For those of you who have never been to The Long Beach Comic Expo or even if you have been there, here are a few helpful tips to help you plan out your time at the LBCE!
First, get your tickets. The lines get pretty long so make sure to get to the convention with plenty of time to spare. Parking this year is in the back of the convention center as this convention now needs to biggest hall they have. parking prices can vary but should be around $10 per day.
Of course, check out the main website for a map of the convention, the schedule for both days including panels, guest appearances and other fun events that are taking placing.
Conventions are also great for Cosplaying as your favorite character! But keep a few things in mind:
- Always ask to take a picture with someone, never assume it is...
With the release this weekend of the movie Deadpool comes with it a question. Most interested people have asked this question where only a portion has gone forward to pursue its answer. Quite simply, the question is: “Who is Deadpool?” Wade Wilson or Deadpool was created by artist/writer Rob Liefeld and writer Fabian Nicieza in the early 1990’s in issue #98 of the X-Men spin-off comic book: The New Mutants. He has a super-human healing factor similar to Wolverine and played a villain in both the pages of The New Mutants and X-Force. It went on that way for a while until 1997 when writer Joe Kelly and artist Ed McGuiness took Deadpool, who now starred in his own monthly comic book, in a whole new direction. Deadpool became an action-comedy...
When I first started creating The Stone Legacy, I knew that I was going to be doing something that many others do. I knew that I had to stand out from the rest of the pack so that the masterpiece that is my comic book could be seen in a crowd. When I started to make my presence known on the show circuit, I looked around at other properties that I could emulate. I wanted to find other indie creators whose comic stood out and take a page from their book and make it my own style. One of those books that I looked up to (and still do) had a presentation that was phenomenal and a story that was equally as such. That comic book is Omega 1 and that creators are Mark Edward Lewis and Alina Andrei. Lewis is a director/composer and Andrei an actress/stuntwoman/martial artist/sword master...Read More
What a weekend! The Star Wars Celebration took place at the Anaheim convention center this year! It was the first time that the celebration was held in Anaheim. Rumor has it that they might be bringing it back very soon, but this has not been confirmed.
The opening day was full of excitement as JJ Adrams , the cast and other people involved with the new film were on hand to bring some insight into what the new film will contain. We also got to see the new droid BB-8! Still trying to figure out how they got that droid to work! None the less, it was a very exciting day! The cast and crew also premiered a new trailer with more insight into the film. Favorite moment by far was the ending with Han and Chewie. If you have not seen it yet, click the link below to view it now!

Another Comic Expo has come and gone! Here is our recap and review from the Expo!
What a convention this year! For weeks, there was hype that this convention was now bigger and better than the previous years and boy was that correct! The convention had to be moved to a bigger hall in order to fit all the artists, cosplayers, indie comics and vendors. First for the pros:
There was a lot more people this year which is great! The traffic flow on the expo floor was great and there was barely a slow through out the weekend. The lay out was very well done as well, which is very important to make sure that everyone gets good traffic to their table...Read More

One of the most fun and entertaining things about going to a convention is the cosplayers!
There are all sort of them that come out! It is very interesting to see the detail and the time spent on the costumes. We see a variety of cosplayers and they change depending on what type of convention we are at. Recently, we were at Comikaze in Downtown Los Angeles. Now this convention is run by Stan Lee who is now apart of Disney so we saw a lot more Disney influences there. On Saturday of the convention we counted 150 Starlords from Guardians of the Galaxy, there was a lot of of Elsa’s from Frozen both adult versions and kids versions. Many of the cosplayers went all out and recreated the costumes perfectly...Read More
