Don’t worry. We haven’t fallen into some sort of space-time continuum—a San Antonio version of Kang the Conqueror’s Damocles Base or the Flash’s radioactive Cosmic Treadmill. Yes, the 5th Annual Alamo City Comic Con (ACCC) is about to take place only eight months after last year’s record-breaking event, but trust us when we say there won’t be any world-destroying warheads to dodge or black voids to avoid. And although it would be cool, no one is likely to increase their knowledge of the mystic arts by discovering a galactic wormhole this side of Highway 281. Then, why is this year’s ACCC some four months early? Instead of securing a date in September or October like it had since its inaugural convention in 2013, ACCC was forced to choose another weekend when the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center told founder and director Apple de la Fuente there just weren’t any dates available during those months, especially since the expanding convention needed more space. So, de la Fuente looked at the calendar and picked another—Memorial Day weekend, May 26-28—and told his team they would have to buckle down.
