The first ever Comikaze Expo takes place this weekend, November 5th and 6th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Billed as the largest gaming, comic, horror and multimedia pop culture convention, the event will kick off with appearances from Stan Lee and the official “spokesperson”, Elvira. This expo is expected to draw over 60,000 attendees and have more than 300 vendors on the convention floor. Tickets for the event are on pre-sale at $12 each on the Comikaze website. With each ticket, the holder will receive their choice of a celebrity lithograph photo valued between $79-$189.
Comikaze will feature several name guests and exciting panels for attendees to see and meet. There will be several cast reunions, including several members from the various police Academy films as well as a number of actors who were on the Nickelodeon (SNICK) sketch comedy show “All That.” Other guests will include a few Star Trek actors, along with Ernest Borgnine, Morgan Fairchild and Ernie Hudson.
Some of the panels of note include an “All That,” reunion taking place on Saturday afternoon, in addition to the famed comic and animation creator Jhonen Vasquez. Other panels of interest include, but are not limited to, Steampunk 101, “Team Unicorn’s Super Happy Fun Panel,” The Making SyFy’s Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files, Paleontology with Morgan Fairchild and many others catering to people’s various interests and hobbies.
Since this is the first ever Comikaze Expo, it is sure to be an event to remember. It will be like no other convention before or after because of the eclectic and diverse guest list and panel discussions. This is something that comic, movie, horror and pop culture fans don’t want to miss and with the scope and scale being so large, there is sure to be something for everyone. Hopefully with a large and positive turnout, the Comikaze Expo will become an annual event and a Los Angeles tradition.
