The Phoenix Comicon is Arizona's biggest annual event celebrating comics and pop culture. This year's special guests include Stan Lee, James Marsters, Todd MacFarlane, Diana Gabaldon, LeVar Burton and many more.
Here's my schedule for the weekend. When I'm not in one of these panels I'll be at a table in the dealer's room (or at the Mysterious Galaxy booth).
