Welcome to Comikaze, how may I blow your mind?
Yes, Virginia, there IS a Santa Claus and next November there WILL be a Los Angeles comic con, the Comikaze.
Siblings Regina and Mario Carpinelli spent their formative years growing up in So. Cal loving all things related to the world of comics, gaming, horror, sci-fi, fantasy, and anime, so with the help of close friends Klaus Moeller and Shelle Mannion (who also happen to be big comic book fans) they’ve joined forces to create what they feel has been missing from good 'ol Los Angeles.
Comikaze is staking the claim that they will be unlike any other comic-related event in the entire US and “Having spent much time researching the top conventions in the United States, the Comikaze Team promises an event that will thrill and excite even the most casual comic book fan.”
Tall order but curiously strong, right?
Comikaze also looks toward philanthropy as a percentage of all proceeds from Comikaze will go to the Amazon Foundation, a favorite charity of the the staff.
Relax, kids. SDCC and LBCC are safe.
So it’s sounding like they wanna kick it WAY old school, like what SDCC was in the very beginning. The real trick will be if they can pull it off without being strong-armed by the Hollywood machine.
Curiouser and curiouser.
