For the third straight year The Blot will be heading to Houston’s Comicpalooza to cover the ever-expanding pop culture extravaganza! While Texas’ preeminent comic-con has definitely expanded beyond just comic books, its biggest guests this year are all associated with Marvel Comics in some way. If you live anywhere in or around Texas this is one comic convention you will not want to miss! Comicpalooza 2015 is once again headlined by the patriarch of the Marvel super hero universe, Stan “The Man” Lee, and he’s bringing with him three huge stars from the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
The most exciting name on this year’s Comicpalooza guest list is Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner! I’ve been told this is the very first comic con appearance (outside of SDCC) for the Avengers: Age of Ultron star, so this will be fans’ first opportunity to take pictures with and get autographs from the MCU’s Hawkeye. The Blot’s personal favorite guest this year is Cobie Smulders (How I Met Your Mother!!!) who has appeared in The Avengers, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Avengers: Age of Ultron as SHIELD agent Maria Hill. But that’s not all! Comicpalooza is also bringing in Agent Carter herself, Hayley Atwell!
That’s three huge stars of the Marvel Cinematic Universe at one convention with Stan Lee. How can you miss out on a convention with this kind of guest list!?!
