Amazing Arizona Comic Con Swag And Cosplay – Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and RumorsAmazing Arizona Comic Con just ended this past weekend and what a ride it was for this moderate size convention. I had a total blast talking with independent artists and writers, as well as mainstream. As most know, Stan Lee was unable to attend the convention but the convention staff that was there, along with the DC team, helped fill that gaps.

Although a smallish type kerfuffle, it did lead to a day of praising hard working colorists on Twitter, so good came of it. Jordie Bellaire and Matt Wilson, the colorists in question, didn’t name the con that committed the deed.
