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.

Toy & Comic Book Collectors In For a Treat This Weekend

Spider-Man_id_5084734972_CC_BY_mikecs83_19986455@N00The weekend of October 6th and 7th seems to be shaping up to be a good one for collectors of all types. The North Texas Comic Book Show  will be celebrating it’s first anniversary on October 6th in Arlington, Texas. Offering a reliable schedule – they don’t cancel shows – and affordable pricing for vendors as well as the collectors, the Show bills itself as “the supplement to the comic cons!” Sketch card artist Jason Adams and Hector Rodriguez, creator of El Peso Hero, will be in attendance.

Also, on October 6th in Carrollton, Texas, you can find the DFW G.I. Joe and Action Figure Show going on at the First Christian Church of Carrollton. This is the first official show of the local chapter of DFW G.I. Joe Collectors Club and the admission is totally free!

To round out your weekend head over to the Radisson Hotel at Fossil Creek on Sunday, October 7th, and hit the JMV Toy Collectors Show. Buy, sell, or trade pretty much any type of toy or action figure you can think of. These shows are usually done on a quarterly basis in a lot of different locations, so you don’t have to worry if you miss one, another is right around the corner.
