Entertainment Weekly Named This Year’s Official Media Partner of Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con
Entertainment Weekly has been named as this year’s official media partner of Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con. Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con, a 3-day pop culture extravaganza, will be taking place October 27-29 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
As the official media partner, Entertainment Weekly (EW) will collaborate with Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con to enhance and elevate talent participation and programming for the over 100,000 attendees expected for this year’s 3-day mega-convention. Plus, EW will feature all the fun and excitement of the convention in the magazine as well as on their website. And, to top it all off, each and every badge holder will receive a one-year subscription to America’s leading pop culture magazine, with a total combined audience of 26 million consumers. Attendees purchasing their 3-day badges during the limited pre-sale period can get the coveted passes at the pre-sale price of only $70 dollars, a savings of $10 dollars! As of today, 3-day weekend badges are available for purchasing online, although single-day badges may become available as the event gets closer.
2017 marks the 7th year for Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con, which has grown into one of the largest gatherings of stars and creative talent in comic book, publishing, gaming, film, broadcast, cable and streaming entertainment. In its first five years, it was named Stan Lee’s Comikaze, before changing its name for last year’s convention.
“Thanks to fans throughout Southern California, Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con has emerged as the largest celebration of our town’s pop culture icons under one convention center roof. Now, joined by Entertainment Weekly as the official media partner, the 2017 convention promises to be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to rub elbows with today’s most beloved stars in comics, sci-fi, fantasy and horror entertainment,” said Stan Lee’s LA Comic Con CEO Keith Tralins.
“It’s our honor to partner with nothing less than pop-culture’s paper of record,” said Founder Regina Carpinelli. “And what better way to lead into your Halloween holiday?”
“We are thrilled for EW to be the Official Media Partner of Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con, and excited to help make the 2017 Convention the biggest and best ever. We look forward to offering a one-year subscription to every attendee, where they’ll find smart and funny coverage of their favorite franchises and stars,” said Henry Goldblatt, Editor in Chief of Entertainment Weekly.
