Comic-Con To Stay In San Diego

Hall H Of Horror: The Comic-Con Attack

In spite of rumors to the contrary that circulated at this year's show, the annual Comic-Con entertainment convention will continue to be held in San Diego for at least the next five years. Comic-Con officials announced Thursday that San Diego had beat out Los Angeles and Anaheim as home to the convention through at least 2015.

"San Diego has been home to Comic-Con for over 40 years and it's an honor to continue hosting this important event, which is now so much a part of the fabric of our community," Mayor Jerry Sanders said.

"Our bid was successful because of the combined efforts of our Convention Center team, the hotels and our entire hospitality community,"
Sanders added.

I have mixed feelings about the news, honestly. San Diego is a beautiful, friendly city, but on the other hand, I think the con has outgrown the SD Convention Center -- The Comic-Con show floor can be as packed as a Tokyo subway car at times during the Con. But still, moving it to Vegas would kill a lot of the small-town-meets-nerds vibe that Comic-Con brings every year, and moving it to L.A. would kill the community asp[ect of the the Con altogether. It would mean no more neighborhood street parade of awesome, as everyone would have to drive to every non-convention-related peripheral event.

On the whole, I think it's a good thing, and I look forward to attending the Convention again at its ancestral home.
