2018 Comicpalooza held in Houston Texas is where I normally spend my Memorial Day weekend, this was my 8th year attending the convention and I can not wait until next years. This year I met and spoke with different authors, actors, and costume designers all wanting to share just how much they love what they do and how they took the chance and went after their dreams.

Orlando Jones and I. He was very pleasant to talk to, had tons of stories to share with us, and constantly had everyone laughing. His stories were out of this world, some of them I would have never in my wildest dreams thought up myself.

Ross Marquand, my mom and I. Super laid back guy, we literally talked about random stuff and also mentioned what movies we’ve yet had time to see, mine being Infinity Wars (don’t start with me, I have my reasons.).

Ruth Carter, the costume designer for Black Panther. We were able to sit in on her panel and boy was it awesome. Very eye opening to hear where she started and how hard she worked to get to where she is. I was able to get her autograph, and take pictures with her, can anyone saw black girl magic? Super inspiring to hear and see Ruth Carters history, and way of thought for the production of Black Panther, and to know that we can all acomplish the same things she has.

My Comicpalooza purchases, all products were signed by the authors, and all authors are new to me. I love trying out new authors and sharing them with all of my readers, hopefully there will be some reviews on these new guys soon.
