Phoenix Comicon 2017


As has happened in years past, Phoenix Comicon started on Towel Day! Not a bad way to get things going. Just a quick rundown on how things played out this year.

Don’t forget to bring a towel!

Thursday was fun; it involved some drinking, some panels, and shopping in the exhibitor hall. I learned about meteorite hunting in Arizona and about digital information storage. It’s also the day some whack-job decided to put a damper on the convention by bringing some loaded guns and threatening to kill the green power ranger. That idiot basically ruined costumes for a lot of people since all props were banned for the rest of the weekend. I ended the day finding out that I locked the keys to my truck, in my truck; doh!

Anna took Friday off, and spent some time with me around the convention. We had some drinks at Tempe Tavern to start things off. I got my photo op with Danny Trejo¬†and attended the Drinks With Authors party. It was fun, but I think I’ll be better prepared next year. Anna and I also rented a room at the San Carlos hotel, so we didn’t have to Uber home.

Spent a lot of time here at Seamus McCaffrey’s Irish Pub

Saturday was pretty much a Pathfinder Society day. I met up with the guys, and pretty much avoided the convention center except for the time between gaming sessions when Potter and I did up the Exhibitor Hall. We played a multi-table PFS event called Blood Under Absalom that went past midnight. Good times.

Can’t go wrong with the Monster Scouts.

Getting ready for Blood Under Absalom.
