Revenge of the Nerds
Atomic Comics has been hosting anime events since Straw Hat Luffy was in short pants.
We dont just run the event -- for us, its personal, says Aaron Forrester, assistant store manager at the Atomic Comics Chandler Superstore, panel member for costume creation at Phoenix Comicon, and outfitter of his own Iron Man armor. And this year, were using the empty store next to us for video game tournaments.
The 12-hour manga-rama will see cosplayers and casuals alike creating their own characters, playing Name That (Anime) Tune, dancing with the Café Moe maids, and watching Naruto on the big screen.
Sat., April 3, 10 a.m.-10 p.m., 2010
