Comic-Con 2011 just came and went in sunny, San Diego, California.  This annual event is always outrageously entertaining as all things comic hit downtown for the weekend.  Here’s the mission statement for this amazingly unique cultural experience:  “Comic-Con International is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular art forms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.”

Films are debuted and promoted by celebrity panelists (Andrew Garfield, Steven Sielberg, Harrison Ford, Jon Favreau, Olivia Wilde, Peter Jackson to name just a few of this year’s attendees!); participants spend hours making their costumes using a variety of materials including lots of beads of super glue; and a wildly good time is had by all!

If this event floats your boat then save July 12 -15th, 2012 and head to the award winning San Diego Convention Center for Comic-Con 2012!
