Comic-Con Program Highlights

What are you waiting in line to buy? Which exclusive collectible have you had your heart set on? Is it Hasbro’s new At-At toy, part of the new line of Star Wars action figures, or Mattel’s Ecto-1 Hot Wheel?  Let us know!


After this year’s convention, Comic-Con organizers will be voting on whether the event will stay in San Diego. San Diego has been its home since its founding in 1970, but rumor is Los Angeles, Anaheim and even Las Vegas are vying for the next contract which will begin in 2013.

Put simply, San Diego is becoming less and less cost-effective for hosting Comic-Con, which is growing at exponential rates. The San Diego Convention Center has not been able to accommodate more attendees or exhibit vendors, which have since spilled out into temporary tents and nearby hotel ballrooms. Additionally, Hollywood studios and TV networks are pushing for the move closer to Los Angeles, which would more easily accommodate Comic-Con’s growing number of movie and TV representatives. Could the popular art take-over be changing Comic-Con too much? Should Comic-Con stay true to its roots—graphic novels and San Diego? You tell us!

    There are many Comic Book Conventions Comic-Con should not go on tour… It should move to Anaheim where it’s size will not be an issue, and there are super fun things to do other than the convention. I go every year, and San Diego was awesome but it is much too crowded. If it is to grow, it needs the room to do so.

    If San Diego wants to keep Comic-Con, two things need to happen. First, the convention center needs to be expanded. Second, somebody needs to help the Comic-Con people with crowd control and scheduling. some will say, “who cares if it’s crowded, if they keep coming?” This is why: you have a convention that sells 125,000 tickets, but most of those people come to see programming that is in a ballroom designed to seat only 6.000. every year thousands go away annoyed that they stood in line for hours and didn’t get into their favorite panels. You can get away for that for a while, but long term it is a terrible strategy. Its not like DisneyWorld, where you can simply move on to another attraction; the more folks who have a bad experience, the more people there are out there saying “Comic-Con sucked, don’t waste your money.”
