Long Beach Comic Con Experience!

Long Beach Comic Con Review:

I traveled to Long Beach, California for my very first Comic Con ever, and I was asked to report, take videos, and photos to document the entire event over two days. Needless to say, if you've seen all my pictures, I had a great time. The size was perfect for me to get a feel for the whole environment without dealing with the large crowds that San Diego Comic Con is known for. The exhibit hall was a decent size to fit enough people. There were enough artist, cos-players, celebrities, and memorabilia to keep you entertained for a few hours. The only problem was that you could see everything in just a few hours, and I had a two day pass. I had to cut my first day short because I wanted to leave some stuff for the next day. I checked into my hotel for the night, excited about what there was left to see the following day for I wanted to make sure that it was even better than the first!

The one complaint I had was that I wished they mailed out tickets or badges for those who had pre-ordered their tickets. I waited in line the first day, a very long line, just to pick up my weekend pass wristband. The line snaked its way from the front door, past the performing arts building, into a parking structure, and back outside. The line took some time off some panels I wanted to see. Luckily, the panel I had circled in my program book was on Sunday, and by then I already had my pass. If you go next year, you have the option to pick up your ticket the day before the event, which was not made clear to many of us.

If you are interested in going to your first Comic Con without dealing with the madness of San Diego, this one would be a good start for you or your family. I will attempt to attend Comic Con International some day, but if I don't, I would be fine going back to this one. The next Comic event will be in LA for Stan Lee's, Comikazie Expo! I will try to attend that one, not only for the experience, but also to continue to help expand the Aristocratic Film Group! This was a good event to get our name out there, and we even gained some new followers over the weekend. If you haven't yet, check out our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages for all of my photos, and videos of the two days! (Afg.movies)
