All Tucson Nerds and Geeks Assemble 

Our top picks of what to do and where to do it

This is year seven for Tucson Comic Con, at Tucson Convention Center, Saturday, Nov. 8 and Sunday, Nov. 9. Keep your Pokéballs close to you, since this year's program opens with a Team Rocket training camp by Team Rocket AZ. The cosplay group is all about the love of Pokémon, so if you have some Pokémon-obsessed kids in your life, get to the Con. There's more all weekend: podcasting workshops, more cosplay fun, costume contests, and opportunities to meet illustrators, authors and other people working in the comics industry, Magic: the Gathering and more. Also at the Con are dozens of vendors and the opportunity to play games including a Firefly roleplaying event on Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. I call Kaylee! Day passes are $10 and $15 for the whole weekend. Children 12 and under get in free with a paid adult. For more on this year's Con, check out their website www.tucsoncomic-con.com.
