Ever since the pandemic, many cons have been in hiatus while others have taken interesting approaches such as going virtual. Nevertheless, creativity has continued churning and our indie artists have been busy crafting amazing stories. We not only want to be the voice for these artists who use comics as their choice of medium to tell their stories, but we strive to build a community where creativity continues to thrive. Here in Houston, we are a tapestry of cultures woven together to bring forth something unseen anywhere else, and the creatives here have proven their worth by not only achieving a name for theirselves, but also by winning prestigious awards (such as the Will Eisner Award).
What we hope to bring together at this year’s show will be much more refined and focused on the indie comics being produced. As a group of storytellers our aim is to entertain, whether it be through action, comedy, horror or sci-fi, or whatever the genre. We not only want to bring forth something unique, but we want to bring it with an unfiltered character that big publishers sometimes strip away. If you’re looking for inspiration or education, come check out our panels directly from the indie artists themselves. This year we’ll have games, music, panel discussions, competitions and more. We invite you all to come check out the best indie comics that Houston has to offer!
We look forward to seeing you this year, where Comic Indie Con will be hosted at Silver Street Studios on Saturday December 2nd from 10am till 6pm.
