‘Captain Marvel’ Goes ‘Higher, Further, Faster’ at Long Beach Comic Expo with Fanbase Press’ Barbra Dillon and More!

As mentioned earlier this week, the Fanbase Press staff is thrilled to be exhibiting at Long Beach Comic Expo this weekend (Artist Alley A-5), and now we are out-of-this-world excited to announce the special Captain Marvel-supported panel titled “Higher, Further, Faster: They Lead The Way,” in which four female pop-culture veterans will take part in a candid discussion about their experiences as pioneers in their chosen fields - including Fanbase Press' own Barbra Dillon!

Taking place on Saturday, February 16, at 12:30 p.m. in Room 104A, the iconic women will share their stories of the successes they've had and the challenges they've faced in comic editing and writing, journalism, conventions, and cosplay, and how bearing the mark of a trailblazer can be rewarding, frustrating, alienating, and fulfilling — all in equal measure! Panelists will include Barbra Dillon (Co-Founder and EIC - Fanbase Press), Ivy Doomkitty (International Cosplay Superstar), Martha Donato (Founder - Long Beach Comic Con and Expo), and Barbara Randall Kesel (Writer and Editor - DC Comics, CrossGen, Dark Horse).

Long Beach Comic Expo will also host a large Captain Marvel-themed exhibit with tons of officially licensed merchandise. There will also be an opportunity for attendees to enter to win Fandango tickets to see Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel in theaters. Lastly, guests have the ability to take photos with a Goose the Cat backdrop and another with an oversized Captain Marvel teaser poster.
 
Set in the 1990s, Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel is an all-new adventure from a previously unseen period in the history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that follows the journey of Carol Danvers as she becomes one of the universe’s most powerful heroes. While a galactic war between two alien races reaches Earth, Danvers finds herself and a small cadre of allies at the center of the maelstrom.
 
Marvel Studios’ Captain Marvel opens on March 8, 2019, in U.S. theaters. Reserve your tickets online today.
