Long Beach Comic Con

I can’t believe I haven’t been to a convention since Celebration V in August! I’ve been feeling the itch and reading reports about New York Comic Con and others with not a little envy. But finally, I can get my fix. Long Beach Comic Con is this weekend!

The convention is in its second year; in its inaugural year, 6,300 people showed up. Not too bad a showing at all. I’m not sure what the programming schedule looked like last year, but there is a solid variety of webcomics, how-tos, and Q&As. I’m particularly interested in checking out Women in Comics and Girl Power. Stan Lee will be there, so will Mike Mignola. Some of my favorite Star Wars artists too – Tom Hodges and Cat Staggs.

I went to the Long Beach Comic Expo in February and had a great time. I’m looking forward to spending my weekend browsing the exhibit hall, adding new sketches to my con sketchbook, and attending panels.  Plus, I want to see how this con grows.  It's close to me, so I selfishly want it to stick around (though I don't know if Halloween weekend is the best idea for dates).

In case you don’t want to click on the link above (but you should) Show hours are:
Friday, October 29 1:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Saturday, October 30 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM
Sunday, October 31 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

I’ll be there Saturday and Sunday; say hi if you see me around! I’ll be spending a lot of time helping at booth #819 (Bean Leaf Press). I haven’t made the final decision about costumes yet, but if I do get them out, it will be Poison Ivy on Saturday and a Star Trek uniform on Sunday.

  2. I go to several cons, and I'm still amazed by people that go to even more. That's got to become exhausting!
