Controversial throughout its lifetime, to the degree that this local con got a lot of negative press from outside Arizona, it didn't surprise anyone when the dates changed, the venue changed and the event was eventually cancelled.
Even though it never happened, it will be remembered in Arizona fandom as a legendary trainwreck. For a peek down the rabbithole, check out articles like Outlaw Comicon, Failing at Social Media, and How Not to Deal With Guests (nerdandtie.com) or More Phoenix Madness With Outlaw Comic Con And Grandma Elinor's House Of Quilts (bleedingcool.com).
Note: Outlaw Comicon was never officially cancelled. They'd deleted all their social media accounts while it was still on the calendar because of Mike Wheeler's unpredictable outbursts, so they couldn't cancel there. In the end, we just assumed cancellation when the domain lapsed and the website went with it.
