The third Annual Long Beach Comic (and Horror) Con has come to a close. It was another fun show with better attendance and wider variety of panels than last year. Surprisingly, there where even panels aimed at self-publishing and marketing indie comics. Very cool!
What I enjoyed most about the con is the good mix of established and up-and-coming creators. I get my mainstream fix without the massive crowds of San Diego and also get to meet other local indie writers and artists. It's also a great con for my binding hobby. Since we drive to Long Beach it isn't a chore to bring my binds, when I'm at the con it's easy to get a signature and then drop the book off at the hotel, and there's a decent amount of fifty cent and one dollar bins. All in all, a fun show. We've gone all three years and I looking forward to a fourth!
