BOOM! Studios Debuts at Phoenix Comicon

Phoenix Comicon isn't quite so new, but some publishers appearing at the show are a little greener than others. Take--for instance--BOOM! Studios. The publisher has been around for a while, yet have somehow managed to avoid hitting Phoenix. 2013 will change that, with the publisher poised to bring its wares to the show for the first time to Booth #559. Not only that, but 2 Guns creator Steven Grant will also be on hand.

There will be four exclusive variant covers, available only at the booth. Those books will include Adventure Time Annual #1 and Regular Show #1 (both by Meredith McClaren), Suicide Risk #1 (by Joëlle Jones) and Clive Barker Next Testament #1 (by Haemi Jang). Talent on hand will include Gant, Eric Esquivel, Caleb Monroe, Grace Randolph and Travis Hill. BOOM! Studios is also a proud sponsor of the Bleeding Cool Fan Awards, to be presented at Phoenix Comicon on Friday at 6PM in Room 132. Attendees will receive a free Adventure Time #16 limited edition variant cover, which only available by attending the awards.

Phoenix Comic Con will take place at the Phoenix Convention Center located at 100 N 3rd St. Phoenix, AZ 85004. On Thursday the 23rd, the shows hours are from 4 PM-9 PM, on Friday the 24th, the hours are from 10 AM-7 PM, on Saturday the 25th, the hours are from 10 AM-10 PM and on Sunday the 26st, the hours are from 10 AM-5 PM.
