at the convention center on Saturday for the North Texas Comic Book Show at 8:30 am for a 10 am “doors opening” time. There were already a few people in line to get their tickets, but I already had mine so I stepped outside to get a shot of the exterior of the […]

It’s been a while since I’ve been to a Comic Book Convention, so I’m especially looking forward to going to the North Texas Comic Book Show this weekend for my first visit to this event. I marked this on my calendar back in November in case I was still here in Austin, so I’m really […]
