2 Phoenix Comicon Events You Should Attend Because I’m Involved With Them

Phoenix Comicon 2014 approaches swiftly, my friends.

It’s never too early to start deciding what will take up your precious time that weekend.

If you’d like a couple of suggestions based almost entirely on the fact that I’m part of them, here you go:

1: The Phoenix Ultimate Geek Smackdown!

The Phoenix Ultimate Geek Smackdown is one of my favorite Phoenix Comicon events and I love being a part of it.

PUGS is essentially a series of very short all-in-good-fun debates about our favorite facets of geekdom. Topics are purposefully fun but difficult and the audience gets all wound up and laughs, and everyone has a blast.

One ultimate geek walks away with a ridiculous trophy and is crowned the local Patron Saint of Nerds for a year.

I’ll have more info soon on how you can get up on stage and crush your enemies, so stay tuned.

Round 1: Thursday night at 7:30pm
Round 2: Friday night at 8:00pm
Location: North 131

2: I Didn’t Know That Existed! Geeky Things To Do In Arizona

Hopefully the title explains most of it, but it will be about nerdy things going on all year ’round these parts.

Your fun need not end when Phoenix Comicon does! There’s a lot to do around here.

Saturday, 3:00pm – 4:00pm
Location: South 150

Nathan Fillion Is Coming To Phoenix Comicon 2014!

I swear by my pretty floral bonnet that Phoenix Comicon is bringing Captain Reynolds himself this year.

Mr Fillion is actually going to be spending most of the weekend with us here in Phoenix, which means plenty of chances to hear him speak, ask him a question, or even get a signature (especially if you do the weird stuff).

Maybe I can get him to sign the other side of my shirt!

Patrick Rothfuss Is Coming To Phoenix Comicon 2014

All hail the bearded one.

Every year I cross my fingers that Phoenix Comicon can snag this guy for a visit.

The lesson? Crossing your fingers totally works.

Fantasy novels are usually more difficult for me to get into, but Rothfuss’ The Kingkiller Chronicles are a big fat guilty pleasure of mine. Plus, his Worldbuilders project is easily one of the nerdiest charities in the world.

Hey, maybe he’ll announce when Book 3 is coming out while he’s here!!



Okay, I’ll stop.

Prices for Phoenix Comicon go up after the end of the year, so pick up your memberships as soon as you can.
