Comic-Con International: San Diego

San Diego | July 2020

What began as a small gathering of comic book aficionados in 1970 has transformed into a touchstone event that is now the largest annual comics and pop culture festival in the world.

Comic-Con International: San Diego takes over the San Diego Convention Center and its environs for four days in July, revelling in all things sci-fi, horror and fantasy. Panels with Hollywood A-listers, seminars, workshops, autograph sessions, film previews and screenings, gaming, and portfolio review sessions for budding artists and writers are all part of the mix, as well as a huge line-up of exhibitors with toys, art and collectibles.

Evening events include a masquerade ball and costume contest along with an awards ceremony honouring the legends of the industry. Getting tickets for Comic-Con can require some superhero-like persistence though, as they sell out in about 12 parsecs.
