There IS so much drama in the LBC! Mainly because Long Beach Comic Con is happening. I’m an official “guest” of the show, which is a great honor and a new experience for me – so if you see me wandering around and lost, please point me in the right direction.
More importantly, if you’re coming to the show, you’ll be able to find me at the Archie Comics booth (#303) or on many panels and signings! My full schedule is below. Do swing by and say hello!
