Space City Comic Con returns to NRG Center with stars of sci-fi, fantasy, fantasy, and pop culture film, TV, games, and comics, and the return of Star Trek Captain William Shatner this Memorial Day weekend. Exhibitors will fill NRG Center with collectibles, comics, original art, props, models, games, and more, while stars of cosplay and inventive patrons create favorite characters from every genre.

Continuing to build on its great tradition of cast reunions Space City Comic Con has brought together the cast of the mega-popular Sons of Anarchy TV series for the largest cast reunion ever done.  Fan favorite superstar Charlie Hunnam is making his first-ever three-day signing appearance to meet fans, and his much-coveted autograph or photo ops are offered for a nominal charge.

Promoter George Comits, said, “This was a no-brainer, seeing crowds drawn to Galveston’s annual Lone Star Rally, and knowing that the fandom for Sons of Anarchy would jump at the chance to meet their idols in person, get professional photo ops and autographs signed.” The buzz could entice show-creator Kurt Sutter to attend and share some tidbits of the prequel series he is developing.  According to Comits, “Sutter and his wife, actress Katey Sagal (‘Gemma’) have expressed interest in joining their fellow cast members in Houston if their busy schedule permits and may be announced for an appearance at the last minute.”

Ron Perlman

This reunion began with headliner Ron Perlman,well known for many famous roles in fantasy and sci-fi, including ‘Vincent’ inBeauty and the Beast with Linda Hamilton; the ‘Hellboy’ franchise (and co-starDoug Jones is also attending ‘Houston’s Hometown Comic Con’); Pacific Rim (co-star Charlie Hunnam).  His intensity as ‘Clay Morrow’ on SOA has been followed by his new series, Hand of God, with his SOA co-star Jacob Vargas(Netflix Luke Cage).  San Antonio’s fan-favorite Emilio Rivera (Z-Nation), leader of the ‘Mayans’ gang, is very active on Twitter about the reunion.

The all-star cast headed to Houston includes Michael Beach (The 100, Third Watch, ER), Mark Boone Jr (Momento, Batman Begins), Kim Coates (Black Hawk Down, CSI), Rusty Coones, Tommy Flanagan (Braveheart, Gladiator, Gotham, Guaradians of the Galaxy 2), Ryan Hurst (Outsiders, Bates Motel, Wanted), David Labrava, Michael Ornstein (NCIS, Mob City), Niko Nicotera, Christopher Reed,and Kristen Renton.

Worf’). Dr. Who will be ably represented by Colin Baker (“The Doctor”), Alex Kingston (“River Song”), and Billie Piper (“Rose Tyler”). Additional celebrity guests come from art, comics, gaming, voice, talent, writing, and cosplay.  Cosplay – character costuming – has enjoyed explosive popularity, from science fiction conventions to historic events such as Texas Renaissance Festival to the recent SyFy Network series “Heroes of Cosplay.”
