Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!


For 10 years A Galaxy Called Dallas has had a presence in the DFW area and specifically in the Garland area these last four years.

Begun in 2009 as a hobby blog, it eventually morphed into A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics located north of Downtown Garland, but has now closed.

We now return to our roots as a blog about the Geek Community in DFW but especially in the areas around Garland.

A-Kon 21 Photos from around the Net

Nicholas Pluim sent me these links to his facebook page where he has uploaded photos from the first two days at A-Kon. Thanks, Nicholas!

The A-Kon site as also been nice enough to post links to galleries from attendees. As I browsed I was amazed at the creativity that these folks showed and made me hate the fact that I missed out on such a cool showing. Not as much skin at this one as I’ve seen at others, though there were a few costumes that made me wonder how they got by their parents!

Offer is still open if you’ve got pics that you would like to let everyone know about.
Some favorites:
