A handful of Tucsonans will also be in attendance, including Jon Proudstar, Ross Demma, recent Tucson Weekly cover subject Adam Rex and frequent Weekly contributor and writer of on-going the ongoing comic series Smell Ya Later!, Eric M. Esquivel.

A full list of vendors, guests and a complete con schedule can be found on the Phoenix Comicon website.
