I just can’t help myself. I’m just a big fan of everything comic so why not throw a shout out to Albuquerque Comic Con? A few years ago, our family tried to get into San Diego’s Comic Con without luck due to a tremendously awful online booking system. That horrid and disappointing experience makes us deeply thankful for other Comic Con events such as New York and Albuquerque.
This event is held in the heart of beautiful downtown Albuquerque in the newly renovated Albuquerque Convention Center. They recently printed some witty 12 X 18 posters at PrintKEG. It looks like they have a pretty sweet thing going, so if you’re a comic buff and missed San Diego, visit their website to learn more!
In January of 2011 Albuquerque Comic Con became the first Albuquerque comic convention in nearly two decades. The group strives to grow each year while becoming a better partner for vendors, better outlet for fans, and a better friend to bigger named guests from Comic Books, Film, TV, and other Entertainment. According to their website, Jim Burleson is the owner of Albuquerque Comic Con and on the side he is an actor, stunt man, and movie producer. Often times you will see him getting killed by Steven Seagal, or punched in the face by Dennis Quaid.
A number of comic-themed prints we’ve produced can also be viewed from our Instagram profile. Some prints feature fan art of The Avengers, Spider-Man, X-Men, Wolverine, Superman and Batman.
