Topic: Comic Cons
Yesterday I brought to my blog readers attention that the 1st Annual Long Beach Comic Con will be upon us very shortly...
That's because it starts at the beginning of October; running from October 2nd thru the 4th!
When I was checking the guests lists, both comics creators and media guests, a couple of names jumped out at me. That's because I haven't seen them at a con for a while. Those would be:
Melody Mooney (Hygena on Stan Lee's Who Wants To Be A Superhero? WWTBAS) and Trisha Paytas, (Ms. Limelight also on Stan Lee's WWTBAS)!
I have kept up with blogging about another contestant from Stan's show, 'Fat Momma' a.k.a. Nell Wilson, who I have seen a few times at other cons. She is also fun to meet, that's for sure! (Click here for a recent post.)
Also, back at the end of July I saw Tonya Kay (a.k.a. 'Creature' in the 1st Season of WWTBAS), at Jim Balent & Holly Golightly's booth at the SDCC. (Click here for that post.)
But Hygena and Ms. Limelight haven't been seen in the SoCal area that much, so those of you that are fans of the show will want to stop in and see them both, PLUS their mentor, Stan (The Man) Lee himself who is Master of Ceremonies at this con!
I have blogged several times about Stan's series, and gotta admit that I have a fondness for keeping track of several of the contestants. After all, I keep running into several of them!
So anyways I thought I would point these two fan faves out to you today. Who else is scheduled to be there? Well, here is the link to the full comics creators and media guests schedule: http://www.longbeachcomiccon.com/guests.html - Please note, appearances and times are always subject to possible change, just like at any other convention. Plus there is probably an additional charge for autographs.
Now that you know that these two special guests will be there... You can buy your tickets online for the LBCC at:

BTW.... Whereas Tina and I don't publish comics or books (yet?) or set up at comic cons (except at our own Facebook Virtual Comic Con Dealer Table), we do have thousands of indies and mainstream comics in our own online store. Be sure to check out our new listings of comics, graphic novels, Comic Con exclusives and more pop culture items for sale in our online eBay Featured Store that our blogs are based on! It's due to sales at this online store that keep us going with the ability to post blogs like the one you have read here today!
