The Mini-Convention Inside Stan Lee's L.A. Comic Con

This weekend in Los Angeles is Stan Lee's L.A. Comic Con and while the show is going to be filled with all sorts of pop culture goodness, I wanted to focus on one specific area… the Comic Bug Pavilion. This is such a great idea. Mike Wellman, writer, retailer and co-owner of the Comic Bug, has an area of the show that takes up 3 or 4 aisles where he gets to invite 30 comic guests for the show. It's like a mini-convention inside the convention.

Plus The Sketchy Bugs! The Comic Bugs own local indy comic artist community will be rotating through the Sketchy Bug booth with their various books all weekend! There's about 15 of them, I believe, that will be participating.

And if those names aren't enough… they also have Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, Stan lee, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Rose McIver, David Anders, Pee Wee Herman, Scott Bakula, Drew Carey, Marc Silvestri, Todd McFarlane, Greg Capullo, Neal Adams, Tom King, Kevin Smith and Gary Fisher (the canine companion of the late Carrie Fisher).

To go along with the Comic Bug Pavilion, you can also save some money on admission by using the promo code: BUG! So, if you're looking for something fun and comic related this weekend, check out Stan Lee's Los Angeles Comic Con.
