[From the press release.] Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo.com, the Comic Con of L.A., a celebration of all things comic, gaming, sci-fi, and fantasy, is owned by Stan Lee, creator of Spider-Man and actress Cassandra Peterson who portrayed horror icon Elvira, Mistress of the Dark. The official comic book convention of Stan Lee punctuates its two-day celebration September 15-16 at the L.A. Convention Center with celebrity guests, fan-focused panels, costume contests, and gaming competitions. Art shows feature the work of industry greats and unknown artists side by side, allowing attendees to discover snippets of new stories or hunt pagefuls of their favorite rare character combinations, such as when Batman teamed up with Kristi Yamaguchi in Figure-Skating Fury. Local charities use a portion of the proceeds to enrich the lives of those in need, demonstrating one of the many ways stories can change the real world for the better without resorting to wearing Darth Vader costumes to the office.
