Phoenix Comicon 2015 and Final Girls Panel

Phoenix Comicon, an event not to be missed!!!

Phoenix Comicon, one of Arizona’s best events, is returning to downtown Phoenix from May 28th to the 31st at The Phoenix Convention Center. With a little something of everything to savor even the heartiest nerd culture appetites, Phoenix Comicon has become a yearly staple for pop culture enthusiasts. With special guests like Christopher Lloyd, Ron Perlman, Alyson Hannigan, Edward James Olmos, Jason Mamoa, Karl Urban, Katee Sackhoff, Summer Glau, and many more, including some of the best discussion panels, and a vendor floor that displays some of the most talented artists, authors, and performers in the business.

Make sure to include The Coda on your schedule of events again this year. I will be on another panel with the talented team from Blood Bound Books and the always interesting and knowledgably Andrea Canales (The Midnight Movie Mamacita) from FilmBar. Be sure to stop by and say hello to myself and the other horror movie enthusiasts as we discuss the lonely plight of the FINAL GIRL.


Panel Description
“Examine the phenomenon known as the “final girl”—a role primarily found in horror & sci-fi movies. Blood Bound Books’ editors Theresa Dillon & Marc Ciccarone join forces with filmmaker/film critic Monte Yazzie and film programmer at FilmBar, Andrea Canales (a.k.a. The Midnite Movie Mamacita), to countdown the top Final Girls of all time while discussing if the title and role for these women are empowering or sexist and what the future holds for our favorite final girls.”
