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.

Free Comic Book Day 2019 and so much more!

The May 4th  weekend is going to be hectic for some geeks out there as a plethora of events happen around the DFW area.

Free Comic Book Day 2019
The biggest thing (to me at least) is Free Comic Book Day. For those of you new to the event, FCBD was an idea from Joe Field at Flying Colors Comics. This will be the 18th year of FCBD and always falls on the first Saturday of May. As per Flying Colors website, the goal of FCBD is "to reach out to new comic book readers, to call back former readers and to thank current fans."

Pretty much all comic shops take part in this event in some shape or form. The big things are the free comics (over 50 titles for all ages) that shops will make available. There will also be items specifically produced for this event, creator signings, contests, costumes, and so much more. The easiest way to find a comic shop near you is to go to Comic Shop Locator.

In addition to FCBD, it's also Star Wars Day. This is celebrated on May 4th each year. As in May the 4th be with you. Star Wars Day celebrates everything Star Wars and is every where from comic book shops to book stores and even retail stores. There are some Star Wars titles that will be among the many free comic books to pick up.

And if this is not enough, Fan Expo Dallas will be happening all weekend long. So many celebrities, comics, toys, etc. that it can get a little overwhelming without a little planning.

Check out the links and plan for a fun-filled weekend and be sure and let us know how much fun you had!
