On the Scene: Long Beach Comics Expo Photo Extravaganza


The semi-annual Long Beach Comics Expo landed on May 11th with a substantial line-up of guests and also some smart choices in programming. Guests included Rich Avons, Joe Benitez, Brian Buccellato, Ale Garza, Joel Gomez, Ray-Anthony Height, Vince Hernandez, Drew Johnson, David Mack, Frank Mastromauro, Dustin Nguyen, Nei Ruffino and more, showing a strong representation in comics artists and a few colorists as well as a writer or two. Programming ranged from “Creating Awesome Female Characters” to focus panels on designing your own web series, writing animation, and “Marketing on a Shoe String Budget”.

It’s the one-day runner up to the falls longer and heftier Long Beach Comic Con.

Friend of The Beat, pop culture photojournalist Michele Brittany was there to tell the tale in pictures for us good folks who couldn’t make it to the show:
