Albuquerque Comic Expo
Spread out over the 106,000 square feet of Albuquerque Convention Center, the Albuquerque Comic Expo assembles a motley crew of comic-book artists, immersive activities, and celebrity guests. The three-day event, running June 21–23, brings imaginary worlds to life as guests meet the artists and actors behind their favorite comics and films. A crammed schedule of events includes costume contests, exhibitions, Q&As with panels of celebrities, and rowdy games of Pin the Tail on the Batman.
