The inaugural Long Beach Comic Con takes place in Southern California this weekend. IDW will be there with a booth located front and center in the convention hall (booth #460). And we’re going to have the following special guests at our booth:
4-5 PM: Tom Jane: In addition to promoting his directorial debut, Tom will also spend an hour alongside artist Tim Bradstreet signing copies of SHOCK FESTIVAL, a hardcover collection of hundreds of the greatest movie posters you’ve never seen. The book was created by screenwriter Stephen Romano, and Tom Jane served as the model for many of the posters, and Tim Bradstreet served as art director on many of the posters.
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2:
11 AM-12 PM and 1:45-2:45 PM: Berkeley Breathed: Berkeley will be making his first-ever comic book convention appearance, signing advance copies of his brand-new THE BLOOM COUNTY LIBRARY, VOLUME 1 hardcovers. He’ll also be on a panel from 3-4 PM in Room B, where in addition to talking about BLOOM and the new book, he’ll also be auctioning off an original Sunday strip for one fan in attendance. (Click here for BLOOM COUNTY Sunday strip raffle information.)
12-1 PM: Jimmy Palmiotti: Multi-instrumentalist Jimmy P. will be signing copies of THE LAST RESORT, his RESISTANCE trade paperback, and likely any other the hundreds of comics he’s presided over.
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3:
I’ll also be in attendance on Friday evening and Saturday, as will Special Projects Editor Scott Dunbier, Marketing/PR Manager AnnaMaria White, COO Greg Goldstein and Shipping Manager Alonzo “El Torres” Simon.
And we’ll be featuring, among other books, this special con exclusive edition of TRANSFORMERS: ALL HAIL MEGATRON #16, featuring a special “Endless Summer” rendition of the TFs by new father of twins E.J. Su. If you’re coming to the show, hope to get a chance to say hi to ya there.
