Phoenix Comicon

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.
