Amazing Arizona Comicon kicked off Friday at the Phoenix Convention Center, and thousands of people are expected to join in the festivities this weekend.
The list of exhibitors, artists and VIP guests at the third annual Amazing Arizona Comic Convention is extensive, but one celebrity that’s creating quite the buzz is the head of D.C. Comics, best-selling artist Jim Lee.
“The nerd culture has spread,”said Kelbie Layton with Samurai Comics of Phoenix. “You’ve got Big Bang Theory, comic book movies coming out for something that was frowned up for a long time, it has truly become a highlight.”
Passes are $50 for the weekend, 35$ for Saturday and $25 for Sunday. Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster locations, the Phoenix Convention Center box office, and online. Ticket information, VIP upgrades, and regular event updates are available at www.AmazingArizonaComicCon.com.
