Topic: Comic Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3851 - This blog is an update from my blog #3842, where I reminded you that the weekend after Free Comic Book Day is... The Long Beach Comic Con (LBCC) One Day Expo in Long Beach, California!
Since then, the LBCC folks have uploaded their programming schedule! Which can found via this link.
I've already checked it out and wanted to mention the two programs that both Tina and I will definitely be attending during the day.
11 AM - 11:45 AM - Building Your Comic Book Collection in Room 103B. Bob Bretall is the host of this program and he talks about tips and tricks for building up your own comics collection!
Then at 5 PM - 5:45 PM - There is a program titled: Marketing On A Shoestring Budget - Hosted by Dale Wilson of BuyIndieComics.com and Dani Dixon of Tumble Creek Press. I've seen both of them on programs before and they always have a wealth of information to share! This time they are sharing 10 important things that any indie publisher or creator can do to get their indie comic seen & bought!
And yes... there are other programs during the day, but I wanted to hi-light the two that Tina and I won't be missing out on!
Oh, and as I said in the earlier blog... I haven't missed one of these One-Day Expos yet! Nor the Two-Day Cons later on in the Fall of each year!
For those of you that haven't been to this con... Here's all of the photo albums that I have set up for previous LBCCs:
Here is a link to Long Beach Comic Con's Facebook Page.
Here is a link to the Long Beach Comic Con's web site.
Okay, after checking out those links, you gotta know that this is one comic con that I really enjoy attending! Like I said... I haven't missed one yet! What I enjoy seeing at the One Day Cons are the comic book creators that set up a table and are available for sketches or other commissions. Plus most are pretty good to talk to if you are a fan of theirs! Even if you don't know them, stop at their tables and check out their work!
Who is attending this con? Well... Here is the link to the list of those that will be in the Artists Alley section of the con.
Plus here is the guest list of those that will be at the con.
The Long Beach Comic Expo will be held on May 11th at the Long Beach Convention Center from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.
If you are in the Los Angeles Metro Area... Or even in a county nearby, (Like I am in San Diego County), this One Day LBCC Expo is worth the drive! So I suggest you check it out, if you already haven't been there in a previous year! And if you already been there before, you know it is worth the drive!
See you there! And don't forget to check out a couple of the programs during the day!
