The 2012 Long Beach Comic & Horror Con returns this weekend to the Long Beach Convention Center. This semi-annual expo of comics, video games, anime, manga, and more features everything fans love about the respective genre, and this weekend’s expo ties in with Halloween to create a Comic & Horror Con. In addition to the typical cosplayers, expect to see more gore throughout the expo. Attendees get to experience interacting with other fans, merchandise, art exhibits, artist autographs, and so much more. Tickets cost $25 to attend Saturday, and $20 to attend Sunday. The convention center’s parking usually costs $10 for all-day parking – I suggest scanning the area for cheaper parking, taking public transportation, or parking in the neighborhoods east of Alamitos Ave and walking to the expo.

Planning to attend in costume? Take part in a Comic Con group photo on Saturday morning, complimentary with paid admission! Costumed attendees should meet at the top of the main stairs to the convention center at 8:30am to check in and register, and the photographing takes place between 8:45am and 9:15am. Participants will even obtain recognition during the expo’s opening ceremony! I will definitely try to make it to this group photo, so I hope to see you there.
