Tucson Comic-Con 2012

Welcome to the show!

The first weekend in November has become a local holiday for Southern Arizona artists over the last 5 years.  It ushers in another ever-growing Tucson Comic Con: a place for local artists to show their works to the world (or at least the city).  This was only my second Tucson Con as an exhibitor (but I’ve been attending since year 2), and every year I see a noticeable bump in show quality.

On Saturday morning, my wife and I loaded up our car with all of the product and promo items we should need for the weekend.  Luckily, we live here, so if anything was forgotten, it wasn’t a lost cause.  Once we cleared up our printing SNAFU for the Tucson Comic Con print, we were off to the TCC!
