The IP Law Minute - Long Beach Comic Con 2010

Comic Con came to Long Beach again this year. For the second year in a row, the Long Beach Comic Con was held in October at the Long Beach Convention Center. Real life comic book hero Stan Lee was the Master of Ceremonies at last year's inaugural event and, according to him, even a team of super villains couldn't have kept him away from the Con this year. Not to be confused with its big, beautiful stepsister in San Diego, the Long Beach convention is a much smaller affair, with about 6,500 attendees. In comparison, about 125,000 visitors descend on San Diego every July. But, as with many things, bigger isn't necessarily better and the Long Beach Con was the perfect place to meet your favorite artist or writer -- I got to meet Amanda Conner, lead artist on Power Girl, her boyfriend and writer Jimmy Palmiotti, and even my current favorite, Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame. If you love comics, comic art, super heroes, and fans dressed in costume, put the 2011 Long Beach show on your calendar now. I'm David Baker and this is The IP Law Minute.
