Recently I attended a Bear Essential News Zoom meeting and met Sarah Murphy who is currently one of the managers of the Tucson Comic-Con. Murphy talked about how she was really excited about Tucson Comic-Con coming back after a two year hiatus due to the pandemic.
Murphy enjoys her job as a Tucson Comic-Con manager. One of the reasons that she decided to become a Comic-Con manager was because she loved reading comic books as a child. Her favorite comic was “Inhumans” because all of the characters were so different. Sarah also loved to cosplay as some of the characters from the books she read. For example, she cosplayed as the Black Cat from Spiderman, Medusa from “Inhumans,” and Jane Jetson from “The Jetsons.” When Murphy was given the opportunity to become the Comic-Con manager, she took it and has ended up loving it because she is doing something she enjoys. She also says that the staff that she works with are amazing.
If you enjoy reading or even writing comic books, you should visit the Tucson Comic-Con this year at the Tucson Convention Center. The convention is happening on Labor Day weekend, Sept. 2–4, 2022. Even if you can’t attend all three days of the convention, you are able to purchase single day tickets.
This event will include a variety of activities including, a costume contest, cosplay contests, scavenger hunts, gaming areas, panels, an artist alley, and shopping. For more information go to www.tucsoncomic-con.com.
