CA – Sketch Fighter 2015


Guest artists ANDREW ROBINSON (The Fifth Beatle), LIVIO RAMONDELLI (Transformers), RAFAEL NAVARRO, SCOTT LOBDELL, and RALPH MIRANDA appear at The Comic Bug on Saturday, January 24, 2015 at 7:00 PM. All of the artists will create a drawing prior to the game and these drawings along with all art made during the game will be auctioned off and given to the HERO INITIATIVE.

These artists may be the best in their field when it comes to 30-day deadlines, but how will they do at sketching in 60 seconds or less? Likewise, their comedian tag-team partners may be quick on their feet on stage, but when their mic is traded for a marker, will they bomb? Only one team will emerge victorious and crowned Sketch Fighter Champions.

Following the game and the auction, the Comics and Comics stand-up show will take place, featuring the best all fanboy stand-up comedy in the Multiverse from JOE STARR, RON SWALLOW, ED GREER, TIM POWERS, SCOTT LOBDELL, and TOM FRANCK.

Long Beach Comic Con 2013 Con Report!

On November 23-24th, 2013, the Long Beach Convention Center was home to the 5th annual Long Beach Comic and Horror Con! Usually held around Halloween, this show was pushed back to late November, making this one of the final comic cons of 2013! In addition to the date change, they also got rid of the Friday evening show and I believe it was the right call. Saturday was booming, with lines going out the door and a steady flow of patrons all day long! Sunday slowed down quite a bit and while still a lot of foot traffic, not enough spending.

With the usual talent of comic creators attending Long Beach, including mainstays of LBCC Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, Whilce Portacio, Tim Bradstreet, and Todd Nauck, joined by special guests Gene Ha, Carlos D’Anda, Marc Silvestri, Mark Texeira, Art Thibert, Andrew Robinson, Mark Waid, and several other awesome comic talent, LBCC did close out the 2013 con year nicely.

While Comic Cons seem to be growing every year, it seems harder and harder for each show to bring something new. I did love the fact that there was an awesome car display in the front of some of the most famous cars in pop culture, along with a lot of retailers in prominent display at the show. One thing also appreciated was that comics were far more emphasized than pop culture stars, and that’s one thing I always do appreciate at LBCC. Hopefully next year, they’ll bring over the bigger hitters in comics to really close the year with a bang. Star power does draw more crowds, and I for one would love to see LBCC thrive and succeed for the next 5 years and beyond. And now, onto some photos!

This kid is making me go crazy!




I am worthy of Mjolnir!




Kid cosplayers are so darned cute!




Pull my finger.




Best costume of the show!
