Jay Company Comics returns to Phoenix to produce the newest installment, the 2013 Amazing Arizona Comic Con.

With this year’s event expanding to 3 days, and move to a larger facility at the Phoenix Convention Center, Amazing Comic Con has quickly become the premiere destination for comic books and pop culture in the Southwest.
Jay Company Comics is a family run and operated comic book retail organization that focuses on the hottest collectibles in the market. Jay Company was founded by brothers, Bill and Jimmy S.

The Doctor in his new TARDIS
We knew there would be a fair few changes in the next episode of Doctor Who, not least that he would be wearing a new coat and travelling with a new companion, but was anyone honestly prepared for this?
It’s the new-look TARDIS, with hexagons on the walls, a bank of lit switches behind (or in front of, depending on where you are) the central console, and a central console that no longer looks like the Doctor had to remake it out of stuff he found in a Victorian branch of Staples.
It is, in short, a modernisation of his former steampunk aesthetic, which is strange, given that the Doctor himself has started dressing in a more old-fashioned way, much more like his eighth incarnation, to these eyes.
Can’t wait to hear what they’ve done to the theme tune now…
