Stan Lee's Comikaze Expo 2012 has come and gone, and already the comic book and geek culture aficionados who attended the two-day event are eagerly awaiting next year's show. I showed up to Comikaze on day one to check out as much as I could. Sadly, it's practically impossible to see everything in two days, let alone one. That said, Comikaze really was an outstanding show.
Taking place at the LA Convention Center (the current home of E3), Stan Lee's comics extravaganza offered a lot for fans of comics, but it also catered to video game lovers, steampunk enthusiasts, TV and movie buffs, anime fans, artists, and even social media practitioners.
Comikaze was a true spectacle for fans, vendors, big name stars alike. Check out some photos straight from the show. Really, though, these images just scratch the surface as far as everything that Comikaze had to offer. Even so, I'd like to share a glimpse of what it held in store. And if you're in LA next year in November, you should definitely attend Comikaze.
