Whether fans of comic books, movies that move superheroes off the comic pages onto the big screen, or imported anime, Comic Con International in San Diego from July 19-23 has something for all genre fans. Take a look at the online schedule and spend time planning your days so you don't miss the events that are important to you!
The con starts with a preview night on July 19, and there's so much happening that you'll want to arrive early enough to take advantage of the extra time. The convention includes comic and fantasy art, displays, exhibitors and vendors with comic-inspired collectibles. There's a full line up of comic films and anime videos to enjoy, plus a special children's film festival.
Hearing from specials guests is always a highlight of attending the con. This year's featured speakers include artist Arthur Adams, Mad cartoonist Sergio Aragones, and writer Roxane Gay. You'll be able to collect autographs from many guests.
Take an active role in enjoying the festival. You can sit, watch, and listen, but you can also join into the fun. Play your favorite games, show off your comic style in the Masquerade, or have your own portfolio of work evaluated by industry experts.
Plan to stay at The Dana on Mission Bay, which is just a few miles from Comic Con 2017. When you aren't mingling with superheroes and superfans at the convention, you'll enjoy a super vacation at The Dana. Enjoy lounging next to our pools, discover your own superpowers when you try out a new water sport, and relive the days highlights over drinks at Firefly Eatery. The sparks flying from our firepit light up the night and your super imagination.
