A New Comikaze Expo Poster!

The following is from the Comikaze website! It looks like a good convention is coming in November at the Los Angeles Convention Center! Comics, Anime, Gaming, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Horror? Cool! I wonder how many other posters will be released…

Attention all you Bruce Campbell, and Comikaze Expo fans. Check out the Newest Comikaze Expo Poster.

We are proud to present the newest edition of our 2011 Comikaze Expo posters. In celebration of Bruce Campbell’s birthday, we thought that this would be the perfect time to unveil THE ASH-TOPUS.

This work of wonder was created by the talented and hilarious Bailee DesRocher , co-creator and illustrator of the pun-tastic new web comic PMS Adventures. You can come meet Bailee and her writing partner Lauren Pottinger at Comikaze Expo this November 5-6 2011.

You can find the Ash-Topus hanging out in comic stores throughout Los Angeles. Don’t forget, kids; these posters are collectors items, and we have new ones up every week. So treat them like Pokemon and CATCH EM ALL!

WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO FIND THESE POSTERS, TAKE THEM DOWN, AND PHOTOGRAPH THEM IN THEIR NEW HOME. JUST TELL US WHERE YOU TOOK IT FROM SO WE CAN REPLACE IT FOR THE NEXT PERSON.

Wizard World Inc. Announces Los Angeles Comic Con!

Famed Brazilian Artist Mike Deodato Jr. To Be Premier Guest of Honor!

NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, April 29, 2011 – Gareb Shamus, President and CEO of Wizard World, Inc. (WIZD) (“Wizard World”), today announced the addition of a Los Angeles Comic Con to Wizard World’s 2011 lineup. The show will take place on Sept. 24-25, 2011 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Superstar Mike Deodato Jr. is the first guest of honor at the event. The Brazilian artist, well known for his work on The Amazing Spider-Man, Captain America, The Mighty Thor, Wolverine, X-Men, The Avengers, and Batman, will be making a rare U.S. appearance.

“We are ecstatic to come to the rejuvenated downtown area of Los Angeles to celebrate the best of pop culture – graphic novels, TV, movies, toys, games, genre properties and of course, comic books,” said Shamus. “You can always trust Wizard World to bring the most diverse and robust collection of artists, writers, creators and celebrities anywhere.”

Clare Kramer, of Buffy: The Vampire fame, will also be in attendance. A popular guest at several of the Wizard World Tour stops, Kramer will be on hand to meet fans, sign autographs and take photos. “When I found out that Wizard World was coming to Los Angeles, I was so excited. They are one of the most professionally run organizations out there, and I just love every minute of it,” said Clare Kramer. “The fans, Wizard World, guests and vendors always have a blast at these shows, which is why I keep coming back for more!”

This event brings more of what the fans love about the Wizard World Tour. “There is a real need for a Fall event that encompasses all the best that pop culture has to offer,” said Mike Mathews, Chairman of Wizard World Inc. “We’re listening to our customers and giving them the show they’re asking for located in the entertainment mecca.”

The Big Apple Comic Con, which had been previously scheduled on those dates, will be permanently moved to the Spring. The 2011 Big Apple Comic Con Spring Edition remains set for May 21-22 at Penn Plaza Pavilion. As part of the realignment, Wizard World is also rescheduling the planned 2011 Atlanta Comic Con, with dates to be announced. The full event schedule can be found at www.wizardworld.com.
