New 2015 sponsors!

Two great new Arizona based companies join our mission to promote sequential art and the creators who make comics! NCT Phoenix returns for another year and we can’t recommend enough for everyone who enjoys comedy, local theater and improv to check them out! Phoenix College’s Department of Fine Arts offers a degree in sequential and comic art. They utilize great instructors such as ACME guest Tony Parker to teach comic and sequential art as well as a full department of fine and performing arts. We are extremely happy to have them as a partner this year!

Our 2015 Sponsors

SAMURAI_WEBLOGO

Samurai Comics is our host and primary sponsor. When I approached Mike Banks roughly 4 years ago with an idea to take over Free Comic Book Day in the valley, use his store to do it, and put on an event that was 100% comic book & creator focused, he jumped on board right away and helped in a major way to make it a reality. Safe to say without Mike, ACME like it is now would not be around. With three valley locations, Samurai Comics has everything you need  for comics, gaming, manga and pop culture. http://samuraicomics.com/

acme

Acme Prints in Tempe is a fantastic print shop that specializes in everything from apparel printing to business cards. 2015 will be our third straight year partnering with their shop. They do amazing, high quality work and are always accommodating and easy to work with. Because of their generosity I am able to help spread the word and promote the Arizona Comic Mini Expo so well. They also have an awesome name. http://acmeprints.com/

Hopefully I still have an announcement or two regarding new sponsors as we still have a few needs. If you know of any businesses who would like to partner with a great arts organization with a wide customer reach, you can contact us at acmexpo@gmail.com
