Recap: The Best Moments from Comicpalooza 2023 - Did You Attend?

The 2023 Comicpalooza convention was an adrenaline-pumping experience that left fans buzzing with excitement. One of the highlights of the event was the opportunity to listen to Dominique Thorne and Tenoch Huerta, who played Irongheart and Namor in the film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. Their Q&A session was incredibly insightful, filled with behind-the-scenes anecdotes and discussions about their characters. We were not allowed to record from within but hope to extend our pass to bring you full coverage in 2024.

Walking around the convention in Houston always brings chills. This was our second time with access. We were not able to get as many fan interactions on screen as we would like because a lot of our footage was lost. I'll make sure to rectify that for next year. It was impossible not to be in awe of the incredible cosplayers. Everywhere you turned, there were passionate fans dressed as their favorite comic book characters, bringing them vividly to life. From the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man to Spawn, to One Piece characters to the mighty Thor wielding his hammer, it was a sight to behold. The attention to detail and dedication that the cosplayers put into their costumes was simply astonishing, making it feel like stepping into a real-life comic book universe.

A highlight of the convention was the room filled with comic book-themed cars, where attendees had the opportunity to take pictures and marvel at the intricate designs. It was a surreal experience to pose alongside the Batmobile, a Superman car, and even the iconic car from Evil Dead, which was my favorite.

The room buzzed with excitement as fans of all ages enjoyed their close encounters with these legendary vehicles. The creativity and passion displayed by both the cosplayers and the organizers made the event an unforgettable celebration of the DC and Marvel universes.

In conclusion, the 2023 Comicpalooza convention was an exhilarating event that fully immersed fans in the world of comics and superheroes. The opportunity to listen to Dominique Thorne and Tenoch Huerta, and gain insights into the upcoming Black Panther film, was a major highlight. The countless cosplayers and interviews with new friends brought the convention to life, making every corner a visual spectacle. Overall, Comicpalooza 2023 was a must-attend event for any comic book enthusiast, creating an experience that will be cherished for years to come.

See you in 2024 and this time we're looking to do a live podcast from the ground floor.
