Get excited nerds of planet Earth. Or Endor, Hoth the Twelve Colonies -- wherever your allegiances align. Dallas Comic-Con has announced that for its May, 2014 edition, the convention will move closer, setting up camp at the Dallas Convention Center.
That means you'll no longer have to pack your hatchback full of weaponry and trek to the Irving Convention Center or some other distant suburban galaxy. You'll just roll downtown and cosplay it up in DCC's 600,000 sq. feet of space. (Small request: Please visit the DMA in your most slammin' Dr. Who garb. There's got to be a special Friends badge for that by now.)
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
