JEFBOT + Phoenix Comicon 2012on May 18, 2012 at 5:10 pm
Hey, if any of you BOTistas and BOTistos are looking for something to do this upcoming Memorial Day weekend and live near Phoenix, Arizona, come on down to the Phoenix Comicon for some awesome geekery starting this Thursday, May 24th! I’ll be there at the BOTbooth (#709) selling an assortment of BOTmerch, including new posters, tees and BOTtons! It’s also possible that I’ll have the new printing of JEFBOT VOL.1_All Dysfunctions Normal, which completely sold out at Emerald City Comicon, but due to some shenanigans at the press, I’m not holding my breath. I’ll keep you guys posted, though.
Anyway, in addition to the lure of the BOTbooth, a huge assortment of artists, writers and celebrities will be at the convention this year, including some of my favorites: Wil Wheaton, Jim Cheung, Steve Rude, Brent Spiner, Erin Grey, Dina Meyer, Jamie Bamber, Brett Booth, Whilce Portacio, William Shatner… the list goes on.
So come on down! As usual, I’ll have some special mini BOTtons for JEFbot readers only. So if you come to the booth, say hi and let me know you’re a BOTfan and you’ll get a free, commemorative BOTton! While supplies last, of course.
Here’s the info:
Phoenix Convention Center Hyatt Regency
May 24 – 27 (Thursday thru Sunday)
Please let me know when you’ll be attending your next comics convention. That way I can arrange to have off both my jobs for that time and to allow travel time. Also let me know when you’re close to Pennsylvania ( relatively speaking ).
the next comicon i’ll be at is the San Diego ComiCon (woo!) in July, Rainey. then (i believe) it’s Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo in L.A. mid-September. not sure when i’ll be headed further east, though; i loved my last visit to Philly, so hopefully i’ll get out there again soon. if i make plans for a con closer to you, i’ll be sure to post about it and let you know. 🙂
You make me want to cry when I see things like this. (Not really, just upset.)
I hope you have a nice time in Phoenix! PS. My sister turned 19 today!
sorry, ShadowShuffler! hoping to do more conventions within a wider area, soon. hopefully, that’ll mean a con near you within the next year or so.
Are there cons that SERIOUSLY go to The Philippines? That’s gonna be a real spirit-lifter if such a thing happens!
i’m not sure, ShadowShuffler – it’d be awesome if that was the case, though! if you hear about any cons your way, let me know.
Welcome back to Phoenix, bot. I’ll see you there.
wooHOO! see you there, Striker! leaving for Phoenix on wednesday. 😀
Glad to see your coming back to Phoenix. Means I’ll be able to resume 3DS stalking… I mean streetpassing. Extra awesome that your gonna be at SDCC too.
i’m glad we were able to resume our 3DS stalkings, WulfBane! your character helped me defeat a big, bad beastie in that “Find Mii” game. 😀
and, yep: SDCC is gonna be AWESOME.
you know it, DJ!
I live in Mesa Az, and wish I could make it. But I am moving to Seattle soon, so I will catch you at the next one there. 🙂
lovelovelove, Seattle, jeff135729a, so i’ll see you there in 2013!
*giggles* Heya! Sorry again about the space.
It was all like: “HOLY PETE! STUFF! MORE STUFF! PEOPLE! Hey, JEFFBOT! T-*insert brain smoke* Are you Jeffbot? o.O
It is good to see you in person though! ^^
ha! well, thanks for getting hyped and visiting the BOTbooth, JeweledRose! remind me of what you looked like. did you cosplay?
I’m about a thousand miles too far away to come to this event, but I hope everything goes great, Jeff!
where exactly do you live, Soul Man? i’m trying to plan some east coast conventions…
It was totally cool having you at the Con!
hey, Moose! it was totally cool talking with you at the con! hope to see you in 2013. or are you coming to san diego…?
It was great seeing you there again! It was a shame I couldn’t get to your booth as often as I wanted to though. Oh well, maybe next time.
was great seeing you, too, skekTek! yeah, we didn’t get to talk as much this year, but congrats on having your own booth! and thanks for the buttons – Joe got ’em to me like, the next day after the con. heheh.
Sorry I missed you man. Busy arse weekend with a family get together and a funeral. 🙁
If you come to Tucson anytime soon, give me a holler. It might be easier to meet up. 😀
condolences to you and your family, TCG – Nathan told me about the funeral.
if i make it to tucson, i’ll let you know. do they have any comicons there?
Not that I’m aware of. Tucson isn’t exactly a great venue for much, if anything. 😛
We do have a con in Tucson! Like TCG said, it’s not a huge thing, but it’s fun. Scheduled for early November, I think. You can read about it at http://www.tucsoncomic-con.com.
