It’s time for some fresh-from-the-oven tid-bits and bite sized news surroundingĀ  Arizona’s geek scene, just like mom used to make.

Here’s what I picked up this week:

The Phoenix Comicon’s Badge Art Contest is on!

  • Bust out your mad skills and have your art on some of the badges everyone will be wearing.
  • Check out Phoenix Comicon’s site for the details.

A local artist is in Voltron’s official art book.

The Phoenix New Times mentioned a few geeky things.

SabotenCon moved their Facebook page.

  • Make sure you “Like” the new one if you want to keep getting updates.

Geek costumes should abound at Phoenix’s Mardi Gras tonight.

  • I’ve picked up some buzz around many-a-Star-Wars character being part of the parade.
  • Also heard that more than a few zombies might show up.
  • Here’s their FB site if you’re interested in checking it out/participating.

The Arizona Ghostbusters and SpaceBoyRobot will be hanging around First Friday.

Lightning Octocon 2011 is in 99 days!
