The extremely popular Phoenix Comicon has been a staple for Arizona comic book fans since 2002 and has always been a place that fans and volunteers feel welcomed. Just like the majority of conventions around the world, people may volunteer to work for free (or paid depending on state labor laws) and be able to attend the convention when they’re not occupied with their duties. However, this year will be different for the Arizona convention. Volunteers will be required to join the Blue Ribbon Army. Memberships range from $20-$100 and DO NOT guarantee that you will be able to volunteer at Phoenix Comicon. This turn of events has hopeful participants up in arms.
