This years Long Beach Comic Expo was filled with many vendors, great cosplays, fun for everyone, and even some learning opportunities found down in the NASA area.
We spent our day speaking with vendors and comic creators as we walked the show floor. I have to say, each year the Long Beach Comic Expo gets better and better. They have secured more vendors and interesting comics. I love to go through the comics and find one that opens my mind to different worlds. If we are lucky the creator is there and I get a chance to speak with them. You get the story behind the story and I absolutely love to have that chance.
One staple at Long Beach Comic Expo is Wild Bills soda truck. It may seem small but it is an absolute must. Sometimes they have special cups commorating the event. Once you buy a cup, you get free refills all day. When you are spending a day at an Expo, this is one of the most cost effective things that they have in the building. It is one of my favorite attractions.
One of the best things about having a comic expo is being able to see your friends. We all spend a lot of time reading the comics, emulating our heroes and talking about our fandom. When you are at the Long Beach Comic Expo, you are all one, no matter what fandom is your favorite. Seeing a friend who you might not see on a regular basis, is a very rewarding feeling.
There is one important thing I find when I go to Long Beach Expo. It’s not overwhelming. The crowd is controlled. Getting into the Expo is not a hassle. Once you get in you are able to move around and really take a look at each booth. Over crowding can be an issue that makes the experience not quite fun. This is not the case at the Long Beach Comic Expo. Its an expo you can fully embrace and enjoy. We look forward to the next time there is a Long Beach Comic Expo or Long Beach Comic Con. I highly recommend if you are in the area, or can’t get to San Diego Comic Con, this is the convention I prefer. It’s just an over all fun expo to attend.
