LA Comic Con Celebrates 12th Annual Event, Hosting 122,000 Fans for a Diverse and Electrifying Experience

Recently, Los Angeles’s greatest comics, gaming, sci-fi, and pop culture convention, the LA Comic Con celebrated its 12th annual show with the biggest and best yet, being the most diverse and involving one ever had.

The LA Convention Center hosted about 122,000 visitors between the 1st to 3rd of December where they witnessed unique talents, art, and entertainment.

CEO Chris DeMoulin, from Comikaze Entertainment, the parent company of L.A. Comic Con, expressed the significance of representing the eclectic and diverse nature of creativity in Los Angeles. “Los Angeles fans deserve a show that represents them and speaks to the eclectic, wonderful, and diverse nature of creativity in our town,” 

 “L.A. is the creative capital of the world, and we try to offer something that will resonate with you no matter what stripe of fandom you represent — from mainstream pop culture to activations around what is new and emerging, from comics to movies and TV to video games and anime. This year, all the fans, exhibitors, artists, talent, and cosplayers brought their A-game because the energy at the Convention Center was electric all weekend long — inspiring us to continue to try to improve the fan experience year after year. We’re privileged to serve a community of fans who want to celebrate their favorite stories, creators, games, and art with fellow fans and make lifelong memories through our halls.” continued DeMoulin. 

There was a lot of electric energy in the air at the Los Angeles Convention Center this year! Fans, exhibitors, artists, talents, and cosplayers came all out! The convention had more than one thousand artists and vendors including a record number of artists—400+—in the biggest of the Artist Alleys at US Cons and allowed authors to share their works of art with amateurs.

Some of the most popular personalities graced the main stage panels. More than 10,000 people attended the nostalgic reunion from the famous Lord of the Rings panel, led by Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Dominic Monaghan, and Billy Boyd. These included Harry Potter stars Bonnie Wright, James Phelps, and Oliver Phelps, The Office celebrities Rainn Wilson and Paul Lieberstein, and an intriguing interview featuring Doctor Who star Matt Smith.

The L.A. Comic Con encompassed more than 1.2 million square feet and, as a consequence, West Hall was utilized for interactive gaming and anime. It included an introduction of esports tournaments that feature FGC greats like Justin Wong, Punk, and Alex Jebailey for the convention. Participants had their chance to challenge the gaming champions such as Mortal Kombat or Street Fighter.

Beyond the main stage and the gaming arenas, there were plenty of experiences for fans such as autograph sessions, the 8th Annual Cosplay National Championships, and portfolio reviews by Marvel Comic’s talent scout Rickey Purdin. The event also had the defending MLS Cup champions Los Angeles Football Club joining for a meet and greet.

The appearance of the best worldwide artists and a creator also included in the list was such names as Ryan Ottley, Skottie Young, and Jim Cheung. This only confirms the status of this event as the largest and greatest multimedia pop culture convention in LA.
