This weekend, Geek Arizona parties with aliens, genre authors, comic books, and Mario.

These weeks are going way too fast lately. I feel like I was just writing last week’s list of geeky things to do. And, holy crap, Phoenix Comicon is almost here.

And it’s not too late to submit your own caption to the contest from earlier this week. Winners will be posted tomorrow.

Have fun!
