Victoria Comic Con 2015
On January 17th and 18th I was able to attend Victoria Comic Con this was the second year for this convention having not gone to last year’s convention I didn’t really know what to expect. All I can say is they exceeded my expectation. The staff was very helpful in both helping their guest and patrons have the best con they could. The celebrity guest list had a little for everyone from a large group of Power Rangers, Lita WWE Hall of Famer, cast from American Horror Story, and Ryan Hurst from Sons of Anarchy fame, which instead of having all the celebs in one place they spread them out over the different building which I felt with helped with flow of traffic and spread con goers out so that the vendors also got their fare share of visitors to their booths. As for the vendors there were wide variety of them as well from vintage toys and new toys, lots of comics and artist. I was able to pick up a great Godzilla print from Matt Frank which my son loves.
As for the town of Victoria itself the dive was not that far from here in San Antonio it was about a two hour dive, or one episode of my favorite podcast The Nerd 411. Once you are there even though this town may not be as big as San Antonio it has all the major amenities of home from large grocery stores, many great local and chain places to eat and four star lodgings. So it makes it real easy to make a weekend getaway in this town and I plan on it.
If you are worried this was a very family friendly con from top to bottom with tickets being very affordable as entertainment for the whole family. If you missed this convention this you need to start now making plans for next year. Cause I for one cant wait to see what they have in store for 2016.
We at The Nerd 411 want to personally thank Megan and Bryan for allowing us to attend this great event.
