We will be covering Long Beach Comic Con 2017! LBCC is upping their game again, making it more than just another comic convention. There's a good chance I'll be spending most of my time covering the panels in "The Garage," see full program schedule here. But I'll have to choose my panels wisely to make sure I get to experience all the other exciting festivities:
- SpaceExpo fills a chunk of the show floor and an entire dedicated panel track with experts in their respected scientific fields talking about our biggest and most current findings alongside displays from actual space exploration and interactive experiments your kids (or big kids) will be talking about for weeks!
