Stan Lee, Speed Racer, Gumby, and Classic Comic Book Artists Featured at The Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention on May 4, 2008

It's back after two months! The LOS ANGELES COMIC BOOK AND SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION will be held onMAY 4. The Shrine Auditorium wasn't available to book on the dates needed, so that's why the hiatus. This next show again features Super Guests and a Great Dealers Room.

STAN LEE, the Co-Creator of SPIDER-MAN, IRON MAN, INCREDIBLE HULK, X-MEN, DAREDEVIL, and many otherMARVEL COMICS SUPER-HEROES, appears 12:00 P.M.-1:00 P.M. to sign all copies purchased at the Convention of his new book, ELECTION DAZE: WHAT THEY'RE REALLY SAYING.

ELECTION DAZE will appeal to readers of all political parties, as STAN adds his style of humor on word balloons next to photos of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Rudy Giulani, and political celebrities such as Stephen Colbert, George Clooney, and Michael Moore. With every purchase at the Convention of ELECTION DAZE, which retails for only $10.00, STAN will sign ONE additional item that you bring him at no charge (free) so dust off that
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN#1. And you get 96 pages of ELECTION DAZE fun by STAN! Because of the tight schedule of one hour for signing, the above signing policy will have to be enforced so everyone can get an autograph. STAN will not be posing for pictures with the public because there's no time, but you can take pictures of STAN while he's signing. STAN'sjust signed a deal to develop new titles for Virgin Comics, and three film ideas for Disney. So STAN has to get back to work, somebody's got to write this stuff!

CORINNE ORR was the voice of TRIXIE, SPRITLE, and all the female characters on the Classic SPEED RACER animated series of the 1960's. CORINNE also did voices for STAR BLAZERS, BATMAN BEYOND, ULTRAMAN,MARINE BOY, SAMURAI JACK,and many others. CORINNE has a cameo in the new SPEED RACER Live Action film, and to celebrate the occassion,the Convention is flying her into Los Angeles from New York just for this Special Appearance. CORINNE will be signing autographs all day, and while there is a reasonable charge, it includes a choice of a photo or postcard.

ART CLOKEY, the Creator of TV's GUMBY, appears to sign the new GUMBY TRADE PAPERBACK compiled from the Wildcard Ink Comic Book series, from 12:00 P.M.-1:00 P.M. Also appearing will be GUMBY himself, and HOLLY HARMAN, the voice of MINGA. The GUMBY TABLE will have FREE GIVE-AWAYS while supplies last such as a GUMBY BENDY, BUTTON, BOOKMARK, POSTCARD, and MOVIE POSTER.


Everyone will receive a free UNCANNY X-MEN large size poster (with art by Greg Land) and a small IRON MAN MOVIE POSTER featuring the different phases of IRON MAN's Armor while supplies last!

Many New Dealers are signing up, as well as Dealers who haven't done the show in several years who are returning. As more and more Dealers feel the financial squeeze as ebay raises their fees, and some collector shows also raise rates, theLOS ANGELES COMIC BOOK AND SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION has had the same reasonable table rates unchanged for the past ten years. This allows the Dealers to give you a better deal. And Dealers are always encouraged to bring fresh new stock, and NOT the same stuff. For more program information check
