Hungary has a comicon, but it looks like it's part of the USA-based business

Hungary Today announces the Budapest Comic-Con, though it sounds like it's an extension of its USA counterpart:
The world’s biggest and most important pop culture event, Comic-Con, will be held in Hungary again this year: between May 18 and 19, visitors can meet Hollywood stars such as Afshan Azad, Clive Standen, Deep Roy, Erick Avari, Eric Roberts, and Jerome Flynn at Hungexpo Budapest Congress and Exhibition Center.

Comic-Con is the best-known pop culture convention, especially for comic book and film fans, which started in the U.S. as Comic-Con International in the 1970s. Every year, the biggest Hollywood film studios and television companies participate with their latest themed films, series, and comic books.

According to a press release, Budapest Comic Con was first held in 2022, and since then, the event has been growing and evolving, offering visitors an ever-wider range of programs.
I see. So San Diego's Comic-Con expanded overseas? Honestly, what's the use of giving this backing then, considering the original convention back in the USA long ago stopped representing comics foremost and shifted to movies and TV instead? Hungary's pop culture community would do well to focus more on their own, homegrown conventions, and not rely on a convention that's become as overrated as Comic-Con's become. Today, it only stands for the PC standings Hollywood's taken up. There's really no point in Hungarian pop culture fans financing it.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
