This year I wanted it to be even better, so we're bringing in some really great guests to compliment the amazing wealth of talent we already have.”
With the generous help of our corporate sponsors Samurai Comics & Bookmans Entertainment Exchange of Mesa, and Acme Prints in Scottsdale, we are able to have the best line-up anywhere in the Southwest.

With a focus on comics, writers, artists, colorists and editors that have done work for every major publisher in the country, ACME offers something for everyone, and it's all for free. A one day mini-convention for the fans.
