Comicon may move away from San Diego
Comic-Con International, the beloved behemoth of San Diego conventions, is in danger of leaving its birthplace for a larger home, spurring local tourism leaders to do all they can to keep the four-day show here.I wouldn't be surprised if the incursion of the movie business is what's driving this urge of the directors to move house to another city, besides just the need for more floor space. In that case, it wouldn't be the wish to help give the books more exposure, but rather, to bring in other forms of pop culture at the expense of what this show was originally built on. Especially if their new destination is none other than Hollywood!
After 2012, the event held each July at the San Diego Convention Center will be free to leave town.
