Overview

Everyone is a super geek at this mother-of-all Comic Con festivals at the San Diego Convention Center. Launched in 1970 as a straightforward comic book convention, today over 100,000 enthusiastic fans (many in elaborate outfits) come to mingle with their favourite graphic novelist or get an autograph from a TV or movie star. Other events include panel discussions, exclusive film previews and interactive workshops. Bringing together such an eclectic fan base is a mighty entertaining sight to behold, with gurus of fantasy, comics, movies, animation, science fiction and more convening under one roof. Squeezing into your favourite superhero costume is highly encouraged!

You must come to San Diego for Comic Con. Even if you don’t have tickets. The fun madness is all over downtown along with the Stars. See a free super Hero movie in a park or sip special concoctions and hero-watch. Do it!

This WAS a great convention to check out before it became too much of a high end popularity contest. Lines are long, food is expensive, and there is just way too many people trying to see/do the same thing!

Comic Con is definitely a must see at least once. The participants are hardcore. You most definitely need 2 or 3 days to fully immerse yourself into Comic Con. So much to see.

This was our third visit to San Diego for Comic Con. We generally know that it's not well thought out. The lines are crazy and I think not fair for the young or older crowds that don't get to see things they normally would if...More

My friend was kind enough to loan me his pass so I could walk around the convention floor for a bit. Not being a huge comics fan, I thought I'd get bored. But it was fascinating to take in all the fans and vendors who...More

I never give bad reviews, but since this was the worst event of my life, thought it warranted the rating. Our family was 'lucky' to be part of the very small percentage of people that received tickets to this event. We had Preview day plus...More

This event has grown to mind numbing proportions. I took my kids to this show when they were little, but I do not recommend any parent taking any children under 12 to this. 200,000 people all jammed elbow to elbow...it only invites disaster.
