Skybound Returns To Long Beach Comic Con
7th Annual Southern California Event Welcomes Back The Creators of The Walking Dead, Invincible & More!
Long Beach, CA (August 25, 2015) – Long Beach Comic Con is excited to welcome back Robert Kirkman’s Skybound Entertainment, to our 2015 event taking place September 12th and 13th at the Long Beach Convention Center. Skybound will be setting up shop among LBCC’s veritable sea of diverse geek-tastic exhibitors, bringing all the comics, collectibles, trades and exclusive items you can handle. You’ll also enjoy the opportunity to check out SUPERFIGHT, Skybound’s card game of absurd arguments.
SUPERFIGHT pits ridiculous made up characters against each other on a hypothetical battlefield. Cards are drawn to establish strengths and weaknesses, but the real game starts when players get a chance to argue with each other and express why their character would trounce their opponent, with the rest of the table deciding who wins the day and who goes back to their secret skull mountain to cry to their minions. Fans visiting Long Beach Comic Con can get their hands on the SUPERFIGHT core deck and any of its nine expansions, where the real challenge is to not get addicted!
Skybound’s comic book universes of super powered beings, supernatural creatures and ordinary people surviving in extra ordinary circumstances are a perfect fit for Long Beach Comic Con, joining exhibitors like Hero Initiative, Storm King Productions, Man of Action, The Hillywood Show, SGX Print and Comiccraft, providing fans with a convention floor full of talented people and amazing items to be discovered around every corner. Mark your calendars! September 12th is coming up quickly!

Isotope proudly welcomes Rick Remender, author of some of our favorite creator owned books including BLACK SCIENCE, DEADLY CLASS, LOW, FEAR AGENT, STRANGE GIRL, NIGHT MARY and what is sure to be one of the best books of the year TOKYO GHOST with the always brilliant Sean Murphy. Rick also has written some of the best Marvel comics of the last decade including UNCANNY X-FORCE, WINTER SOLDIER, CAPTAIN AMERICA, AVENGERS & X-MEN: AXIS, THE PUNISHER, and the coolest VENOM comic ever.
When we heard that one of our favorite Remender “lost treasures” THE LAST DAYS OF AMERICAN CRIME was coming back into print, we had to invite Rick in to celebrate with us. Check out more about this fantastic book here. Remender is a long time friend of the shop, he co-founded the Isotope’s famous Comic Rockstars Toilet Seat Museum and was our featured guest at our very first event ever, so we couldn’t be excited to have him back and as part of one of our most superstar-laden years ever!
We know Rick has a massive, rabid fanbase so we’re packing in two events for your convenience, a great daytime autograph signing session and a late night afterparty as only the Isotope can do!

The Force is everywhere, but it may be heavily concentrated at this year’s New York Comic Con. On October 8, attendees will receive an exclusive sneak peek of what’s to come in the second season of Star Wars Rebels, along with a panel featuring special guests and a preview of two new episodes from the series.
As the second season of Star Wars Rebels opens, the crew of the Ghost is now a very real threat to the Empire. That’s bad news, because Darth Vader’s been assigned with the task of mopping them up. Undeterred, the rebels seek out old friends and new allies, hoping to rally the formidable alliance which began to crystallize at the end of Season One. Vader will dispatch new agents to counter their growing coalition, but the Sith Lord’s battle with the Rebels could be more personal than anyone realized.
The Star Wars Rebels panel will take place on the Empire Stage from 1:30-2:30 p.m. and be followed by an exclusive screening of two new episodes on the same stage from 5:30-6:30 p.m. These episodes will feature the series debut of Captain Rex, Captain Gregor, and Commander Wolffe — three clones from the hit animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They join another fan favorite from the show, Ahsoka Tano, who made her Star Wars Rebels debut in the final episode of Season One.
Star Wars Rebels returns with new episodes this fall on Disney XD.

Comicazi along with Cartoon Network and Boom Studios present Patrick McHale, creator of Over the Garden Wall, on Wednesday August 26th from 6:00 till 8:00 PM. The evening will include a Free Comic Signing & Cartoon Viewing Party with Patrick McHale.
Space is limited so reserve your FREE ticket now at the link! *Event is now SOLD OUT*
Over the Garden Wall is a lush animated series airing on Cartoon Network. Boom! Studios released a one-shot adaptation of the show, which led to new issues due to its success. These newer issues help expand certain points between some episodes of the animated series. It’s a fine chance for you to get all caught up!!
Over the Garden Wall is an American animated television miniseries created by Patrick McHale for Cartoon Network. The series centers around two half-brothers who travel across a strange forest in order to find their way home, encountering strange and wonderful things on their journey. The show is based on McHale’s animated short film Tome of the Unknown.
Bringing the classic feel of a Victorian fable, this is a fun journey of two brothers trying to find their way home through the Unknown, a strange forest adrift in time. With the talent of Pat McHale on story and the illustrative storytelling of Jim Campbell this is definitely going to be an awesome journey that will appeal to fans of The Secret of NIMH, The Triplets of Belleville, and Grimms’ Fairy Tales.
