Every year Long Beach Comic Expo steps it up to make the convention experience seem more personal. In a sea of large and faceless events, LBCE always feels like home with familiar faces, guests and fan groups.
This year LBCE is going to have a large variety of interesting panels. Some of the highlights of the programming are:
- Captain Marvel: Origins: A look at Captain Marvel, Carol Danvers, with two of the writers who know her best: Gerry Conway, who introduced the “Ms. Marvel” version of Carol in the 1970s Ms. Marvel comic series; and bestselling novelist Margaret Stohl, whose The Life of Captain Marvel comic retold the character’s history as a lead-in to the upcoming feature film starring Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson.
- Space Expo: A con-within-a-con experience that’s all about space exploration and hands-on STEM education! Featuring experts in their respective scientific fields, kids (and kids-at-heart) can have fun with science-based interactive experiments! Space Expo‘s Guests of Honor are NASA InSight scientist Farah Alibay and NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory engineer Troy Lee Hudson.
- C3 Presents: Comics: Breaking In and Staying In: The road to a career in comics and the creative arts can take many twists and turns — and they don’t stop once you get in. Join Marvel Comics publisher John Nee, DC Comics/Valiant Comics/Lion Forge editor Joseph Illidge, artist James Jameson (American Gods), and cartoonist Javier Hernandez (El Muerto) for a riveting discussion of the different ways they’ve developed their careers.
- Women on the Dark Side: Not all female artists and creators are about unicorns and glittery vampires. Hosted by Anne Toole (HALO: Lone Wolf), Kate Jonez (author, Santa Muerte), Susan Lee (Wraith of Love), and Madeleine Holly-Rosing (Boston Metaphysical Society), attendees can get some critical insight from women who create truly dark and challenging art and content, with just a touch of humor and whimsy. Whether it’s comic books, novels, or art, these are the women who are creating content that connects with our deeper, darker side.
