12 Must-See Phoenix Comicon Guests

Geeks of Arizona, we sincerely hope you've been pinching pennies and stashing away your cash as of late. It's really going to come in handy this weekend during Phoenix Comicon, whether you're buying up back issues or variant covers by the metric ton, picking up a few outstanding-looking mementos, or -- more importantly -- getting the autograph or some face time with one of the hundreds of special guests.

And given the sheer number of actors, celebrities, creatives, and icons from the realms of science fiction, fantasy, and comics that will be a part of Phoenix Comicon when it takes place from Thursday, June 5, to Sunday, June 8, your bank account better be loaded. Keep in mind, however, that your disposable income isn't the only thing that's finite.
