Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention This Sunday, May 4, 2008 with Stan Lee, Corinne Orr, Art Clokey, Gumby, and Comic Book Artists Tony Dezuniga, Ernie Chan, and Alex Nino!

Ever go to a collectibles show and pay twenty dollars or more admission and be disappointed after all the hype that the Dealers Room was small and that there just wasn't any variety? The LOS ANGELES COMIC BOOK AND SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION, taking place this SUNDAY, MAY 4, is a nice example of a show with a reasonable admission of only $8.00, a Dealers Room with 150 tables+ of Comic Books, Toys, and other collectibles, and some super give-aways. What's fun about shopping at this show is that you're sure to find something that fits your budget. As mentioned in the last email, there are many new and returning Dealers with great stuff. Casilli has anime merchandise, Shop West has great Cartoon T-Shirts, Benjamin Holcomb, the writer of MEGO 8" Super-Heroes: World's Greatest Toys!, will have three tables of vintage 70's and 80's toys (and he will sign copies of his great photo book on the history of MEGO, one of the largest producers of super-hero toys in the 1970's), Phat Collectibles, Anime Link, Cine-East, David's Comic Book Store, Aladdin Books, and so many, many more.

GREAT GIVE-AWAYS! Everyone will receive while supplies last, a free IRON MAN Movie Mini-Poster, a large size UNCANNY X-MEN Poster (by Artist Greg Land). It looks like the Premium Admission will include aFULL SIZE MOVIE POSTER from SPEED RACER, GET SMART, and a new fantasy film THE FALL. Check the sign posted outside the Shrine for updates.
