Stan Lee was honored today by the city of Los Angeles. Recognizing him for his decades-longs contributions to the city’s entertainment industry, Los Angeles decided to give Stan his very own day – “Stan Lee Day.” In recognition of the honor, “Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo,” the three-day convention held in LA since 2011, will now officially be renamed “Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con.”
Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con is Los Angeles’ biggest multi-media pop culture convention. Held annually at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the event assembles the most exciting and innovative in comics, video games, sci-fi, fantasy, horror and all things pop-culture. In 2015, the event attracted over 76,000 attendees from around the country for its fifth year in 2015. With a mission to salute L.A.’s unparalleled creative community engaged in the production of movies, television, comic books, video games and other forms of pop culture entertainment, Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con’s unique panels, autograph sessions and photo-ops give fans once-in-a-lifetime opportunities to truly interact with their favorite creators and major players in the entertainment industry.
This year’s gala three-day convention takes place October 28-30 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
