From Friday, Sep. 14 to Sunday, Sep. 16, the Fandemic Tour will be making its Houston debut. This convention will bring notable fan favorites to NRG Center and provide a place for comic fans around the city to put on their favorite hero’s costume and meet some of their favorite celebrities.
The event features guest appearances from stars of many universes, including Dave Batista from the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead, Jason David Frank from Power Rangers and many others.
Each day the convention will feature different events for guests to attend.
