Phoenix Comic Con
Starts today. 🙂
I am not doing any panels this year. First time in 5 years.
I wasn’t even asked. I didn’t pursue.
I’m just a normal geek this time around.
I’m ok with that.
I’m also spending more on parking at the Convention center than on Autographs and Photo-Ops because I’ve got most of them and I’m not willing to spend the money on Dick Van Dyke ($200).
PHOENIX – Phoenix Comicon is here!
Before you dress up and head downtown, we’ve got the details on which celebrities are attending, the new activities and games this year, where to eat and, of course, how much it costs to go.

WHEN IS IT?
Phoenix Comicon is Thursday through Sunday, May 25-28, 2017.

All of the official festivities take place inside the Phoenix Convention Center in downtown Phoenix. The address is 100 N. Third Street, Phoenix AZ 85004. Some local bars and restaurants may also be hosting Comicon events and parties.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
Single-day passes are $20-$45 depending on the day you go. A “full event” pass gives you access to Comicon for the entire weekend and runs $75. A “sidekick” pass is for children 3-12 and is $10. There is no cost for children younger than two. View pass information.
Photo opportunities and autograph sessions with celebrity guests do cost extra. Those vary between $40 – $70 depending on the celebrity.
