It’s time once again for Los Angeles Comic Con, one of our favorite conventions of the year! This amazing convention is returning to the Los Angeles Convention center!
Last year’s convention boasted a much larger footprint with dedicated sections for video gaming, which included freeplay, demo spaces, streamer stations, and an interactive stage for people to be introduced to streamers, and engage with them!
We even ran into the gang from The Warp Zone.
This year they will redouble their efforts to create an even more inclusive and fun gaming space, while also still hosting the exhibitors you love, and dedicating attention to panels and their main stage programming.
As far as exhibitors go, there are some pretty amazing ones returning to the Convention. Here are some of our favorites and what you can expect:
Eric & Julia Lewald
Are you a fan of the ultimate in child animation series? Well the showrunners of the X-Men series from our childhood will be at the event. You can meet them and connect over your love for the series!
We always stop by GizmoForge every year at Wondercon and Los Angeles Comic Con. Their figures and accessories are great for the nerd in your life. Whether it’s a keepsake for your con visit or an upcoming gift event.
Taking keys into fun ways, Hero’s Armory made mythical and fun weapons of video games into specialty keys. They then moved onto USB drives, Tie Pins, and even ties! So many cool items to pick up. Find out more about them Here.
We make it a point to always stop by this booth every year! While they have so many amazing chocolates to purchase, we always purchase the Habanero Truffles! Find out more about them Here.
This awesome booth sells stickers and shirts. I will specifically say only one booth makes the shirts though, so make sure you check out the other one, if you are intending to pick one up. Find out more about them Here.
Booth #434 & #438
Wild Bill’s Craft Beverage Co.
If you love rootbeer, then you should definitely purchase a mug at these booths. The mug comes with root beer throughout the day. If you bring your mug back to future events where they are found, you can purchase another refill for the day or full event. Find out more about them Here.
Booth #1256 & #2001
Los Angeles Comic Con has the main stage, which features some of the most loved entertainment of their convention, but they also have small room panels as well. While the main stage can be seen from all the way to the end of the halls, if standing in the right place, the panels fill up and close their doors, so here are some of our favorites that you should get in line for!
