Amazing Arizona Comic Con 2011 Photo Report

From January 8th-9th, Arizona was home to the first comic con of 2011! Brothers Jimmy and Bill Jay threw an awesome comic convention with a host of excited fans. With huge artists and writers from the comics industry, including Robert Kirkman, Jeph Loeb, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Ryan Ottley, in addition to Jon Bernthal and Steven Yeun from the hit TV series The Walking Dead, Amazing Arizona Comic Con was a great way to start off the 2011 con season. Not only was the fan enthusiasm infectious, but the professionals also seemed to enjoy being there, greeting all the guests and signing books. Artist Alley was perpetually packed during the show, and the lines for the bigger guests never seemed to shrink. If you couldn’t make it this year, and you want to see a comic con done right, make sure you come next year! Here are some pictures from the inaugural Amazing Arizona Comic Con (Special thanks to!/gelatometti for additional photos, who reminds you to always charge your phone and cameras at shows!):
