By: Jay Snook
Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo is this weekend and its the event to attend! We all know that Lee is partly responsible for so many well-known comic book characters that even non-comic book fans are aware of. However, The expo is just rising in popularity. This is the fifth year the expo happening and it promises to be the biggest and best one yet. Stan Lee heads this convention each year with Elvira ‘Mistress of the Dark,‘ and it is the only pop culture convention that is run and operated by the icons themselves. In 2014, this convention attracted over 62,000 attendees from all over the world and this year it is expected for that number to jump again.
The guest list is huge with people like Carrie Fisher (Princes Leia, Star Wars), Stan Lee himself, Summer Glau (Firefly), Phil Lamarr (Futurama), Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek), Manu Bennett (The Hobbit) and Elvira. There will also be Kel Mitchell, Danny Tamberelli, Josh Server, Agenlique Bates, Alisa Reyes, Lisa Foiles, and Katrina Johnson from the hit Nickelodeon show All That. There will also be a ton of comic book creators and artists and many other people that fans will be excited to meet.
This year the convention will be going on from October 31 until November 1 at the Los Angeles Convention Center and there will be over 200 panels to attend. They range from topics dealing with TV shows, comics, movies, and video games. With the help of the whole team they have created an event that even the most casual comic book fan will enjoy.
