Nerdbot Convention Reviews: Los Angeles Comic Con 2018
Los Angeles Comic Con is an annual event held every year in the Los Angeles convention center, bringing people of all walks of life together. The event itself isn’t just catered to comic fans. But to anyone who has an interest in what is considered “nerdy” or “geeky” stuff. But it isn’t just for that as well LACC (LA Comic Con) is a great place to bring your friends, family, or even date. It’s an overall fun experience and everyone who’s anyone should come to see what all hype is about.
This year was a major improvement in comparison to last years event. Right off the bat the most noticeable thing was the main stage; for the past few years they’ve had it on the right side of the convention center. But this year it was right dab in the center of the convention so it was easier to get too. For a lot of the front runners they had a ton of Marvel stars as well as Steven Universe voice actors. Which got fans to go crazy. Both fan bases were as equally loud and excited to see their favorite stars in person. A great way they improved from last year was having the main headliners there for a quite some time. As opposed to last year when some people literally came and left.
If you’re a fan of Danny Trejo and love the guy, he was there! And let’s be honest who doesn’t love that man. Or if you just really love the Power Rangers you could see one of many there in person. The list could go on and on with all the guests they had, but this year was next level improvement. Love anime and cartoons? Because they had tons of American voice actors and actresses who were more than happy to have a meet and greet with fans. They set the bar pretty high this year. I can’t wait to see who they invite next year.
They had tons of vendors and artist giving away some amazing stuff. For prices that’ll have you thinking you’re stealing from them. With all the time and effort these artists put into their work, it’s easy to get lost in it. If you want some comics all you have to do is look and you’re guaranteed to find current reads for super cheap. Or even some super rare ones that you had a hard time hunting will almost be there just waiting for you. Going in with a set budget is going to take a lot of willpower to keep up with all the amazing things you’ll find inside the con.
It was pretty hard to not have a good time, there was so much to do. All the panels they had were great. Although it did suck that some of them were happening at the same time. Making you choose between one or the other. But other than that they were great!
This year was definitely one of best events LA had to offer and next year will be just as fun. As previously stated before, if you can attend this event you should!
With all that being said it was a 9/10
