    LBCC 2010 Con Report!

    Long Beach Comic Con held it’s 2nd annual convention at the Long Beach Convention Center on Halloween weekend this year. With the success of the inaugural show, I was a bit disappointed to see a smaller crowd this year. The show did have some strong guests, featuring fan favorites J. Scott Campbell, Amanda Conner, Tim Sale, and Mike Mignola. However, it seemed that Halloween weekend proved that it’s the kids and family aspect that drive people to come, and can really dictate the success of a show. The people that did attend had a wonderful time, meeting their favorite creators, buying some show exclusives, and enjoying the Halloween festivities with costumes galore.

    Now onto some pictures from LBCC!

    Yoda greets you at the front of the Long Beach Convention Center.
