This year has seen the addition of several new conventions aimed at the geeky crowd. One of those, the Comic & Media Expo (CMX), happened this weekend at the Mesa Convention Center. The lovely geek host Alice was kind enough to accompany me at the CMX festivities on Friday and Saturday.

Also in attendance was Dante Basco who voiced Zuko on Avatar and Janet Varney who voices Korra on Legend of Korra.
