Comic Book Herd
For comic book and pop culture nerds, sometimes connecting online just isn’t enough. The Amazing Arizona Comic Convention starts the year off with a bang and gathers local geeks, fans, and noobs alike starting Friday, January 5.
The second annual edition of the convention will draw together superhero enthusiasts, cos-players, gamers, as well as TV and film buffs for a full weekend of special guests, contests, and cavorting. Propping up the programming this year is a focus on The Walking Dead, the ongoing Image Comic that's the basis of the AMC series of the same name. Dead creator Robert Kirkman and Chandler Riggs, a child actor from the TV show adaptation, will take their places as panelists among other writers and artists.
Jan. 6-8, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., 2012
