Can’t make it to San Diego Comic Con? Why not check out the Amazing Arizona Comic Con. It’s held at the Mesa Convention Center in Phoenix from January 8th-9th. You can snag a two day pass for just $25! If you’re feeling extra amazing, you can upgrade to a “MVP ticket.” What does this get you?
Early Admission to the main hall
Front Row Priviliges at ALL of the panels and programs
MVP Short lines for WALKING DEAD signing
Schwag Bag packed full of variant comics and graphic novels, which includes WALKING DEAD #80 AMAZING ARIZONA COMIC CON Photo Variant
Original Comic Art, detailed sketch drawing on Marvel Blank comic.
Stan Lee Signed Variant Comic, with certificate of authenticity.
The upgrade is only $75.
As far as panels, I believe the big draw will be the Walking Dead panel. At the moment the guest list includes Jon Bernthal who plays “Shane” and Steven Yeun who plays “Glenn.” Also on hand will be Robert Kirkman. The panel is Saturday at 1pm with an autograph signing at 2:30pm.
As far as Exhibitors go, you’ll find Atomic Comics, Pop Culture Paradise, Harley Yee & more. You can view the rest of the list here.
It seems like it’s a pretty small convention but if you’re in the area and need something to hold you over until the big show in July you might want to check it out!
