LBCC! No, not the community college, but the local comic convention which has graced the Long Beach Convention Center for years! Long Beach Comic Con, is a two-day convention held annually each fall. Unlike other conventions; LBCC is a celebration of not only comic book culture, but horror as well! From exhibitors to panels with the best and brightest in the industry; fans can expect a truly exhilarating habitat for their geeky needs.
Special this year will be the debut of Long Beach Comic Con Presents: The Marshal report, an online talk show that will be filmed live on the exhibit floor throughout the convention.
Of course there will be plenty of guest stars, such as the beautiful and incredibly talented Amanda Conner. Former artist for Power Girl, before DC’s
ruination reboot of the DC Universe., Amanda Conner recently worked on the four issue Before Watchmen: Silk Specter special. Joining Amanda Conner is Thomas Jane who, if judging by last year, is one of the greatest guests to bless an exhibit floor. Ever. Besides being the recent director/ actor of a certain Punisher mini-feature, Jane was also the leading role in HBO’s Hung. Other guests of notice are: Brian Buccellato (The Flash), Scott Lobdell, Todd Nauck, Dustin Nguyen, Jimmy Palmiotti, Richard Starkings, and many more!
On top of arists/writers/actors you will also have the chance to visit plenty of exhibitors which include: Aspen Comics, Boom! Studios, ComiXology, 501st Legion, 5 hour energy (Really?), California Browncoats, IDW Publishing, and tons of comic book vendors! Oh, and for those who enjoy Cosplaying, as usual Long Beach Comic and Horror Con will be holding their Masquerade Ball!
With so much, and more to be listed, here’s hoping we’ll see you at Long Beach Comic and Horror Con this year. Ticket packets can be purchased here, as well as a complete list of Guest, Artists, Exhibitors and more.
See you soon.
