It's almost Comicpalooza time, folks, and Edward James Olmos' appearance at the Memorial Day Weekend comic convention in Houston, Texas. Initially secured for a Saturday-only appearance, it was announced a week ago that Mr. Olmos would be extending his appearance to the full weekend, May 27-29, giving fans plenty chance to meet the star of the reimagined Battlestar Galactica, Miami Vice, and Stand and Deliver.
Some details about Mr. Olmos' appearances.
- The price for an autograph will be $60.
- A professional photo opportunity will be $50.
- A Q&A is also planned but there's no word yet on a time for that event.
Dozens of other celebrity guests (Marina Sirtis, Tony Todd, Peter Mayhew, Sean Maher, Anne Lockhart, Devon Murray and more) are also slated for the convention, as well as comic artists and scores of entertainment options for attendants to enjoy during the weekend.
Comicpalooza will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in downtown Houston. Convention organizers say it is the largest comic con in Texas with nearly 300,000-square-feet of space for exhibitors and events.
