Lose something at Comicon 2017? The Phoenix Convention Center might be saving it for you.
As Phoenix Comicon 2017 wrapped up in downtown Phoenix, azcentral.com rifled through its lost and found Sunday afternoon to see what had been left behind after overdosing on four days of pop-culture bombardment.
If any of these items look familiar, drop by the Information Booth on the lower level near the Exhibitor Hall entrance to snag your item back.
Somewhere our favorite web-slinger is doing whatever a spider can, without keeping his identity secret.
A summoning charm won’t bring these back.
One blonde wig
I’m left wondering who snatched this blonde number off a queen’s scalp.
Hope you don’t go chasing your tail looking for this.
BMW key fob
There’s always an Uber or Lyft to take you back home, I guess.
Disposable film camera
All those memories won’t ever be captured in prints, Isabel!
There’s exactly $4.23 inside. That could have gotten four 99-cent comics.
A child’s entrance pass
I hope the child who was supposed to be attached to this is alright.
