Big Texas Comicon!

A pop culture convention for the whole family, Big Texas Comicon brings top tier talent from the world of movies, TV, comics and more to downtown San Antonio at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.

You can interact with some of your favorite celebrities, get one of a kind autographs, and shop at some of the most unique vendors and artists in south Texas.

With our many years in the pop-culture convention industry, we’ll have an amazing show with a celebrity guest lineup San Antonians have come to expect.

FLoor Hours!


2pm – 8pm


10am – 7pm


10am – 6pm


Tickets can be purchased via the following options:


Autograph prices are set by each celebrity’s agent just prior to the show and some may announce day of the show. However, you can expect to pay between $30-$80 for autographs, selfies, and phone photos at the table depending on the celebrity guest. ATMs will be available on site. You may bring personal items or each celebrity will provide photographs to be signed which are included with the autograph price.

All celebrities will sign autographs and take selfies on their appearance days during show hours when not attending a professional photo op, panel, or on break.


Panels are a question and answer session where you get to ask our celebrity guests your questions. For 2023, all panels and the costume contest will take place in Room 214 upstairs from the convention.



All costumes MUST be in good taste and no nudity. This is a family show atmosphere. Any violations of these policies will result in you being asked to leave.
