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.

Snook over to Boomerang Comics about 10:30pm and a crowd had already gathered. Before I could even get out of the Explorer, I heard a song drifting across the parking lot. A small group was gathered around someone’s car and they were singing along to the Dr. Horrible soundtrack on the stereo. I mean, it is a sing-a-long, right?

Neal threw open the doors and people quickly moved inside. I struck up a conversation with someone (I can’t remember your name but just shoot me an email and I’ll fix it) about creativity and gaming. Especially how to create maps using everything from darts to paint-dripping animals. Don’t ask. In the middle of the store they were playing Street Fighter IV before switching to Rock Band and in the back was a mean game of Munchkin Cthulhu.

There was a Scott Pilgrim character look-alike contest and some cool swag to be won. I couldn’t stick around too long, but I know that there were other raffles for door prizes, so there wasn’t any going home empty-handed.

If you went and got pictures or video, send me a link to them.
