Long Beach Comic Con announces first round of guests

One of the biggest cons on the west coast, the Long Beach Comic Con is just about here and the first round of guests has been officially announced. And there’s also a pretty neat little deal in it for you if you love the great blue sea.

“This will be the biggest Long Beach Comic Expo ever. Throughout the month of February, as we lead into the show, fans will hear more about our stellar programming including the second annual Dwayne McDuffie Awards and the return of the Columbia Memorial Space Center innovative Space Expo,” said Martha Donato, Long Beach Comic Expo Executive Director and Co-Founder. “And we’re thrilled to announce that, for the first time ever, Long Beach Comic Expo attendees can receive one discounted admission ticket for the popular Aquarium of the Pacific when they present their official badge at the Aquarium ticket windows.”

So there’s a nice twofer there for you if you’re set to visit the LBCC. Head to the con, enjoy yourself, and then visit the aquarium and chill out for a bit. Pretty nice weekend all in all. And that deal is good for the weekend of Comic Con or the weekend after, so you have a few chances to make use of the deal.

Aside from 150 dealers, Animation Island, Cosplay Corner, and a special Comic Expo Costume Contest just for kids, there’s also a pretty impressive list of guests that’s been announced for the con, which is set to open it’s doors near the end of the month. All in all, you’ll see over 100 special guests at the show, including:

  • Chris Claremont
  • Amanda Connor
  • Terry and Rachel Dodson
  • Joshua Hale Fialkov
  • Agnes Garbowska
  • Paul Jenkins
  • Scott Kolins
  • Jae Lee
  • Aaron Lopresti
  • Fabien Nicieza
  • Michael Avon-Oeming
  • Jimmy Palmiotti
  • James Tynion IV

Long Beach Comic Con opens on February 20th at 10am (closing at 7pm) and then continues into Sunday the 21st, when it’ll be open from 10am till 5pm. Tickets are available right now at this link.
