AZ Fandom debuted brand new postcards at Phoenix Comic Fest at the Apocalypse Later table in Artist Alley. Many thanks to Jason Drotman for making these happen. Since then we've been getting them, and other convention postcards, flyers and posters onto freebie tables at many conventions and other places.

It was fantastic to talk to so many fans who are becoming aware that there are a lot of different events here in state. I hope to keep shouting that message at other conventions too. Maybe it's time to start hosting AZ Fandom fan tables. Let me know what you think!


This site couldn't have been put together without the valuable input of many. Many thanks to you all!

Everything here is hosted by the Apocalypse Later Empire.
