Happen to be in or around Southern California? The fourth annual Long Beach Comic & Horror Con is happening this weekend, Nov. 3-4, at the Long Beach Convention Center. Those who will be in attendance include Joshua Hale Fialkov, Jim McCann, Sam Humphries, Mike McKone, Brian Buccellatto, Scott Lobdell, Barbara Kesel, Howard Chaykin, Neal Adams, Marv Wolfman and more.
Programming includes an “intensive” three-hour writing workshop from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday hosted by Fialkov, joined by McCann, Buccellatto, Humphries and Rob Levin. It’s limited to 30 people, with a separate $100 entrance fee.
And hey! This year’s con will also feature a generous Newsarama presence, with Albert Ching (er, me), moderating the “Graphic Horror” panel at 11 a.m Saturday with Jesse Blaze Snider, Steve Niles and Bernie Wrightson; and Newsarama contributor Rick Marshall hosting live talk show “The Marshall Report” throughout the show.
