Amazing Arizona Comic Con Cancelled Due To Social Climate

And due to Rob Liefeld RSVPing.

The Amazing Arizona Comic Convention, a convention that has been running in Phoenix for 7 years, has been shuttered due to social climate and Rob Liefeld scheduling an appearance. Amazing Houston has also been taken off the schedule, although Amazing Las Vegas and Amazing Hawaii are still going forward. Amazing Arizona's website posted the following.

In 2017, we have taken the both Arizona and Houston Conventions off our show schedule. Changes in guest policies, the comic market, and social climate were causes to re-evaluate moving forward in these cities. Phoenix and Houston are both strong fan communities with multiple genre celebrations throughout the calendar year. While we feel the perspective of Amazing Comic Conventions remains unique, where the Architects of Pop Culture are on the marquee, featuring primarily comic creators; we believe a greater attention can be built by focusing on each of two calendar dates, building these to be the best events possible.

Rob "No Feet" Liefeld took to Facebook to throw his support behind a convention closing, so the residents of Arizona aren't forced to share a building with him.


Rob "Sitterson's Favorite" Liefeld also gave Jesse James, of Jesse James Comics, some advice that he has yet to take himself.

As always, we'll forever take the bait, Rob.
