TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3238:

Tina and I are getting ready to attend a different comic con this upcoming weekend in Metro Los Angeles...which reminded me that I haven't yet mentioned THIS Long Beach Comic Con's 2nd Annual Event in this Blog!

Before time slips away, I want YOU to make sure to mark YOUR calendars for this Great event.

I say Great, because I was there for the 1st Annual LBCC last year at this time.  It's always hard to publicize a brand new comic con, because not having been to it before, you don't know what to expect, or how much you should promote it...

However, Tina and I have been both to the 1st LBCC in 2009 that covered three days, and the LBCC Expo in early 2010, which was a one day affair.  Both were Great, although on different scales.

That's because the three day con was like the old SDCC that I first selling at back in the early 1970's, with dealers and comics creators that you could talk to on a one-to-one basis, without being trampled on during an over-sized and over croweded comic con!

The one day Expo was perfect sized for an in-between show, and reminded me of the old San Diego Quarterly Cons in the 1990's. I found myself talking to creators that I couldn't even get close to at larger shows without standing in long lines to do so!

So Tina and I have definitely booked the last weekend in October to attend this 2nd LBCC.  We suggest YOU check out the links below, both to their Facebook Fan Page, and to their own web site.  I'll be blogging more about this upcoming con in the weeks to come.  This is just first notice for you to check it out for the 2010 event and buy your membership online!
