Calling all nerds, weebs and everything in between. Hub City Comic Con is making its return next weekend, August 19th through the 21st at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center.

This is one of the biggest conventions in Lubbock that gets better and better each year. This con is a great way to meet others in your fandom, show off that cosplay you’ve been working on, and so much more.

One of everyone’s favorite parts of Hub City Comic Con is the amazing special guests they have each year. This year’s roster is full of so many amazing actors and voice actors that you absolutely don’t want to miss.

These special guests include Adassa (Delores from Encanto), Justin Cook (Eijiro Kirishima from My Hero Academia, Hatsuharu Sohma from Fruits Basket, and Yusuke Urameshi from Yu Yu Hakusho), and more. You can find the full list of special guests on the official Hub City Comic Con website.

Along with the amazing guests, there will be a wide variety of vendors where you can find some really cool stuff. Everything from gaming and anime merch, to collectibles and toys, the huge vendor hall will be packed with goodies for you to purchase. I always love seeing booths run by artists, because you can always find something truly unique that you might’ve never come across if you didn’t attend the convention.

If special guests and buying merchandise from your favorite fandoms doesn’t convince you to go to Hub City Comic Con this year then maybe the amazing cosplayers, celebrity panels, gaming tournaments, comedy show, pet adoptions, and the rest of the fun things planned for that weekend will draw you in.
