Comic-book heroes and villains will burst from finely inked pages at the Amazing Arizona Comic Con. With three days of programming, fans of comics, sci-fi, and anime can stoke their imaginations by meeting artists, gaming, or gussying up for a costume contest. Notable guests will include Chris Claremont, an X-Men writer who created many iconic characters. His 17-year run on the series saw the sale of more than 750 million comics, and his stories have served as the basis for the X-Men movies. Mat Nastos will also be on hand, giving away free sketches for kids. He's written or drawn for Marvel, DC, and others, and has also worked on Disney's Emperor’s New School and Phineas & Ferb.
