Halloween? Feh.

Fans know costumes!

But a weekend full of cosplay—including a Friday night costume ball with the band Shiny Toy Guns—isn’t the only reason to attend the second Long Beach Comic-Con, Friday 10/29 to Sunday 10/31 at the Long Beach Convention Center. Feeling nostalgic for the good ol’ days of the San Diego Comic-Con? Y’know, when the focus was still on comics! Well soak it up, fanboy!

MOT highlights at Long Beach this year include:

Max Brooks (Booth 200)
Screenwriter and author of “Zombie Survival Guide,” “World War Z” and “Zombie Survival Guide: Recorded Attacks.”

Nuff said.

You can also catch Wolfman during “Comic Writing 101,” Friday, 3 p.m., Seaside Lobby; and at “Comic Book Sunday! Presents Marv Wolfman,” Saturday, 11 a.m., Seaside Ballroom B.
