About
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 favorite 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 favorite superhero costume is highly encouraged!

Amazing experience but research first
Jul 2019 • Couples
First time attendee from uk, was so excited to get tickets and be going and did not disappoint. Was understandably busy but not over crowded, I would say it’s not well sign posted for first time attendees, we walked round some pointless bits first before working out where all the main stuff was. Tried to queue for hall h for marvel but after an hour was told it was pointless. And it doesn’t stop there, there was loads of events going on around San Diego at the bars and pubs and even on the street. So definitely do your research so you know where else to head after the convention. I wouldn’t say it’s for all ages, I didn’t quite get the families trying to squeeze buggies down aisles of people but hey.

Throngs I side and out
Jul 2019 • Friends
So this is by far the most visited event like this of it's kind. I had been to smaller local conventions as well as star wars celebration in London 2016, but the San Diego COMICON is the absolute undisputed mammoth. A dizzying amount of panels, San Diego Convention Center houses over 1/4 mile of floor space packed with high profile vendors. I saw the Marvel panel in the hardest hall to get in Hall H... it was a star studded affair as they announced phase 4... still I would not bother with any of it if I didn't have my cousin on the board of trustees for the convention center... too old to camp out for access... I understand they are trying to make it fair for everyone so... I understand why they do what they do, but there is no where to sit... I must take away a star...

I attended Comic Con with my daughter ans husband. We really enjoyed the panels and multitude of booths. There were so many people, but it was well organized. More seating would have been nice, but everything else was thoroughly enjoyable.

A can't miss Comic Con
Jul 2018 • Business
I've attended 3 Comic Con's now, and will be going for the foreseeable future. There are many comic con's throughout the country, but this (so far) is the best Comic Con that I've attended, both for my podcast, and as just a normal attendee. Believe the hype, it's worth it!

Comic Con 2018
Jul 2018
We had an excellent time! We saw, between my daughter and myself, we saw the panels for Fear the Walking Dead, The Walking Dead, Star Trek Discovery, Preacher, Riverdale, Supergirl, Arrow, Flash, Legends of Tomorrow. We also saw the panels for Bumblebee, with John Cena, Venom with Tom Hardy, and Kevin Smith. The venues were great, along with the people we met, both in San Diego for Comic Con and the people of San Diego.

Mind Blowing Crazy Fun
Jul 2018 • Couples
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!

Way too crowded and expensive!
Jul 2017 • Family
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!

WOW !!!

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.

Comic Con fun!!
Jul 2017 • Couples
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 it weren't for these crazy lines! They have lottery systems for tickets, parking and hotels, why not for panels, exclusives etc.? We had preview night and four days. When we arrived for preview night, a lady was handing out tix to see Annabelle in an early screening. I thought wow, if they r handing them out, there must not be a long line, so wrong!! We walked all the way over to see that we'd have to wait two screenings before getting in, so 3 hrs. Not worth it, rather pay $15 and walk right in when in the theatres. I really hope they change things up about these lines and have a more organized event next year. We still had fun, I love all the costumes and everyone is very friendly. If you haven't been, go at least once. You won't regret it, but prepare ahead of time. Especially if u want to see Conan if he's back, that sells out early. Have fun!
