· I am happy to announce the inaugural LA Ultimate Comic Art & Collectibles Show on July 15, 2018 brought to you by Big Wow Art, the Prop Store of London, and Cherry Blossom Explosion. It is the first official comic art convention in California! · This event is designed for serious collectors in Los Angeles as well as those travelling in to get a preview of the art that is being brought out to the West Coast for San Diego. In addition, there will be additional dealers who will not be set up in San Diego showcasing their art and collectibles. We truly believe that this be “the” yearly event that serious collectors from all over will want to attend. · For people who want a great California vacation, you can explore places like Santa Monica, Malibu, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills, all within 30 minutes to an hour away. For those that are coming in for San Diego the following week, it’s easy enough to fly into LA for this event and take the train or drive down to San Diego later in the week. What’s Different About This Show? · First, you won’t find dollar comic boxes, t-shirts, assorted doo-dads, or an array of cosplayers at this show. This show is focused on higher-end collectibles for the “ultimate” collector. · Although this show has a focus on the comic art, you’ll find dealers there with other very cool related high-end collectibles like Illustration Art and authentic Film/TV props that you may want to consider adding to your collection. · We will be documenting the show digitally, recording professional videos of the art and collectibles on display at the show. Ideally you’ll be at the show to see things live, but for those who can’t, we plan to release videos from the show later in the week for all to see. Who Are the Special Guests? · Frank Cho and Gerhard will be our two special guest artists for the show. Each will be taking commissions. Gerhard will also be debuting some original vintage Cerebus pages from his personal collection for sale at the show for the first time. · Mark Schultz will also be appearing courtesy of Flesk Publications. · Additional artists will be announced as they are confirmed. What Are the Logistics? · More detailed information about the LA Ultimate Comic Art & Collectibles Show including an up-to-date list of dealers that will be set up can be found on the show’s website: www.UltimateLAShow.com. · The event will take place at the LAX Hilton located at 5711 West Century Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA on Sunday July 15, 2018. The event will be open to the public from 10AM until 5PM. · The Hilton is within 5 minutes of the LAX airport to make it easy for people to fly-in and out for the event. The hotel has free shuttles to and from the airport. · In addition to the LA Ultimate Comic Art & Collectibles Show, your admission will also get you into the Torpedo Comics Collectors Convention (www.torpedocomics.com) with over 5,000 square feet of premium comic book dealers in the next convention hall over.

Steranko at Windy City Pulp & Paper Convention April 21-23, 2017 The legendary Jim Steranko will be the Guest of Honor at the upcoming Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention, taking place at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center from Friday, April 21 through Sunday, April 23, 2017. Steranko is a legend not only in the comics field – for his groundbreaking work as an artist and a historian – but in the pulp field as well, with his depictions of several classic pulp heroes, from The Shadow to Doc Savage to Sherlock Holmes to G-8 and many more. Steranko will be present throughout the show, and will also be speaking Friday night at 7:00 p.m. As this year’s show is the same weekend as C2E2 (also in the Chicagoland area), C2E2 attendees may want to head to Lombard to complete their weekend. This year’s event also celebrates the Red Circle line of pulps. These were the first publications put out by Martin Goodman, who later would launch the Timely line of comics that eventually became Marvel. The program book is packed with material on Steranko, the Red Circle line, gangster pulps, and more! The cover is attached. The convention also features over 150 tables of pulps, vintage paperbacks, comics, original comic and illustration art, and other related goodies for sale in its massive dealer room. Movies based on pulp stories will be playing throughout the day on Friday and Saturday, while the New Pulp movement will host a variety of panels on Sunday. And Friday and Saturday nights will feature two incredible estate auctions, featuring thousands of pulps, including nearly 200 issues of The Shadow, as well as many other rare pulps. Admission is $35 for all three days, $25 for Friday only, $25 for Saturday only, and $10 for Sunday only. Ages 13 and under admitted free with parent. Hours are Friday 11:00 a.m. to midnight, Saturday 10:00 a.m. to midnight and Sunday 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The convention is being held at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center, 70 Yorktown Center, Lombard IL 60148.
