Looking Forward to Phoenix Comicon 2016

2f5255ec-7a72-4379-bc36-898256468bfeHi Readers,

Just like last year (I think these interviews are┬ábecoming a thing), I spent some time speaking with Matt Solberg, the Convention Director of Phoenix Comicon. The conversation covered things from what Phoenix Comicon is doing to keep things affordable for attendees and families (who lets face it make the cutest group cosplays), to how they continue to help serve the nerdy community through their work with Kids Need to Read, including plans for a fundraiser this Spring.

When a geekily gifted writer cobbled together a script of the awesomeness that would occur if Supernatural, Doctor Who and Sherlock all shared a screen, several equally geeky SuperWhoLock enthusiasts read it in character, with the epic results below.

Phoenix_Comicon_logoHi Readers,

While the statement that Phoenix Comicon knows that one size does not fit all could apply to the programming, including any and all pop culture genres and fandom, I literally mean that because fifty percent of their attendees and volunteers are female, they provide shirts in all sizes, including LADIES, something most cons don’t do. To get some details on how appreciated this is I spent time talking with the con’s Marketing director Jillian Squires before the convention last week.
