Your Guide to Ace Comic Con

Big Celebrity Lineup Coming to Glendale

PHOENIX - Like a new comic book appearing on the shelf next to Marvel's experimental 'The Spectacular Spider-Man,' Ace Comic Con appeared from virtually nowhere, with little background to its universe. Whether you pick up the book or not, Ace Comic Con is just days away and is bringing in the heavy-hitters for its first installment in Arizona. 

Ace Comic Con is part of the Ace Universe and recently brought their comic con to Long Island, N.Y. which included Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller. Ace Comic Con is bringing a much-needed con to Arizona's comic-con off-season.
