Superman and The Punisher were just two of the many famous characters within the convention walls.
Lasting the entire weekend, The Amazing Arizona Comic Convention was an event not to be missed by any comic fan in the Valley. The Mesa Convention Center was host to the event, which included dozens of artists' booths, costume contests, workshops, and arcades. Many showed up in their favorite character's costume, while some came just to shop and get signatures from famous comic book illustrators. PHOTOS BY WILLIAM WESTFALL.
