Texas Latino Comic Con at Latino Cultural Center
Britton Peele Recommends
There is no shortage of comic book conventions in D-FW, but there aren't any others like this. The Texas Latino Comic Con aims to celebrate the presence of Latino characters and creators in a medium that's typically very Caucasian. The guest list includes celebrated Venom artist Sam de la Rosa, Hector Cantu (creator of the comic strip Baldo), Eliamaria M. Crawford, Eddie Medina and Richard Dominguez. There will also be panels and some Latino superhero short films, and of course there will be a cosplay contest.
In collaboration with the Latino Cultural Center of Dallas, Dusk Comics and Rio Bravo Comics this comic convention is a first of its kind in Texas highlighting Latinx artists, writers and creators in the comic book community.
The convention will feature local artistic talent, including the creator of El Peso Hero, Hector Rodriguez and Eliamaria M. Crawford of Elia in a Box Comics, a Latinx character centered cosplay contest, and special guests. The event will be free for the public.
