Comic-Con International: San DiegoDescending on downtown San Diego every summer is the colorful Comic-Con International event, a four-day convention and celebration of comic books, pop art and fantasy. Taking place for over four decades, this massive festival features hundreds of separate events and welcomes over 130,000 guests, many of whom dress up like their favorite science fiction or fantasy character: Chewbacca, Sailor Moon, Batman, Wonder Woman and Thor all have a place at this wacky celebration.
While the event is known mostly for comic books and comic arts, it also features an incredible range of pop art, anime, manga, horror, collectible card games, video games, toys, webcomics, science fiction and fantasy. Once an outpost for nerds and geeks to show off their light sabers and Pokemon collections, this huge event has gone mainstream and now A-List celebrities show up to be noticed.
To experience Comic-Con, wear your finest sci-fi regalia and prepare for an onslaught of over 600 official events and plenty of after-parties. Explore 460,000 square feet of displays in the Exhibit Hall, attend hands-on workshops, meet legendary comic book authors, play games, watch anime screenings, compete for best costume and meet like-minded comic enthusiasts.
Sign up for portfolio review sessions with top video game and comic book companies, shop for exclusive collectible toys and above all, have fun at this one-of-a-kind pop art event.
