High High Fivers! We’re off to the First EVER Long Beach Comic Con tomorrow, here’s our plan for the weekend:
Friday: We’ll spend Friday checking out the exhibit hall, getting the lay of the land and hitting Long Beach’s gigantic artist alley. Maggie will probably hit up the Comics on Comics panel at five, and we’ll most likely be at the Comic Vine party Friday night – but I’m pretty sure that’s a dry party so we probably won’t be there for long. Seriously, unless someone spikes the punch we won’t make it til 11:30.
Saturday: Holy moly, Jonny and Maggie are gonna meet Stan Lee. Yeah, I’m freaking out too. That’s in the morning, hopefully we’re out of there in time for DC NATION at noon. Then we’re off to 50 Questions with Mark Waid (he did a practice round on his podcast, check it out!), Rob will most likely attend the Berkeley Breathed panel, and then J & M are out of there by 4, our cousin is getting married!
Sunday: Boom! Spotlight at eleven, we’re hoping for juicy details on Waid’s newest title, Incorruptible. Then maybe the Story Structure and development panel with Jeph Loeb.
The panels at Long Beach are only about 45 minutes each, I’m a little worried that they’ll all run over their alloted time, but maybe the event planners have overtime built into the schedule. If you’re local and want to go, weekend passes are $45 and day passes are $25, you can pick them up in person at the Long Beach Convention Center.
And of course we’ll be twittering the whole thing, so be sure to follow us if you’re not already!
If you find us running around at the show and you’re an out of towner, give us a high five and we’ll tell you where the good bars are, because we’re helpful like that.
