Tucson Comic-Con is an event where people of many pop culture groups meet to enjoy the game or show they like, as well as to see other participants of other groups.
Comic-Con consists of many things to do, such as games, “cosplays”, raffles, competitions, and more. Many pop culture groups can be found throughout Comic-Con, such as Fallout, Resident Evil, and Ghostbusters.
This event is not just for adolescents and young adults.
“I like to see the new preview video games, movies, and comics. The first thing I want to see at Comic-Con is Dark Horse,” said Mr. Travis, a Pueblo teacher excited for Comic-Con.
There will be several vendors at Comic-Con, and most will only accept cash. Some items sold at Comic-Con are Funko Pops, trading cards like Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokémon, comics, figurines, and more.
“I’m most excited for the merchandise. It’s the thrill of spending money on posters, figurines, and equipment,” said Damian Witt, a Pueblo High School student who expressed great interested in the upcoming Comic-Con.
