LA Comic Con 2019 Is Upon Us

This weekend, October 11-13 2019, at the Los Angeles convention center, we have a spectacular comic convention in full swing. I’ve gone to every LA Comic Con through the years, and this year, there is a clear difference in the feel of it.

The convention in general seems much more organized, it was easy to get in, and not too crowded to walk around. The vendors are more diverse and offer some really great items. There is really something for everyone.

As I walked the floor today I saw some amazing cosplays. Its refreshing to see what people can come up with when they decide who they want to depict in their cosplay. Its even more amazing to know that they have made the costume themselves. Some are even functional. Its a photographers heaven.

One of my favorite things to do is to go to Wild Bills. It’s where you buy a cup, usually a cup that is reflective of the venue, and then there is the awesome variety of soda that is available. Personally, I am always getting Sasparilla. In fact, I’ve never tried any of their other flavors. I love the fact that once you buy the cup you get free refills all day. Its a great idea with a solid product.

LA Comic Con is a convention that is for everyone. From young to old, there is something that is appealing. The cost per day isn’t going to break your bank, and you will be able to buy the cool things that catch your eye.

This was the first day, and this is just a quick recap, very quick of my first impression of the day. I will be in attendance tomorrow, which will allow me to write more in depth. I did pick up some comics I will be reviewing and I also have 3 Hot Toys I would love to show you.

If you are going, or even if you can’t, let us know on our facebook, or twitter what you’d like see. Again, I highly recommend this convention, it has a good vibe to it.

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!
