First off, I have to give Phoenix Comicon 2012 a slow clap for a second…

::clap:: … ::clap:: … ::clap::

Thursday nights are supposed to be calm, chill, a “preview night,” if you will (I won’t). Last night was anything but. It was busy, it was fun.

Well done, PHXCC.

The Phoenix Ultimate Geek Smackdown started things off right, with some epic battles, almost completely filling up one of the larger panel rooms – three rooms combined, really. The feedback we got after the event was amazing. Some folks said they hadn’t laughed that hard in a long time. Those who attended may have a few new inside jokes about The Wrath of Khan’s Nipples.

Bob Leeper sat in the front row and apparently took crazy detailed notes, if you want to see the questions and results.

Tonight is the conclusion at 7:30, room 121! There can be only one champion.

Okay, here are some of our shots from Thurdsay:

Stacey from Dream Photography Studios is helping Darby and I with photos this weekend. She’s incredible!
