Battle for Multicultural Heroes panel at Comikaze

I had a fantastic time at the Stan Lee Comikaze Expo in LA this past weekend. It’s amazing how much the show has grown in size, quality, and creativity. I was especially impressed by the level of cosplay present. You guys really came out strong and represented the cosplay community well! Besides enjoying the show, I was able to moderate a couple of panels with some great panelist. First was the Battle for Multicultural Heroes with Tamara Brooks (@MisfitsTamara) and Crystal Clark (@GeekPinata). Ivy Doomkitty was sick that morning so she had to miss. In this panel we talked about ethnic superhero stereotypes, race-bending, recent film casting news, and future opportunities. As always, this panel is a joy to facilitate and very enlightening for all involved. Smart phones click here.

  2. Hi! My team and I are interested in holding a panel for Comikaze. This would be the first panel we’d be hosting (if approved), but we don’t know if we will be required to pay any sum of money to host the panel or if we would need to ask special permission to discuss any copyrighted material.

    This might sound dumb, but in your experience hosting panels at Comikaze, was anything like this required? Thank you so much for the interesting material on your panel. It was very interesting to watch!

    • Thanks for reaching out. No, conventions don’t charge you to put on a panel and for the most part, you don’t have to worry about licensing. You just can’t pretend to official represent an organization or entity. Feel free to email me what you are pitching and I can give you more specific advice. Crazy4ComicCon (at) hotmail (dot) com.
