Comikaze Entertainment, the operator behind the largest multimedia pop culture, comic book, horror, anime and gaming convention in Los Angeles, have partnered with world renowned pop culture icon Stan Lee and his company POW! Entertainment. With a 40,000 attendee turnout and over 300 exhibitors during its 2011 debut, this one-of-a-kind-expo was promptly recognized and embraced by attendees, the comic convention industry, and the greater LA area, prompting LA Weekly to name Comikaze Expo the “Best New Convention”.
Hosted at the Los Angeles Convention Center on September 15-16th 2012, the newly named ‘Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo presented by POW! Entertainment,’ promises a larger premier experience for attendees this year with an amazing line-up of attractions from vendors, exciting interactive contests, tons of celebrity autograph signings, the addition of movie screenings, panel sessions and gaming tournaments. Comikaze Expo will also join other major Stan Lee and POW! Entertainment endeavors such as the release of Lee’s dedicated digital hub TheRealStanLee.com with EQAL, 1821’s Romeo & Juliet: The War and Stan Lee’s Kids Universe, A2 & Archie Comics’ Stan Lee’s Mighty Seven, and Stan Lee’s World of Heroes YouTube channel with Vuguru.
“The inauguration of Comikaze Expo demonstrated the mighty appetite and eager response from fans to experience a Los Angeles-based event that provides a variety of comic book and pop culture entertainment,” said Stan Lee, Founder and Chief Creative Officer of POW! Entertainment. “We saw an opportunity to creatively take this event to new heights through our partnership and we seized it!”
