Los Angeles, CA, March 11, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- This Women’s History Month, Marvel’s Captain Marvel won’t be the only Shero making history. Local comic creator and Shero Comics CEO, Shequeta L. Smith has partnered up with Westfield Culver City Mall to host what will be Los Angeles’ first ever female-themed pop-up comic-con, SheroCon.
Hollywood Stuntwoman Janeshia Adams-Ginyard (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War), Hollywood Actress/Stunt Double, Rebecca Bujko (Avengers: Endgame, Sharp Objects) and Daytime Emmy Award winning Composer, Lolita Ritmanas (Avengers Assemble, Marvel Rising) are a few amongst multiple sheroes scheduled to appear at Shero Comic’s inaugural pop-up comic-con. This mini-con is set for Saturday, March 9, 2019 from 12pm-5pm at the Westfield Mall Culver City.
SheroCon is a one-day celebration of female comic creators, cosplayers and local sheroes who are making a difference in the world of comics and entertainment. Other activities scheduled for the day include an all-female artist alley, featuring indie and mainstream comic creators, and one-on-one “Shero Talks Q&A’s” with writers, actresses, composers and makeup artists from some of the comic book world’s biggest tv and film properties.
There will also be a Special Effects make-up demonstration with Hollywood Special Effects make-up expert and Nocturnal Designz owner, KC Mussman (Ad Astra, Paranormal Activity: Séance). But the event is more than just about Shero encounters. There will also be face painting, caricatures and glitter lipstick demos from professional makeup artists at MAC Cosmetics.
The SheroCon pop-up con is the first of its kind in Los Angeles and is the brainchild of Shero Comic’s CEO, Shequeta Smith. Smith, who was recently featured in InStyle Magazine, is also the author of the bestselling graphic novel series, Rayven Choi. Explaining the motivation for hosting the event Smith said, “I began searching for local events in Los Angeles that Shero Comics could partner with to celebrate the work that women have contributed to the world of comics and entertainment. I was especially looking since Marvel Studios will be releasing their first female-led film, Captain Marvel, in March. After a few weeks of coming up empty handed, the idea for SheroCon was born.”
SheroCon celebrations will begin at 12 noon and run until 5:00 pm. For further information, visit: sherocomics.com or the Eventbrite page https://sherocon.eventbrite.com
