Following the success of their 2018 show, the organizers of  Corpus Christi Comic Con  have moved the 2019 show to the American Bank Center in downtown Corpus Christi.

Featured attractions include Adult and Kids Cosplay contests, live celebrity Q&A panels, “how-to” and workshop-type panels, over 100 vendors featuring fun and nerdy merchandise.

Throughout the two-day event, there will also be opportunities to meet featured artists and celebrities from comics, movies, and television.

“We are proud that we have built a fun, family-friendly event for our community, and we hope that everyone will come out and experience it. It’s what we set out to do when the show was founded back in 2017 – create a welcoming environment for fans of all ages and genres,” said owners Ryan Romel, Jon Garcia and Daniel Benavides. “We are constantly striving to grow and improve so we can provide the best quality event to Corpus Christi, and we are looking forward to another great year!”

With more than 7,000 attendees each in 2017 and 2018, this year’s event promises to be even bigger.

Announced celebrity guests include Dean Cain, Michael Dorn, Maile Flanagan, Gates McFadden, Janet Varney, Dante Basco, Barry Williams, Oscar Nunez, Leslie Baker, Chris Sullivan, Sean Gunn, Walter Jones, Karen Ashley, and plenty more.
