Spread the love

Don’t cry San Diego Comic Con was in July (and you likely couldn’t get tickets) but take heart you can attend the 2013 Long Beach Horror and Comic Convention has tickets available for the November event!  If you’ve never been to a convention or can’t get tickets to SDCC live out your cosplay dreams in Long Beach!

So geek out to your hearts content with two days of geeky fun in Long Beach.  It has a different feel than SDCC but it’s a great way to get your ‘feet wet’ (so to speak) in the geek/cosplay/convention love world and the commitment is only two days.  You’ll be in the area for the holiday season so grab the kids, sister, brother, wife, husband, boyfriend and girlfriend to show them your geek style.  Introduce them to your passion, hobby or just go buy toys .. oh wait action figures!

The Long Beach Horror & Comic Con is being held on November 23 & 24, 2013 at the Long Beach Convention Center. Tickets are available using the BUY TICKETS button on this site, or at your local comic book shop. Additional details about the event can be found on the FAQ section of this site or by emailing customerservice[at]longbeachcomiccon.com.
