Cosplayers and Pop Culture Enthusiasts Will Delight in the Alamo City Comic Con
San Antonio’s confab of cosplay and comic book nerds actually got off to a pretty late start. It wasn’t until 2013 that Alamo City Comic Con founder and director Apple de la Fuente tried to drag as much talent as possible to town to sate the desires of San Antonio’s geek class. Not surprisingly, Alamo City Comic Con quickly found there was a very strong local market for a top-tier con. If you believe festival organizers, ACCC attendance more than doubled its second year, reaching 73,000 people.
They estimate that around 100,000 people came out to the event last year, meaning ACCC is now one of the largest cons in the country. Among the stars you can catch this year: RoboCop (Peter Weller), the Karate Kid himself (Ralph Macchio), Superman (the Dean Cain version, that is), Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Kristy Swanson), Dennis Rodman (who might as well be straight out of a comic book) and Lando freaking Calrissian (Billy Dee Williams).
If you feel like escaping West Oaks Apartments in San Antonio, Texas for the day, this event is a perfect opportunity to do just that!
