The first annual Long Beach Comic Con has already come and gone, but what a blast it was! Comic book legend, Stan Lee got the show started with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and afterwards, fans were rushing in to meet their favorite creators as soon as the doors opened.
The first fan in line for Jim was cute, little Mari and her brother Akino who've fast become experienced sketch hounds scoring one great sketch after another. Just check out the pieces below to see for yourself:
Saturday morning, Jim Lee and Stan Lee did an exclusive "Meet & Greet" with some lucky fans who they had a chance to hear some cool stories and literally be a fly in the room as Jim and Stan shared many laughs.
The beautiful weather outside and the great location by the water made Long Beach feel like a mini-San Diego Comic-Con and the show floor was packed on Saturday with fans. Unfortunately, I completely missed seeing a number of creators, like "Bloom County" creator, Berkeley Breathed.
After the show, some of us headed down to a local restaurant for some great BBQ and a full stomach before the 2-hour drive back home to San Diego. I know I'm already looking forward to second helping next year!
