Topic: Comic Cons
I wanted to bring 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 conventions start at the beginning of the month, it is easy to overlook them until they are right upon you time wise!
So make sure to mark your calendars to attend Today... after purchasing your ticket(s) to this comic convention! Details will be shown below at the end of this blog post where to buy tickets and get updates before the con.
