Comic-Con San Diego 2013 This Weekend
Comic-Con San Diego started last Thursday and ran through the weekend. For those of you who may not be as geeky as others, according to their website, Comic-Con International: San Diego is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular artforms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture. In other words, it is a large convention dedicated to comics as well as other art forms like sci-fi movies and television shows, for fans and people to celebrate the works of art!

Comic-Con started as a one-day “minicon,” called San Diego’s Golden State Comic-Minicon, in 1970 in downtown San Diego. The purpose of this single-day event, which drew about 100 attendees, was to raise funds and generate interest for a larger convention. This was largely successful considering how large Comic-Con has become! According to Comic-Con.org, from the beginning, the founders of the show set out to include not only the comic books they loved, but also other aspects of the popular arts that they enjoyed and felt deserved wider recognition, including films and science fiction/fantasy literature. So, over the years Comic-Con San Diego has grown into a huge convention for geeks and nerds everywhere!!! (Or you science fiction, comic book lovers.)

This year Comic-Con San Diego was the biggest and best convention yet. Every year Comic-Con gets bigger and bigger and it seems that Hollywood participates more and more. The fans come out to celebrate the different cultures of genres like science fiction, fantasy, anime and all things in between. Different celebrities, actors, actresses and creators sit on panels, autographs, screenings, and interviews which makes it fun and interactive for the fans.
