Tucson Comic-Con craze

by ALEX FRUECHTENICHT

While Tucson Comic-Con isn’t nearly as big as San Diego Comic-Con or New York Comic-Con, there’s no doubt that attendees take just as serious as they would anywhere else.

Held every November at the Tucson Convention Center, TCC is open to the public, allowing Tucsonans to unleash their inner nerd and buy some cool merchandise.

Many attendees choose to dress up as their favorite characters, or cosplay, and take photos with other people.

Each year, the attendance grows in both attendees and exhibitors from all over Arizona.

The atmosphere is always inviting and a great way to spend an otherwise uneventful weekend in the early November Tucson sun.

If you’ve never been to a Comi-Con, your next chance is  Phoenix Comic-Con Fan Fest this December in Glendale.
