Phoenix Fan Fusion
Phoenix Fan Fusion (formerly Phoenix Comicon and Phoenix Comic Fest) is a speculative fiction entertainment and comic book convention held annually in Phoenix, Arizona. The convention plays host to comic related panels, programming events, art contests, and autograph signings for all ages.
Originally showcasing comic books, science fiction/fantasy and film/television, and related popular arts, the convention has expanded over the years to include a larger range of pop culture elements, such as horror, anime, manga, animation, toys, collectible card games, video games, webcomics, and fantasy novels. In 2016, the convention set an attendance record of 106,096, and reportedly generates approximately $5 million in revenue for the city of Phoenix.
The first Phoenix Comicon was held in June 2002. In January 2018, the convention was renamed Phoenix Comic Fest. During the 2018 convention, it was announced that the convention would again be renamed in 2019, taking the name Phoenix Fan Fusion.
