2012 was an incredible year full of great fun and excitement in comics, toys, movies and TV, and art. Angry Koala Gear was fortunate to keep up with some of the big news and updates and we attended many comic conventions throughout the year. Let 2013 now begin and we have great news to bring with attending our first comic con for the year, which happens to be the first in the year, Amazing Arizona Comic Con.
We have attended each of the Amazing Arizona Comic Cons, which were held at the Mesa Convention Center, but has now moved to the Phoenix Convention Center. Amazing Arizona Comic Convention is on the weekend of January 25 - 27. The convention was created by brothers Bill and Jimmy Jay of JayCompanyComics, who wanted to bring something new and definitely "Amazing" and they have created one of our favorites. The line-up of guests and companies have brought many fans to come out and increase in numbers, which is why it has been moved to the Phoenix Comic Convention and doubling in size.
We look forward to the return of some of our favorites in the comic industry such as creators from Aspen Comics and John Layman (Chew), but we will get the privilege to meet Jim Lee and Stan Lee along with many other special guests. We are excited and looking forward to sharing the news and updates. One lucky individual will get the opporunity to actually win an amazing set of Amazing Spider-Man #700 from Stan Lee himself.
We have enjoyed Amazing Arizona Comic Con very much and look forward to attending once again. Matt Perez of the Angry Koala Gear created something in honor of the first comic con of the year with a Custom Triceratops resin figure, which he used our new line of Sporez figure.
