Comic Convention

Organized by Comic-Con International

Comic-Con International: San Diego began in 1970 when a group of comics, movie, and science fiction fans -- including the late Shel Dorf, Ken Krueger, and Richard Alf -- banded together to put on the first comic book convention in southern California. Comic-Con started as a one-day "minicon," called San Diego's Golden State Comic-Minicon, on March 21, 1970 at the U.S. Grant Hotel in downtown San Diego. The purpose of this single-day event-which included two special guests, Forrest J Ackerman and Mike Royer, and drew about 100 attendees-was to raise funds and generate interest for a larger convention.
