Phoenix Comicon is this upcoming weekend, and AwesomeToyBlog is going to the show. They’ve got a solid line-up of guests and a full schedule of events ranging from anime and costuming to TV and film. They also have a solid entertainment schedule with live music events including a concert by James Marsters’ band (that’s Spike from Buffy, you know).
I’ve never been to the Phoenix Comicon before, and this looks like a great year to take the plunge. Look for coverage of the show this weekend, and likely into early next week. After the jump, the official description of the show, but if you’re in the valley and reading this blog – there’s going to be something at this show that you’d want to see.
The Phoenix Comicon is the signature pop culture event in the southwest, focusing on comic books, anime, sci-f, and film. The biggest comic book creators, anime voice actors, and sci-f movie and TV actors will be in attendance. The Phoenix Comicon begins with a Thursday Preview night on May 27th and continues Friday through Sunday May 28th-30th. Prices vary from $15 for a Sunday pass to $30 for a full three day pass, including the preview night. Children 12 and under are free with paid adult.
