Tucson Comic Con

The weekend of November 6th- 8th belonged to the Tucson Comic Con, this was there 8th year hosting the event. This was also my first time attending and was better then anything I had expected. I received a media pass and took along a friend to help with the site. There was something at the convention for everyone, whether there were little ones, cosplayers, or the comic book lover. Tucson Comic Con offered everything from a Gaming Room, Cosplay area, their first Car Show, Panels, Exhibitor hall and so much more.

We arrived late afternoon on Saturday and began our trip on the convention exhibitor floor, me and the friend split ways and checked it out. I did a run through to see where some of my faves were and what all it had to offer. Then went back and began talking to people, I was saving Sunday for the actual shopping day.

Cosplay Area
Car Show
Costuming Area where everyone can get pictures one the millennium falcon, in a action figure toy box and even by the Tardis of Doctor Who. This was Tucson Comic Con first time having a car show, and as I always say I love when two of my favorite things come together. Cars and nerdism is what the combination was this time. They were beautiful (said in Jim Carey Bruce Almighty Voice)

I was so excited to see fellow artist that I have met at previous conventions and their new work. One of them being Ruben Rosas of AcomicWorld Art. They had just got done with a previous show the weekend before that’s two shows in a row and were still going strong. Picked up two pieces, Batman and a previous show exclusive print with Rocket Raccoon & Groot.

Stopped by Drakery Art and picked up a piece from them as well, Black Widow it was. This was their first time doing a superhero art piece. It looked really good with the rest of the pieces they had and also looked awesome next to my Black Widow Funko Pop Figure. 

Work of Tony Amato
An Artists that I met at the Southwest Makers Fest and started a collection of his work was there as well. Tony Amato of Amatoisms he had a new serious that I enjoyed and picked up my first piece of it, and picked up a bonus Batgirl Metal card art.

Joey Lee Cabral                                         Victor of Vodlines
Met some new artists that I enjoyed talking to and loved their art as well and hope I get to see them at future shows. Joey Lee Cabral had unique art such as paintings on wood that looked pretty awesome and if I could I would have bought one. I settled for some prints of Thor and a Gambit for a friend. I also came across Victor of VodLines, it was his first time at a comic con and I was so excited for him. He was promoting his graphic novel Flying Somnia. Imagination is a power and definitely had my attention.

After the shopping and chatting it was time for a panel on Sunday, that panel was the Supernatural Fan Panel. A few fans getting together to talk about an awesome show. With my current obsession phase that I am in with the show it was pretty fun for me. There were spoilers but that was the risk I took going and didn’t mind it as much as I thought I would. It will still be exciting to watch it when the scenes come to pass. The hosts of the panel were pretty fun to and cosplayed the characters of the show Sam Dean and Crowely, there was also a Castiel in the midst of the audience. I made the debut of all my Supernatural apparel at the panel. 

I wanted to buy something from everybody, I really enjoyed the variety of art and other merchandise that was available at this show. This was my first year there and there was more people than I thought there would be and was really glad I went. I can’t wait till next year! Stay tuned I might feature some of the fun people I talked to on the site in the future and hope to see them at future shows. Let me know if you went to the Tucson Comic Con here or on Twitter. Also be sure to check out Instagram for some pics throughout the weekend.
