Comic Con Crazy

Over the weekend, a major event took place at San Diego --- the annual Comic-Con where fans had the chance to join panel discussions with several TV and movie people. And this is why over the weekend, TV news was kinda slow because most TV press people were covering that event.

If Comic-Con is your thing, you can read all about it here or watch videos here.
Comic-Con: commonly known as Comic-Con or the San Diego Comic-Con, is an annual multigenre fan convention founded as the Golden State Comic Book Convention and later the San Diego Comic Book Convention in 1970 by Shel Dorf and a group of San Diegans. It is traditionally a four-day event (Thursday through Sunday—though a four hour preview night on Wednesday is open to guests pre-registered for all four days) held during the summer in San Diego, California, at the San Diego Convention Center. Comic-Con is both the name of the annual event and the common name of the organization.

Originally showcasing comic books, science fiction/fantasy and film/television (as was evident by the three circled figures appearing in Comic-Con's original logo), and related popular arts, the convention has expanded over the years to include a larger range of pop culture elements, such as horror, anime, manga, animation, toys, collectible card games, video games and webcomics.
