Long Beach Comic & Horror Con Best Ever
By C. MacDonald
Also at the con were vendors like Offshoot Comics, which offer very positive messages to readers through their comic books, including the new “Heroes R Us,” about a small town turned upside by the transformation of a general store into a toy store that sells superpowers. The children all rush to get the toys so they can have superpower.
These are positive stories illustrated by Joanne Kwan of San Francisco and created and written by David Clarke of Van Nuys. “Our message is that anyone can be a hero,” Clarke said. “You don’t need to have sex and violence to have a good story.”
One of their comics even deals with the subject of bullies.
“We love coming here because it’s so family friendly and we can talk to the public and explain what we’re about. It’s easy to get to know us and we’re looking for further projects to help society,” Clarke said. One representative from the Los Angeles Unified School District was very much interested in their positive, educational and entertaining comics. (For further info, go to Offshootcomics.com)
