What is Comic-Con?
Comic con is a comic book convention that is an event focused on comic books and comic book culture, where comic book fans come together to meet creators, experts, and each other.
These events first came to fruition in the late 1930s and have since become a global phenomenon.
These are multi-day events and usually feature a variety of activities, panels and are known to host some of the best cosplay competitions in the business.
Conventions are also used as a vehicle for the industry, in which publishers, distributors, and retailers represent their comic-related releases.
Comic book conventions happen all over the world and now feature a wide range of pop culture and entertainment elements including anime, manga, trading card games and video games as well as comic books.
The biggest comic con is generally known as San Diego Comic-Con, which offers multi-genre entertainment and has grown tremendously in popularity since its debut in 1970.
According Forbes, the convention is the “largest convention of its kind in the world”; In recent years, the San Diego-based event has become the stage many franchises, including The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), use to announce upcoming projects and release exclusive, never-before-seen content to fans.
