Comic Con 2009 - Part 1

Comic-Con Celebrates Its 40th in 2009. As quoted from comic-con.org, it all started in 1970 with a one-day minicon (think of it as "Comic-Con Zero") at the U.S. Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego. The first guests were Forrest J Ackerman (Famous Monsters of Filmland's famous editor) and Mike Royer, best known for his work inking Jack Kirby's "Fourth World" books. That one-day event tested the waters - and raised funds - for the first ever San Diego Comic-Con (then called "San Diego's West Coast Comic-Con") in August of the same year, which featured comics legend Jack Kirby and science fiction authors Ray Bradbury and A. E. van Vogt. And the rest, as they say, is history - including Kirby, Bradbury, and Ackerman going on to become three of Comic-Con's favorite guests over the years (both Ray and Forry were present again in 2008).  There are many many people coming to comic con. I believe last year's number is around 146,000.

We have covered AX, fanime, AGS and many other more Japanese culture related cons. The attendees of comic con are quite different. Anime related cons usually composed of younger demographic. However, comic con seems to be able to successfully attract even the older generations and thus allow comic con to glow attendees year to year. AX is level out at around 44000. Anyway, I hope you guys enjoy the pictures. And don't forget to comment at the bottom of the page to show your support!

 

There are a few cosplayers around, however, they are mostly hired models.

No, she does not move.

My wife becomes a fan of this brand since last year or so.
