Gear up in your best Sherlock cosplay and prepare to bask in the geeky glory of Phoenix's premier nerd culture event: Phoenix Comicon. Each year, the event grows bigger and bigger with informative panels, nerdgasm-inducing meet-and-greets, and tons of local exhibitors selling everything from independently made comic books to the essential accouterments for Brony living.
This year, special guests include such heavyweights from film and TV as Nathan Fillion, Bruce Campbell, Cary Elwes, Adam West, John Rhys-Davies, and many more. Whether you're an anime junkie, a costuming guru, or a high-ranking Whovian, there's definitely going to be something exciting to see at Comicon this year. Plus, after parties like the signature Masquerade Costume Contest and Zombie Beauty Pageant are sure to keep the fun going all night.
Phoenix Comicon kicked off on Thursday, June 5, at Phoenix Convention Center and keeps the love of all things nerdy, geeky, and dorky rolling until 6 p.m. Sunday, June 8.Tickets, which are $70 in advance for the entire weekend, and more information on all Comicon-related events are available at www.phoenixcomicon.com. -- Heather Hoch
