In January of 2011 Albuquerque Comic Con became the first Albuquerque comic convention in nearly 20 years. Each year we have grown in quality, number of guests, and attendance. We strive to continue to grow every year to be a better partner for vendors, better outlet for fans, and a better friend to bigger named guests from Comic Books, Film, TV, and other Entertainment.
We host our events in and around Albuquerque and for the next few years we plan on being at the Albuquerque Convention Center.
Jim Burleson is the owner of Albuquerque Comic Con and on the side he is an actor, stunt man, and movie producer. Often times you will see him getting killed by Steven Seagal, or punched in the face by Dennis Quaid. His IMDB can be found here.
Tina Presley Borek is the Director of Marketing and has been with Comic Con from the first show. Tina is a named partner in New Mexico’s largest talent agency in the state of New Mexico booking actors on films such as Avengers, Batman vs Superman, and Breaking Bad. She is responsible for all of our celebrity guests when they arrive.
Cody Smith Candelaria is our Director of Operations and besides working 3 other jobs she finds time to coordinate our VIPs, assigns our Volunteers and sees to their swag, and organizes our event layouts. She has been the reason we have been able to grow so quickly and is to blame for the smooth day to day operations of ACC during our events.
Sabrina Mason is our Volunteer Coordinator or as she likes to be called, the Supreme Overlord of all Things Nerd. She organizes schedules for all of our volunteers who we couldn’t exist without, and sees to it everyone has a place to be.
David Harrigan is a freelance comic artist who has gone so far above and beyond the call to provide us with the graphics and art we have to include him in our About Us page. Thought we can’t afford him if we ever got the bill for the services provided, he is as much a part of the Albuquerque Comic Con family as anyone on this page. He is amazing and there is no doubt, we couldn’t do it without him. Below is a picture by Mark Sarno of David and his lovely assistant Amanda Unis.
Comic Con Security Advisor
Bill Stewart has been working as a communications and volunteer security coordinator since 2012 and has been a stalwart supporter of our events. He makes sure all venue security is up to date on our policies, and sees to it we are all in communication. If you have a problem of any kind that Bill can’t fix, its probably unsolvable.
Comic Book Booking Manager
Jim Brazell has been in comics since the 70s and owned the first comic book store in New Mexico. His relationships with comic book legends and his ability to stay current with comic book trends has made him a valuable asset to the booking needs of Albuquerque Comic Con. He hosts his own events in El Paso and Las Cruces and he can be seen selling at conventions with his Pak Rat Collectibles company.
Our in House Photographer is Melinda Martinez Photography. She has been with us from the first year capturing our story in candid camera.
