SUNDAY OCTOBER 30th, 2011
This day seemed a lot busier; I never saw the attendance numbers.
Definitely more people dressed as their favorite characters compared to Saturday. A boisterous crowd rumbled into the halls early Sunday and I was pitching the premise of the comic and movie all day at my booth.
BLACKSTAR CANYON artist Josh Alves got to meet Joe Weems and the staff of Aspen Comics after signing and discussing the BLACKSTAR comic for several hours.
At 1 pm: Kyle, Dan, Dusty, and Emilio of Stellar Corpses from Santa Carla,
I mean Santa Cruz, arrived. Well rested after the previous nights
concert at the Grove with Tiger Army, the band was welcomed by the
onslaught of fans after the showrunners announced their guest appearance.
Several interviews later, the Corpses and I took pictures with Scream Queen Brenna aka "Cherrybomb". (Thanks to KC and Hart Fisher, and Phil Lawrence,
Mike Scigliano, and Martha Donato and the tireless staff and crew for longbeachcomiccon.com!)
Overall, very exhausting- but a terrific time spent for the Halloween Weekend promoting the movie and comic book prequel for BLACKSTAR CANYON!
NOV. 5TH AND 6TH-SEE YOU AT THE LA CONVENTION CENTER!
