Saturday marked the first full day of Wizard World LA (in Long Beach) and we've got the pictures to prove it. While just roaming the floor it didn't seem quite as busy as last year, that could be due to the fact that they added 45,000 square feet of additional floor space this year. It could be that it simply spread attendees out a bit further, or maybe the rain in Southern California kept some people from making the trek down to Long Beach. Either way, there were plenty of creators to talk with and a handfull of costumed folk to mock. Oh, and before I forget, either I'm getting older or the costumed folk are getting faster. Slow down so I can catch you kids in the act!

OK, let's get to it.

So we're off to see the Wizard...wait a second? What the hell is this? Oh, phew! Seriously confused for a moment.
