Details of Comic-Con and the Ticket Luck value
“Comic Con” caught the attention of many when it came into existence in 1970 under the name Golden State Comic Book Convention. However, recently its popularity has skyrocketed due to the broader spectrum of elements that it has taken into consideration. Originally the event featured comic books, film/television and science fiction/fantasy but now horror, anime, video games, animation, collectible card games web comics, toys, Manga and fantasy novels have joined the fun. With J Ackerman and Mike Royer, the inaugural event took place at the US Grant Hotel. It was attended by 145 people. That number has grown tremendously over the years with most of the shows being completely sold-out. In 2010 San Diego Convention Center witnessed around 130,000 people buying Comic Con tickets to catch it live.
Before “Comic Con” came into the picture one of its founding members Shel Dorf came up with Detroit Triple-Fan Fairs in 1960s. In 1970, after moving to San Diego he came up with the Golden State Comic-Minicon. The endeavor being a one day event, got a very positive response which paved the way for it to become what it is today.The first convention scheduled for 1-3rd August gathered around 300 people. In its initial years El Cortez Hotel hosted the convention marking an increase in the number of attendees with each passing event.
It was in 1991 that the convention moved to San Diego Convention Center. It was received very well by the people as attendance figures hit the 15,000 mark. This non-profit organization consists of around 13 board members, 16 to 20 workers and about 80 volunteers. There are more than 15 rooms utilized for panels and screening. Hilton Bayfront and Marriott Marquis & Marina are other venues that host “Comic Con” activities.
Previously known as San Diego Comic-Con International, this convention also accounts for two other conventions called WonderCon and Alternative Press Expo (APE). Focusing on Eisner Award winners, the Comic-Con Magazine came out in 2005 under the name Update. Featuring all three conventions the magazine originated from a comic book titled The Spirit. Commonly referred to as APE today, the magazine provides an insight into “Comic Con” attendees while covering the entire event. The event has a lot to offer at present thanks to the eclectic range of genres. The new format includes previews of feature films, review sessions with comic book and video game companies, award ceremonies, Annual Masquerade Costume contest and much more.
Television shows have also added to the popularity of the convention leaving feature films behind. The year 2011’s convention saw around 80 television shows in comparison with 35 films. On the other hand, non-animated shows have also been seen dominating the event in recent years. Bones, The Vampire Diaries, Burn Notice, The Big Bang Theory, Nikita, Once Upon a Time and Supernatural being a few examples. Whereas Being Human, Torchwood, Lost Girl, Doctor and Warehouse 13 are some sci-fi television shows that have also been promoted at the “Comic Con” convention.
Since the variety of genres have helped in reaching out to as many people as possible shows such as Dexter, True Blood and Shameless from HBO and Showtime have also made it to the convention. Other attractions include panels, workshops and seminars with comic book professionals. There is also an autograph area and Artists’ Alley giving the fans an exclusive opportunity to get autographs and free sketches. That being just the tip of the iceberg as there is so much more in store for the attendees. To make the most of the opportunity buy Comic Con tickets before the event passes you by.
