MAD Event Management and Long Beach Comic Con will stage the one-day event in the Convention Center’s Promenade Ballroom from 10:00 a.m. – 7:00 p.m., and entrance to the floor for the day is a reasonable $10. Comic and comic-related companies will include Lionsgate (producers of many Marvel animated features, including the new Planet Hulk), Aspen, Top Cow, Com.X, High Tower, Comic Madness, Graphitti Designs, Freedonia Funnyworks and Metropolis Comics.
