Let The Force Flow at Phoenix Comicon 2015

Question: What’s a giant nerd fest without Star Wars?

Answer: It doesn’t matter, because there’s plenty of it at Phoenix Comicon this year, so you’re good.

If the force is your ally, here are a few things to do & people to see for a good Star Wars-y time.

Let me know what I missed on my Facebook page.

Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest

Say Hello To The New “Phoenix Comicon Fan Fest”

The brains behind the valley’s biggest nerd convention are throwing their efforts into a second annual event, starting this December 12-14, 2014

It’s a smaller, lighter version of the main thing (actors, artists, exhibitors, costuming, panels, etc), and instead of taking place in Phoenix, it will take place at University of Phoenix Glendale Stadium.

They’re still early in the implementation of this one, but they do have information on becoming a vendor, volunteering, etc – but hang tight for things like hotels and guest announcements.

Here’s a link to pricing and other Frequently Asked Questions.
