Anyone else going? I'll most likely go pending on when my finals are the week after.

Consider volunteering at the con. A good friend of mine did it, and she had a blast. Because it's a small convention, there's definitely a different sense of community (as compared to the larger SDCCI one, which is awesome in its own way).  ^_^d

I'd rather pay the $15 to maximize my time there, as you have to work half the con as a volunteer. Its not like we have to pay SDCC prices...

*nod nod* Ah, yes, that's true.  I guess it really depends on what each person likes to do at con. ^_^;

The Long Beach Comic Expo is *very* small (one small ballroom), but it is very slick and very well put together.  However for me personally, it was not worth the drive from San Diego as a back issue collector with them only having 5 or so comic vendors.  If I lived closer, I would definitely check it out.

The Long Back Comic Con full show in Nov is a *great* show for the comic collector and reminded me of a much smaller version of what CCI was back in the day.

I may end up going to this, DEVO is playing at the pony races at Hollywood Park Friday nite, and their races go pretty late. I may be "trapped" in the area and have to go. Just have to...

I heard that last year they had a Grease singalong with some of the movie actors, and the Batmobile was there! Those would have made it worthwhile for me, if I didn't have to fly. :(
