Ah Comikaze, what was once a small con in the bottom floor of the massive Los Angeles Convention center with a rocky start is now top floor entertainment laser focused on growth under the guidance of Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment.
Unlike the standard con going experience Comikaze forgoes panel rooms for a massive center stage in which to hold everything from panels and video previews to costume contests. It also featured a larger vendor and exhibitor presence than in years past and as always am delivered unto temptations past walking by many a toy I coveted as a child.
The expo takes pride on its new found focus on pop culture and this year delivered in style. This saw the return of the Stan Lee museum housing a kings ransom in statues from Bowen Designs and Sideshow Collectibles and a massive collection of original art by a cavalcade of artists. A plethora of appearances of fan favorite actors and actresses. It also featured presentations from the upcoming Hollywood SciFi Musuem who brought along vehicles as famous as their flesh and blood co-stars and the Video Game history museum which carted in a collection of nostalgia inducing arcade cabins freed from the curse of quarter consumption.
Below are select photos from the expo taken by myself and I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.
