The comics and fantasy world fair from 1970

Are you a comic-addicted? Once in your life, give you the opportunity to be in your dreamy place: the San Diego Comic Con in California.

San Diego Comic Con is the yearly event that celebrates the contribution of comics to art and culture. From the first one-day “minicon” in 1970, the Comic Con International has become the most important of this kind celebration in the world. The first edition drew about one hundred people and today, after almost 50 years, San Diego welcomes more than 130 thousands people to its conventions and events about the comics and fantasy world.

In the minds of its founders, Shel Dorf, Ken Krueger, and Richard Al, the main purpose of the San Diego Comic, should have been increasing the awareness on the comics as a narrative genre, including not only books but also other aspects of the popular arts that they felt deserved wider recognition such as films and science fiction/fantasy literature.

Today the Comic-Con International, this is the official name, has become a nonprofit educational organization  dedicated to popular arts, promoting their values through conventions, workshops, exhibits, shows and with the presence of special guest stars.
