Bookmans Mesa is geeking out over our returning sponsorship of The Arizona Comic Mini Expo, now in its third year. This time ACME will be bigger than ever. ACME is a one-day event held in conjunction with Free Comic Book Day at the Samurai Comics located in the same plaza as Bookmans Mesa on the northwest corner of Country Club and Southern.


Twenty top comic creators will sign comics, sketch and interact with fans of all ages on Saturday May 3. On top of all of Arizona’s amazing local talent, this year Stuart and Kathryn Immonen will be the guests of honor. Stuart is a well-known artist currently working on All New X-Men for Marvel Comics while Kathryn is a writer known for her work on Journey into Mystery, Avengers Vs. X-Men, Wolverine and Jubilee and many more titles for Marvel Comics.

With a focus on writers, artists and colorists who 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. A representative from Bookmans Mesa will be on-site with geeking out swag, giveaways and invites to upcoming events. While our store will be fully stocked for your browsing pleasure after you exhaust your need for big finds during Free Comic Book Day.
