There’s nothing more magical for fans than a convention weekend.  You’re lost in a feverish bout of preparation as you gather money to buy exclusive pieces, checking your stock of comics to see what issues your collection is missing or flipping through the schedule to find that favorite panel / booth that you just have to see.  The end result is a ticket to a fanboy or fangirl paradise that’s honestly equal to none.

I want to take you on a journey to my neck of the woods: Tucson, Arizona.  Here in the desert for five years we’ve had our own local comic convention that has successfully uplifted vendors and talent alike for a two-day extravaganza!  From Image Comics to a local high school, the convention was full of people that were eager to share their passions with each other.  We had Doctor Who enthusiasts, painters, digital artists, Anime fans, official fan clubs, tattoo designers, novelists and independently funded comic book makers all on call for something that was nothing short of enthralling.

To be blunt I had a very exciting day and instead of regaling it all for you I figured I’d stick to visuals and show you some pictures.

 

So, what do you guys think?  Did you enjoy gingerly touching the waters of southwestern fandom?  Do you wish you were here?  What did you think of the local cosplayers?  Sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

    The con was great! Just wanted to add a couple names to the Art of Caleb Warner. Besides Caleb, The table shows art from Chris Kirchoffer and Ken Wright. Harrison was awesome in the Social Media Panel!

        Hey, just wanted to make one correction. The name of the artist above is Caleb Warner, not “Walker”.
