Greetings fellow Space/Fantasy fans! If you like to spend your free time learning about other planets, attending comic conventions to get closer to your sci-fi favorites or at your local pub for Harry Potter trivia night...this post is for you. I haven’t been to a comicbook show in years but I’m a forever fan of fantasy. If you’re into Astronomy, Greek Mythology, Anime, Science Fiction, Fantasy, and etc, or even if you just think aliens, mermaids, unicorns and fairies are cute, check out some of the “out of this world” events and exhibits happening in Texas:
