    Hey Guys!

    I just wanted to let you know that there is a huge comic book convention that is happening on November 5 thru 7 in Arlington (Dallas). If anyone is interested in attending, I already have few rooms booked under the Waco FanForce at the Wyndham Arlington which is right next door to where the convention is held.

    I will probably be there too but they are not making it easy for me by having the Batcon there a couple weeks before. Thats a long drive to have to make twice in less than a month :( Last year's Wizard World show was really cool. I advise that if you plan on going, go the first day because it was alot less crowded on Friday than it was on Saturday and Sunday.

    Yeah, I went for all three days last year and I had a blast. I just decided to skip Batcon because I love comic books way much more. I have a special rate at the Wyndham Arlington if anyone is interesting in going which is a really nice hotel where most of the Wizard staff and guests stay at.

    I think there is something out there for everyone and the DFW FanForce and the 501st usually make a pretty decent showing at these cons. I currently have two rooms still booked for the Wyndham Arlington but I am about to late that one go if no one is interested in it. Me and a few other people from the Waco FanForce will be occupying the other room.

    Oh, tickets are $40 for all three days or $20 for one day.
