Phoenix Comic Fest 2018 runs this Memorial Day Weekend: May 24th – 27th, at the Phoenix Convention Center in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. This convention is 16 years old and still running strong! Formerly Phoenix Comicon, the convention changed their name after the San Diego Comic-con International court case ruled that the word “comic-con” was a trademarked phrase. The Ninth Court of Appeals still has this verdict under review and we could see Phoenix Comic Fest return to its Comicon origins if the ruling is overturned.
Enough about comic convention politics! Let’s get down to who and what this pop culture event offers!
Phoenix has a tendency to reel in the big shots and this year is a whirlwind of celebrity invitees.
From Film & Television there is…
From Anime there is…
From Cosplay there is…
Honestly…we could keep going. Phoenix Comic Fest has guest Authors, Video Game Developers, Comic Artists and SO MUCH MORE! Check them out HERE.
