While most con attendees worldwide are figuring things out for San Diego Comic-Con, or if near SoCal, buying badges for WonderCon, those that are local to the Sonoran Desert have another event that to look forward to Phoenix Comicon, in June!
While the summer heat may not do much to draw attendees, the convention has been growing year over year, and it keeps getting better and better! Last year was my first year at Phoenix Comicon (meaning I sadly missed Shatner as a guest in 2012), and it was definitely an event that was making an impact. Having amazingly popular panels like The Walking Dead, and cosplay to rival other conventions out there, it’s no surprise that this year it seems is going to be even bigger and better. And now as part of the action (this blogger’s gonna be a moderator!) I’ll have more scoops and photos about this great convention than I’ll know what to do with!
This year, the convention will be taking place from June 5th-8th, and is already filling their guest list with authors, artists and celebrities such as Eliza Dushku and Bruce Campbell (with more awesome guest announcements to come)!
Even though it’s months away there’s so much that’s going into the planing and promoting of the convention, so this blog will be keeping track of the updates and events (including Street Team events for both Phoenix and Tucson), and posting them in a new “Under the Sun” category, as they come!
If you have any questions about Phoenix Comicon, or are planning to attend, let us know in the comments!
