Hi! There is definitely a growing comic scene here, and there are several cons year round ranging from high-profile ones like Comicpalooza down to indie self-publishing events such as Zinefest Houston or Menilfest. The comic people here are all really supportive as well and we all try to promote each others’ work.
Here are some people you should follow if you’re wanting an introduction to Houston comics:
Ben Humeniuk: hipogram
Isaiah Broussard: ibroussardart
Jamie Kinosian: jamiekinosian
Jessi Jordan: jessijordan
Jason Poland: robbieandbobby
And some events:
