This Year's Programming:

Side Show Freak-Out Extravaganza by Museum of the Weird: Come and watch the daring feats as performed by Museum of the Weird's professional sideshow performers. 


Kai-Drew #1 Fight Time: Come watch as professional comic artists Matt Frank (Godzilla) and Nick Pitarra (The Red Wing, Manhattan Projects) duke it out for the title of most insane! That's right, with your help two artists will draw their "inner monster" and then have a live debate where you, the audience, will determine whose subconscious will be crowned "King of the Monsters!" It's every nerd's favorite game: who could beat up who in a fight? 


Dystopian Master Session w/ Daker Sho: Undisputed master of the post-apocalyptic, Darker Sho, will create a dystopian genre web comic, start to finish, based on an atendee suggestion. Ever wanted to see "Winnie the Pooh" in a mash-up with "Mad Max"? Yeah, us too. This is also a great opportunity to talk to an experienced webcomic author and find out about this growing medium. 


Mothra Stuart- Bug Cooking w/ Little Herds: Little Herds, Austin's premier authority on entomophagy, will be giving lessons on how to turn today's backyard pests into tonight's scrumptious meal. 


From Out of the Dark Film Festival: We asked for the best creature-feature indie short films that America had to offer, and we got 'em in spades! Come check out some of the most fang-and-claw filled cinema this side of the Rio Grande. Free with your Here There Be Monsters Con admission! 


Testify: A true-story tell-all event where real people tell real stories from their lives. Think "This American Life" only without any fundraising drives. For HTBM Con, the theme is, appropriately, "Geeking Out". Trust me when I say that this encompasses an interestingly wide array of topics. 


Magic Tournament- Warm up your deck sleeves because we are havin' ourselves a Magic: The Gathering tournament! Your entry to the show gets you tournament entry. The tournament will start promptly at noon, with registration ending at 11:50. So make sure you come early and enjoy the show before the game starts. Prizes will be provided by Outlaw Moon!
