Join Fanboy Comics and SoCal’s Indie Creators at Long Beach Comic Expo 2014

The Fanboy Comics staff is very excited to be exhibiting at Long Beach Comic Expo next weekend, alongside a number of other talented independent creators! Taking place on Saturday, May 31st, and Sunday, June 1st, 2014, at the Long Beach Convention Center, the annual event is a celebration of comic books and pop culture that showcases the exceptional works of talented writers, artists, illustrators, and creators of all pop culture genres.  The popularity of the event has caused it to expand to two days this year, allowing for even more geeky fun!

Fans in attendance will have a chance to stop by the Fanboy Comics table (Artist's Alley #8002) to meet the creators of the graphic novels The Arcs, Something Animal, Identity Thief, and FBC's upcoming title, Penguins vs. Possums: Volume One! (Fanboy Comics' creator signing schedule may be found below.)  As a special treat, advance copies of Penguins vs. Possums: Volume One will be available for sale in advance of the June 4th release date! Attendees will also be able to purchase the official Fanboy Comics t-shirt, so that they can show their geek pride in style.

In addition, you will not want to miss the Indie Creators, Unite! A Guide to Self-Publishing panel taking place on Sunday, June 1st, at 1:30 p.m. in Room 202A, where LA-based independent comic book creators will discuss their own experiences in self-publishing, providing sage advice for creators interested in doing the same. Moderated by Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon, the panelists will include Gavin Hignight [Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TV), The Concrete World], Daniel Corey (Red City, Moriarty), Yehudi Mercado (Pantalones, TX, Buffalo Speedway), Siike Donnelly (Monomyth, Solestar), and Fanboy Comics President Bryant Dillon (Identity Thief, Something Animal). 

Attendees will also find a plethora of other independent comic book creators on the showroom floor! Author Justin Robinson (Get Blank, Mr. Blank, Everyman) will be exhibiting in Artist's Alley (#3012) with copies of his latest book, Get Blank.  (You can always spot his booth by looking for the red banner and the question mark!)  In addition, Joshua Hauke (Tales of the Brothers Three) and David Scott Smith (www.spacebase8.com) will be at Artist's Alley Table #3000 providing free sketches for attendees that purchase a copy of their books. Creator/writer Kristopher White of The 36 and Father Robot will be in the signing area on Saturday from 1-2 p.m. and on Sunday from 2-3 p.m.  He will also be hosting two panels: on Saturday at 11:30 a.m - Gerry Conway Spotlight (Room 201A) and on Sunday at 1:00 p.m - Whilce Portactio Spotlight (Room 202C).
