Long Beach Comic Expo is This Weekend!

Long Beach Comic Expo is this weekend February 16th and 17th. The website I linked to above will give you a list of all exhibitors and events that will be going on this weekend. There is a lot to see and do this year so get there early, and don’t forget to take into consideration, parking.

Just a few things I am interested in is the Cosplay Contest. That is one event where everyone’s creativity is showcased for all of us to see. The contest begins on February 16th at 6pm if you are interested. If that is the case please stop by The Geek Gastby booth between 5pm and 6pm and see Bernie Bregman to enter.

Another event I’d like to mention is the Space Expo. This is also on their website and it is a sporadic events and panels throughout the expo. It is in their calendar if you’d like to check it out.

Space Expo will be at Long Beach Comic Expo 2019

As always I’m there to check out the comics, find some new gems in the small press area, and discover some new stories before they are saturated in the store. I always make time to go through small press, this is where I find some of the most interesting comics. Yes, Marvel and DC, you can always count on them, but the small press area is a whole different ballgame and I love it.

If I do find a “hidden gem” I’ll be sure to write a review here so that you can check it out for yourself or ask me questions about it.

What’s your favorite thing to do at conventions? Cosplay, find a comic, meet up with friends..panels? Hope to see you all there. Most of all enjoy yourself and have fun!

Long Beach Expo is February 16 and 17 2019, at the Long Beach Comic and Entertainment Center.

Saturday 10am-7pm ($40 dollars for the day)

Halloween in July, Midsummer Scream

This year was our 2nd time attending the Midsummer Scream convention in Long Beach California.  We love Halloween and October is a long way away.  Its conventions like these we wait for to hold us over until Halloween.

 

 

“Come closer I may have some candy”

This year the convention was much bigger than in years past.  Many booths and many walkthroughs.  It truly felt like Halloween.  So much so we didn’t want to leave.

“They Live”

The booths were decorated, the picture above is from a great film called “They Live”.  It really makes you think, and the picture is on point.  There were scary walkthroughs on the other side we could have went through but this year we focused on the booths and what the convention had to offer.

This will hopefully become a tradition each year, and will be something we attend in addition to SDCC, Wondercon and LA Comic Con.  Everyone who likes Halloween in July should check it out!
