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.

Texas Frightmare Weekend Jumps Out At Us This Weekend!

Danny Trejo in MacheteThe show is going to be phenomenal! If you haven’t got your tickets yet to the Texas Frightmare Weekend you need to take a look at their guest list and reconsider. Aside from Danny Trejo, one of the most requested guests, there are a lot of favorites that I would have never thought of seeing.

Tom Skerritt and Veronica Cartwright are making a mini ALIEN reunion. Walking Dead fans will find quite a few celebs, including Chandler Riggs, the Kid, in attendance.


Diane Franklin as Monique Junot from Better Off DeadOne that is unexpected is Diane Franklin. Though it wasn’t a horror, unless you just don’t like John Cusack movies, she played the cute little French exchange student, Monique Junot, in BETTER OFF DEAD. She has done horror in her career, but that’s not what I remember her for.



Patricia Quinn from Rocky HorrorAnd a very big surprise to me, but not to those that are fans of THE LORDS OF SALEM, is the presence of one Patricia Quinn! If the name doesn’t ring a bell, maybe the character Magenta does. Yes, that Patricia Quinn!  All in all a very good list of actors and actresses for everyone and I’m now off to find a babysitter!
