The San Diego Comic Fest is a case of something old, that’s becoming new again: a friendly comic convention with a casual atmosphere and a smaller, more intimate scale. If you love of comics, science fiction, and film, and want meet an amazing array of professional creators without crowding or long lines, this is the event for you.
Fans and professionals can hang out in a relaxed setting and enjoy good times talking about comics, science fiction, and experience a varied, eclectic program with things for a wide variety of interests. As you would expect of a comic convention, there are panel discussions, guest programs, an Artist Alley, cosplay, an exhibitors hall full of your favorite comics, books, toys, and other collectibles, and much more.
At this year’s Fest (held October 17-19 at the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center, adjacent to the Fashion Valley Mall area of San Diego), they’ll be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel with special guests Laura Siegel Larson (Jerry’s daughter) and Neal Adams. It’s also the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters, and they’re celebrating with special guests including producer Michael Gross and Academy Award winning special effects masters Richard Edlund and John Bruno. Twilight Zone is also honored with special guests including Rod Serling’s daughter and biographer Anne Serling, and Twilight Zone screenwriter George Clayton Johnson.
