Tucson Comic Con is a small, but intriguing convention that includes many local artists and cosplay groups from the surrounding area. I’m highlighting some of my favorite groups and artists that where in attendance this year.

01

AZ T.A.R.D.I.S.

 

One of my favorite booths and the one I fangirl at the most is AZ T.A.R.D.I.S..

 

With their life size replica of the big blue box of my dreams, many masks to dress up and pose with, working and talking Daleks and K9, they really make a Whovains little heart scream with excitement.

 

The volunteers running the booth are also dressed up as some of our beloved characters from the show, really tying the whole booth together.

 

As a nonprofit cosplay group, they raise money for charities, such as the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and the Lymphoma Society by selling hand made merchandise and doing a raffles with Whovian-themed items to win.

02

Team Rocket AZ

 

Another group doing good (or evil) in the world is Team Rocket AZ.

 

As a division of the organized crime group in the fictional world of Pokemon, their main objective is to “Steal Pokémon for profit. Exploit Pokémon for profit. All Pokémon exist for the glory of Team Rocket!”

 

If they aren’t staring down “trainers” looking to capture the allusive Pikachu, they are also raising money for a good cause that isn’t there own. They sell merchandise and hold raffles to raise money for such causes as Children’s Miracle Network.

Val Hochberg

 

With her realistic, cartoony art style and her intriguing comics, she has made her presence known at the cons.

 

I’ve been following her prints at several cons over the past couple years and I always find something new I want to add to my collection. Most of them that I have are Doctor Who related, but she has other work that is amazing too, with her Harley Quinn and Joker print also being a favorite among my group of nerds.

 

For more of her work go check out her website.
