Building on year over year growth and a hugely successful fifth anniversary show, the Long Beach Comic Expo team is proud that the 2015 show will move February 28 and March 1, 2015, with five-times more floor space, offering more exhibitors, creators and programming all weekend.

“This is a fan and family-friendly convention, and it’s a place that is very receptive to artists,” said Pierre Bernard, Jr., graphic artist on Conan, publisher for Totally Graphic. “It’s a great size show, because there are a lot of fans and exhibitors, but it’s not too big that creators get lost.”

As Hollywood moves into the biggest conventions, comic creators and publishers are looking for more opportunities to connect with fans. The Long Beach Comic Expo hosts star creators and award winning publishers and cultivates an atmosphere where comics are still king.

“Everyone I know has a great time when they come to Long Beach,” said Craig Miller, president, Wolfmill Entertainment.

About This Convention
The Midwest Comic Book Association (MCBA) is pleased to announce that the 27th Annual MCBA FallCon Comic Book Party (aka “The One Day Wonder!”) will take place at the Education Building located on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on Saturday October 4, 2014. FallCon, one of the premiere comic book events in the midwest with a growing national reputation, is a celebration of the extraordinary marriage between the written word and graphic arts. A fascinating and focused acclaimation of an American born, truly unique, dynamic, ever growing and evolving medium that comic books represent. “FallCon is a 420 minute nexus of all of the things that make the world of comic books so very compelling and relevant!” said Nick Postiglione, Co-Director of the all volunteer MCBA, “Over the years, FallCon has been built around the concept of developing community and providing opportu nity for all aspects of our growing community to interface in a welcoming and energetic enviroment. The midwest has a long standing reputation of being a breeder reactor for comic creators of all types and given the recent appropriation of cutting edge comic book culture by the much larger mainstream media, it’s a great spotlight for the wildly diverse aspects of our exponentially growing creative community. Including superstar creators, working professionals, up and comers, Independent & Alternative creators, webcomicers, self-publishers, mini-comic folks, small press, and all creative and format points in between!”Of course no FallCon could possibly be complete without the hucksters! Offering a super gigantic comic book marketplace with comic book stores and dealers buying, selling and trading all things comic books. There will be literally tons of comic books (Around 500,000 golden age, silver age, bronze age, current and collectible comic books), trade paperbacks, graphic novels , original comic book art, manga, action figures, statues, Star Wars & Trek, unexplicable trinkets, collectibles and the list goes on into a reasonable approximation of infinity. At FallCon, expectation of the unexpected is generally expected! Costumed characters, hundreds of door prizes, surprise guests, portfolio reviews, attendees of all shapes, sizes, colors, ages, sexes, characters and mundane’s from all walks of life will converge to join the party. A One Day Wonder of pure comic book action! Now is the time and FallCon is the place where there’s something for everyone and everyone is welcome!

About This Convention
The all volunteer, not-for-for profit Midwest Comic Book Association is pleased and proud to announce that for the 27th consecutive year a celebration of comical proportions will take place here in the Twin Cities. The Midwest Comic Book Association (MCBA) MSP Comicon (The event formally known as SpringCon – We’ve renamed our first born!) is scheduled for May 16 & 17, 2015, 10AM to 5PM both days. SpringCon will take place at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds, in the Grandstand, at 1265 Snelling Avenue, Saint Paul, Minnesota 55108

The MSP Comicon, is one of the Midwest’s largest celebrations of comic book culture, it is a unique regional nexus of graphic literature and the wildly diverse communities that fuel it, produce it, and and ultimately consume it. Given the fact that the Midwest has a long standing and somewhat inexplicable reputation of producing a disproportionate number of working comic book & graphic literature professionals, including comic book writers, artists, inkers, etc., as well as being a breeder reactor for new and independent talent, it’s no wonder that FallCon has become one of the leading comic book conventions nationwide amongst the creative community, dealers and especially amongst the fans.

“The MSP Comicon, a traditional comic book convention with a 21st century bleeding edge, continues to benefit as a result of the regions ever growing home grown comic book creative community, a numerically exploding fan & readership base and ultimately the recent adoption of bleeding edge comic book culture by the much larger mainstream media” Said Nick Postiglione, Co-Director of the MCBA “Thematically, the MSP Comicon presents a relaxed, welcoming, interactive atmosphere where all aspects of the diverse worlds of graphic literature congregate, network, debate & discuss and acquire all things related exclusively to comic books and the many sub-cultures these worlds constantly generate, spawn and re-invent.”

An ideal event for seasoned comic book conventioneers, as well as first timers, MSP Comicon is all about celebrating our community, the fun and experience and provides attendees with the opportunity to personally interface with hundreds of comic book artists, inkers & writers. This includes national industry super stars, working professionals, up and comers, independent & alternative voices, beginners, has beens, never will be’s and all creative points in between.

Other goings on include extensive guest creator panels, free portfolio reviews, how to art classes, extensive art show, Arkham Asylum children’s activities, cosplay & costume contest, the super cool MCBA charity garage sale, the prop shop, tons of fan groups, HeroClixs Tounaments, Burl’s traveling RPG, free grab bags, over 1,000 door prizes and much more TBA!

Of course no comic book convention could be complete without hucksters! The MSP Comicon also features a super gynormous comic book marketplace with comic book stores and dealers buying, selling and trading all things comic books. There will be literally tons of comic books (Around 500,000 golden age, silver age, bronze age, current and collectible comic books), trade paperbacks, graphic novels, original comic book art, manga, action figures, statues, Star Wars & Trek, Doctor Who, Godzilla, inexplicable trinkets, collectibles and the list goes on to a reasonable approximation of infinity.

Described by one long time attendee as a “graphic literature blender and bake shop” the MCBA Comicon is the place where graphic arts and the written words are equally recognized and a venue where new and exciting creative alliances will be formed, collectors dreams will be recognized or dashed, new friendships will be forged in the pursuit of common interests, local charities will be benefited, cos playing costume characters will be masters of all they survey, creative types will be inspired and all will be as it should. 840 minutes of pure comic book action! Something for everyone and everyone welcome!
