Michael D Hamersky On Comics Presents His Take On...
The 2013 Latino Comics Expo - Los Angeles
Held at MOLAA In Long Beach, California!
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3932 -     Yesterday I traveled to Long Beach to attend the first ever Latino Comics Expo held  in the Los Angeles Metro Area.
I had already blogged about this then upcoming event in my blog #3926.
Javier Hernandez & Ricardo Padilla were the hosts of this comic book expo.
The show was held at the MOLAA, Museum of Latin American Art.  Here is the link to its Facebook Fan Page.
I drove up from Carlsbad, California, and it was a pleasant Saturday morning drive for me.  It took me about an hour and a half to arrive there.
Getting there early, I followed a couple of comics artists I knew to the location at the back of the building.
There I met Javier who greeted me warmly and invited me in.
The early photos taken, and shared at the special photo album at my own Facebook Fan Page, show the Expo before it opened.
I started going up and down the rows laid out in the large room.
There were several Latino & Latina creators there from the San Francisco Bay Area, where the Latino Comics Expo had been held for the past three years. 
It was good to see them!  Plus seeing the comics creators I already knew from years of hitting Los Angeles based comic cons!
There were four panels held yesterday, starting at 12PM and the last one starting at 3PM.   I attended three of them:
The DIY Comics panel - Hosted by Javier Hernandez.
The Jim Lujan Cartoon Show - hosted by Jim.
Bring on the Lucha Heroes: 60 Years of Mexican Masked Wrestlers in Comics - hosted by Keith Rainville.
I enjoyed all three of the above panels!  I will be blogging about the Lucha Heroes panel later.
It took me from about 10:30 AM to 5PM to see it all!   Of course I did stop and chat with almost all of the comics creators in the large room!
In addition there was a Food Truck in attendance!  I enjoyed the Dirty Sanchez hamburger with pastrami for lunch!  Good job, El Burger Luchador!
The Latino Comics Expo runs Saturday through today, Sunday. 
The neat thing is that today the cost of admittance is FREE!  Thanks to Target Department Stores for that!
So if YOU are in the Los Angeles Metro Area today, check it out!
Here's the link to the Facebook Event Page for the Latino Comics Expo, so you can check out the address, etc.   Again, the Expo runs from 11AM to 5PM Today!  There are 4 panels in the Screeming Room, and three programs in the Kid's Craft Room. 
And... The Latino Comics Expo is FREE to attend today!!  And it is kid-friendly!
I definitely enjoyed myself at this Latino Comics Expo! 
Javier & Ricardo can be proud of the first ever Expo held in the Los Angeles Metro Area! 
Be sure to go there today if YOU are in the LA Metro Area!
The front of the molaa building in Long Beach, California, where the Expo was held!
Crystal Gonzalez was one of a dozen of comics creators that came down from the Bay Area!
  J. Gonzo had a table at the Latino Comics Expo, and was also on the 'Bring on The Lucha Heroes' panel!
 Always a pleasure to see Rafael Navarro at a Con!
 Javier Hernandez had a booth at the Expo, as well as being a co-founder of the event!
 This time I made sure I had lunch at a comic con! Courtesy of El Burger Luchador!
 A really enjoyable panel, 'Bring on the Lucha Heroes'. Shown (l-r) are Keith Rainville, luchador Lestat, and Rafael Navarro!
