Phoenix Comicon 2016

PCC_2016 (1 of 207)

I have been doing Phoenix Comicon for 6 years now. It’s not as much as some other creatives I know, but it’s a consistent event I love to partake in. Every year, it gets bigger and bigger.  Attendance has grown every year and this year was no different. Phoenix Comicon reached a record-breaking 100k attendees (up from 75k in 2015) over the 4 days (Thursday – Sunday). Last year, they moved all  celebrity photo-ops, autographs, and cosplayer props/sets to the 3rd floor, dubbed “Hall of Heroes”, which probably helped attendance as well as free up some space for new artists and vendors.

Phoenix Comicon 2014

Phoenix Comicon 2014 has come and gone. It seems that I wait all year for this one weekend and suddenly it’s here and just as fast it’s gone. I’ve referred to it as the 3.5 longest shortest days of the year. The days whip by being surrounded by amazing talent and in my case, friends..yet, at the end of the day, the physical exhaustion (and my fitbit!) tell me just how long the day actually was. In fact, even on the shortest day, I averaged walking about 4+ miles each day! No wonder I had some sore feet and legs!

Now…on with the good, the bad and the summary!

The Good –
