El Paso Comic Con is back this spring and we now know some of the big names that will be there for you to meet. Conventions have been dealing with plenty of delays and cancellations for the past two years due to the coronavirus pandemic. Comic book fans and the celebrities that frequent these conventions have been left in limbo wondering when the events would be back and at full capacity. The El Paso Comic Con scheduled for 2020 was postponed to September of this year at the El Paso Convention Center.

When the weekend finally arrived, fans were ecstatic to finally put on their costumes after months of uncertainty. Now, a mere three months later we're hearing not only the date for the next comic con but also that its less than a year away.

The 2022 El Paso Comic Con will take place April 22nd through April 24th at the El Paso Convention Center. Although the convention is a great time to just meet other like-minded, pop culture loving individuals, you'll also want to meet some of the great celebrities that are scheduled to appear at the next convention.

One of the big names that will be coming to the El Paso Comic Con is WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley. Cactus Jack will be coming pretty close to his "hometown" of Truth or Consequences, New Mexico when he heads out to the Sun City to meet his fans. Foley is a wrestler, actor, reality star, New York Times bestselling author, comedian and an all around jack of all trades.

This next name we're excited to see also has ties to New Mexico, we'll at least he's played someone from the Land of Enchantment. Giancarlo Esposito has been in some of your favorite television shows from the past decade including "Breaking Bad," where he played the head of a New Mexico drug ring. My favorite show Espositio starred in was ABC's "Once Upon A Time," where he played the evil queen's magic mirror. But the role Esposito is currently showing his magnificent acting skills in is Disney's "The Mandalorian" as Moff Gideon, a former officer of the Imperial Security Bureau.

The El Paso Comic Con will be held April 22nd through April 24th at the El Paso Convention Center in downtown El Paso. The convention hours will be:

  • Friday: 5:00PM-9:00PM
  • Saturday: 10:00AM-7:00PM
  • Sunday: 10:00AM-5:00PM
