When Phoenix Comicon debuted back in 2002, it officially had one special guest in attendance: renowned indie comic book artist Jim Mahfood.

Suffice it to say, a lot’s changed with the event over the past 15 years, especially the size of its guest list.

At this year’s edition of Phoenix Comicon – which runs from Thursday, May 25, to Sunday, May 28 – more than 160 special guests are scheduled to appear at the famed pop culture event and geek extravaganza. That includes a slew of actors and actresses, several dozen authors and comics creators, and many nerd icons.
