The 2017 El Paso ComicCon is in the (comic) books. Thanks to the stars, scores of vendors, performers, and the thousands of attendees, EPCON was an unqualified success.
For those who made the trek to downtown El Paso and want to take a look back at all the fantastic cosplayers and guests who dressed as their favorite characters, we bring you this gallery, courtesy of our Chief Photographer, Andres Acosta.
El Paso Comic Con next wave of Guest Announcements: Here are some more guest announcements, along with a few of the events, that will will be taking place this year at El Paso Comic Con (EPCON) 2017.
Casper Van Dien from Starship Troopers and Tarzan and the Lost City fame will be coming to EPCON.
Dina Meyer who was also in Starship Troopers and the SAW horror movie series will appear.
As a special event, Casper and Dina will be doing a Starship Troopers movie screening at Alamo Drafthouse. There will be a Q&A with them and you will get to watch the movie with them. Afterwards they will be signing autographs and selling merchandise in the lobby of the Alamo Drafthouse. This will happen Friday night and then they will be at EPCON Saturday & Sunday.
Kevin Grevioux, writer of Underworld and I, Frankenstein will appear at EPCON. Kevin was Raze the Lycan in the Underworld series. He has done some voice acting as well. Kevin will be doing an Underworld movie screening at Alamo Drafthouse on Saturday night. A Q&A, watch the movie with him, and then autographs in the lobby.
AZ Powergirl is a local favorite so it was a no-brainer to have her back. She is not only a great cosplayer, but is the colorist for 183 Degree Studio.
Steve Cardenas played the second Red Power Ranger (Rocky) on the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. He will be at EPCON too.
If you’re looking for something to do at El Paso Comic Con there will be SuperSonic Speed Dating. This is your opportunity to find someone just as nerdy as you are.
The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema Lounge will have couches, big screen TVs, WiFi, and most importantly… charging stations. An electrical outlet is a very valuable thing at comic cons. Taking lots of pics and posting them to your social media really drains your phones battery.
Dave & Buster’s will have 3 of their video games on the exhibit hall floor (Pump It Up Prime, Dirty Drivin’, and Guitar Hero). They will be holding tournaments for these games every day of the con. There will be lots of swag and prizes for the top players each day.
These are some of the newest additions to El Paso Comic Con 2017. Hopefully there will be something to catch your interest.
