Comic-Con International: San Diego
Where: San Diego Convention Center | 111 W. Harbor Drive San Diego, CA 92101
This San Diego Event isn’t just any Comic-Con; it is THE Comic-Con. It is the one that the most passionate fans of sci-fi, anime, and comics dream of attending. It is the largest Comic-Con in the country. It all began in 1970 when a few comic book fans thought it would be fun to host a gathering with other fans so they could discuss plots, characters, and other finer points of the comic book world.
That first Comic-Con drew about 300 people. Not bad, but the San Diego Event continued to grow over the years, and more than 130,000 attendees are expected at the 2014 Comic-Con International. The popularity of this event is both a good and a bad thing for fans. It’s good because some of the biggest talents in the sci-fi and comic world agree to be part of this Comic-Con. It’s bad because getting tickets can be difficult. Comic-Con International usually sells out very quickly after tickets are made available.
Those who were lucky enough to get tickets to this year’s Comic-Con will have the chance to meet 40 of their favorite writers, attend panel discussions, see some heroes of the cosplay world, and much more. This is a family-friendly San Diego Event, so parents can feel comfortable bringing their children. There are even special activities to help get children interested in sci-fi and comics. A gaming area has everything from board games to vintage video games.
Attendees will have the chance to learn about various fan groups from around the country, buy hard-to-find collectibles, attend the interesting panel discussions, and much more.
Should you be visiting our Hotel in San Diego at the end of July, please do not be alarmed at the sight of a gang of Batmans walking towards you or a crowd of stormtroopers sipping coffee in a café. They mean no harm; they’re just here for Comic Con International: San Diego.
