In a move that might surprise some Con goers, the organizers of San Diego Comic Con have decided to only sell single day passes this year. Usually the passes offered to regular visitors come with are the 4-Day (Thurs. – Sun.). Comparatively, NYCC usually offers 4-Days, 3-Days, and Single Days.
The convention started out small, focusing on just comics. San Diego Comic-Con is the first one, and most certainly the oldest (first was in 1970). This one is considered the prime convention of the Comic-Cons, having the descriptor of “International”. As the convention grew, more mediums beyond comics were showcased. Soon, Comic-Con became the center of geek pop culture, showcasing paraphernalia, comics, figurines, videogames, TV shows, and movies. With such growth came many more attendees, and as such less room to house them all. The show has since spread, with different organizers holding their own local Comic-Cons, which include Chicago, Phoenix, Dallas, etc. In New York, ReedPop holds New York Comic-Con.
