Expos and Conventions

The Next New York Comic Con

The next New York Comic Con will take place October 8th through the 10th, 2010, at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City.  The show was launched in 2006 and was an immediate success, quickly becoming a dominant presence in the pop culture world of public events.  It has grown from a convention attracting 33,000 fans in its first year to one that will occupy the entire Javits Center and attract well over 75,000 fans in 2010. In 2009, 452 companies exhibited at NYCC for a total of 84,000 square feet of paid exhibit space, and it has been ranked by Crain's New York Business as the second-largest annual event in NYC.

The Comic Con of All Comic Cons

It goes without saying that San Diego's Comic-con International isn't strictly a comic book convention. It was never supposed to have become the monster it has. Back in the old days, and that means Clinton’s first term as President and before, nobody thought about movies all that much. Oh, sure there was Trek and Wars and all that stuff, but most of the people were geeking out on Superman, the Fantastic Four and Fritz the Cat, not to mention that gourmet imported stuff from France and Japan.

Comic Con Is A Monster

Okay, it’s officially a monster. 40 years ago, a bunch of kids decided to start up a comic book convention. This was back in the days when such things were given no respect by anybody, even the people who were in the industry. San Diego was too far away from LA do drive for such a thing, and if you remember back then, which you probably don’t, animation was at it’s nadir, literally dying.

The first REAL convention was in 1970, the Golden State Comic-Con at the U.S. Grant Hotel, which has since been renovated. 300 people showed up, which is normal for that kind of thing. After all, comics were for kids and if you went to one of those thing you were considered weird. But the artform was changing. only two years before the first preliminary meetings, the historic Zap #1 came out, bringing forth a revolution.
