This weekend, Arizona kicks off the Phoenix Comicon, gets Simpson-ized, swaps pop culture with fellow nerds, and sips coffee while discussing comic books.
Welcome to this week’s list of weekend geekery! Unless today loops over and over again (until you get it just right), it should prove to be a pretty solid few days of fun.
If you’re new here, I put up a post like this every Thursday morning. Sweet, eh?
Thursday, February 2nd
- The big draw will be the latest round of guest announcements.
- (It’s worth going to just to see people’s reactions as guests are announced.)
- At the Phoenix Convention Center at 7pm (show up early, trust me) in ballroom 120D.
- Get more details and RSVP here for door prizes, but you don’t have to RSVP to attend.
- Two quick notes:
- No, it’s not really a costume event, but I guess you could dress up if you want.
- Yes, I will be there wearing my Lightning Octopus shirt so please say hi!
Friday, February 3rd
- Come meet a Simpsons artist!
- (Personally, I’d like to shake his hand for Captain N & The Power Team,)
- At Gotham City Comics from 6pm – 9pm.
- Get the details for this event.
- *Whoops, this is next weekend, on the 10th.
- Read the description here, it sounds awesome.
Saturday, February 4th
- Oh hey, another kickoff event.
- (This one has less announcements and more bio-science.)
- Free, at the Arizona Science Center.
- Starts at 10am and goes until 5pm, so wander in when it’s convenient.
- Getcha some details, yo.
- Join a new group that sits around and talks about comics.
- Quite literally like a book club, but with comic books.
- At Gotham City Comics starting at 7pm.
- Join their Facebook group if you’re interested.
See you tonight at the kickoff event!
