The Phoenix Comicon kicks off today in Phoenix, Arizona. The four day event will have some pretty big names in attendance including: Leonard Nemoy, George Takei, Wil Wheaton, Stan Lee, Todd McFarlane, Adam Baldwin, and even Elvira. But for Star Wars fans the big question is what Star Wars notables are going to be there (although George Takei is now a Star Wars notable too). First off Billy Dee Williams (Lando) is going to be there, as well as the 501st Dune Sea Garrison, the Rebel Legion’s Mos Eisley Base, the Mandalorian Mercs Shonare Vhekadla Clan costuming club and the following artists:

  • Joe Corroney (Star Wars artist for books, games, trading cards, comic books, posters and magazines)
  • Justin Chung (illustrator, sketch artist, and the inspiration for Jedi Knight Kai Justiss)
  • Tom Hodges (Clone Wars online web comic)
  • David Rabbite (Star Wars Celebration 4 & 5, How to Draw Star Wars, and sketch card artist)
  • Denae Frazier (Star Wars Galaxy 6 artist)
  • Jason Palmer (Star Wars comic cover artist)

Plus Star Wars author Michael A. Stackpole!

In addition to all the attendees there will be several special events including a zombie beauty pageant, masquerade, and geek prom. For more information you can check out the Phoenix Comicon’s official site.
