Phoenix Comicon is here!

Phoenix Comicon began as a tiny little con at the Mesa Convention Center. It's grown exponentially ever since, moving to the Phoenix Convention Center, and almost doubling in size every year even now to become a powerhouse convention by any measure! Visit our events calendar for details.

This year, June 6-8, is decidedly for the fangirls with dreamy hunks (I'm told) including Cary Elwes (Princess Bride, Men In Tights), Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead), John Barrowman (Doctor WhoTorchwood), Richard Dean Anderson (Macguyver, Stargate: SG1), Mark Sheppard (basically every scifi show, most notably Badger from Firefly), and of course our own beloved captain, Nathan Fillion (if you need his filmography, you’re in a strange place)! That’s not to say Eliza Dushku (Faith from Buffy, Echo from Dollhouse) and Kelly LeBrock (Lisa from Weird Science) isn’t more than enough eye candy for the fellas, and folks like Adam West, Stan Lee, Julie Numar, John Rhys-Davies, John Ratzenberger, and Danny Glover will keep the tv and film fans busy for the weekend. I’m also personally psyched for Paul and Storm, the best musical comedy duo since the Smothers Brothers (arguably better). AND THAT’S JUST THE CELEBRITY GUESTS! The guy that designed the Jurassic Park T-Rex is coming!!

The exhibit hall is even bigger this year, and still sold out for vendors almost right away. For the past several years, we’ve been content with our 6ft artist table to hock our wares as a fundraiser for our upcoming Can’t Stop The Serenity events. This year however, we decided to double down and get ourselves a full blown booth! Yep, we’ll have plenty of room and even more stuff to help us part you from your hard earned cash… for a good cause. We’ll be back to back with our friends at Bookmans, so we’re super excited.

We’re also loaded up on I think the best selection of panels and events yet. We’re part of the Multiverse track which has a great selection of panels for your every whim, and we’ve got the Whedonverse covered...
