Hero Complex 2012 May 18-21

Hero Complex is back! One of the fine events that leads into E3 and AX and the LA Film Festival. Magical fan nights await you, just check whose coming this year! Robo Cop! I know Detroit's getting the stature, but honestly can't we have one too? Stan Lee, wow he already has his own convention here in LA, for a guy in his 80's he lives life to the fullest.

Honestly, the best part is the interviews that Geoff has with these nerd kings. He talks like an old friend and you get real answers, not something from a publicist. Get you tickets starting tomorrow.

The lineup includes:
“Dawn of the Dead”Fri. May 18– director Zack Snyder will discuss reimagining the terrifying classic for a 21st century audience withRobert Kirkman, the creator and writer of Skybound/Image Comics’ “The Walking Dead” and many other titles
