Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo 2013 Con Report!

On November 1st-3rd, 2013, the Los Angeles Convention Center was home to Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo! After an extremely successful first year, the guest list was even better, the show moved from the parking lot to the main floor, and even added an extra day to maximize the con! Although it was primed to be better than ever, the show this year was a bit flat compared to the previous year.
The show floor seemed a bit out of sorts, with artist alley scattered all over the place, and it lacked the charm of the first show. Friday also didn’t seem to work out for the expo, as it was mostly empty. The crowds were definitely better during the weekend, but still lacked the excitement of the inaugural show. It was still a good show, with some cool panels and some great guests, but I think the appeal with the groupon deal last year was a huge part in why families flocked to the show. And I think Friday isn’t necessary in LA, especially when people have to battle Friday and Laker game traffic. I’m looking forward to next year’s Comikaze to get better as they adjust to the growing pains of a new show, and know that the best is yet to come!

Now, on to some photos!

Wondercon 2013 Con Report!

On March 29-31, 2013, Anaheim was home to Wondercon 2013! With the decision to keep Wondercon in Anaheim this year, I couldn’t help but wonder if this was a permanent move. The numbers seem to support that decision, with record numbers attending the show, backing with CCI’s reputation of entertaining fans with celebrities, comic book superstars, and amazing vendors! In addition, it’s proximity to Disneyland is always a big plus for any guy wanting to entertain the whole family.

The show floor was bigger this year, almost replicating the 2 show floor model that ECCC used this year. Also, the huge convention center dome was used to house movie and TV stars to promote their latest works. It was definitely a well run show, and this reporter definitely had a great time talking to fans, artists, and celebrities. Wondercon definitely put on a great show, and whether it’s in Anaheim or San Francisco, and I can’t wait for next year!

Now, on to the amazing things I got to see at the show:

Welcome to Wondercon 2013!

My first stop: joining the long line of fans for the Wondercon exclusives of Mondo!

Ron Lim signing some Thanos related books in Artist Alley.

Jim Steranko signing some Nick Fury books at his booth.

Admiring the beautiful Arrow statue on display at the DC booth…

 

And then bumping into some fans on the show floor.

 

The awesome display at the Oblivion booth.

And a Rocketeer behind the banner posing for fans.

Shredder and Deadpool yelling and random people on the floor. Instant comedy.

Kristin Kreuk posing for photographers at Wondercon for Beauty and the Beast!

A Superman fan dressed up for the premiere for Superman Unbound.

Batman rogues running amuck at Wondercon.

Scott Snyder, Jim Lee, and Alex Sinclair, signing at the DC booth at the end of the day.

Marc Silvestri sketching for fans all weekend on his birthday!

Stan Lee came by and wishing Marc a happy birthday!

An amazing Witchblade cosplayer delighting Marc and his fans!

Excited fans waiting in line for Pac Rim.

I got to meet the talented artist Ethan Castillo in the Dan Slott line! Here’s a piece that was inspired by Humberto Ramos.

Dan Slott showing Scott Snyder some love at his signing.

The cast of Revolution sharing a laugh at Wondercon.

Mark Waid talking to the Boom Studios crew.

And now, onto some more cosplay pictures.

Cute dogs get so much love.
