Like the line of people in the photo below, the 2017 Comic-Con International is around the corner! Hordes of zombies, princesses, and caped crusaders will soon be invading our town (more specifically, the San Diego Convention Center) on July 20th – 23rd. This event has been taking place in San Diego since 1973, when a group of science fiction, comic book, and movie fans organized a comic book convention. Since that inaugural year, which drew about 100 attendees, Comic-Cons have had attendance exceeding 130,000! These devotees flock to San Diego annually, and are treated to sneak peeks of upcoming science-fiction and fantasy movies, shows, and literature.
Our True Photography headquarters is just 5 blocks from the Convention Center, so we get to see all the attendees as they pass by! In anticipation of this year’s Comic-Con, here are highlights from last year’s event.
Bonus points if you can name all the costumed characters above! Also, check out more classic San Diego Comic-Con photos photographed by our studio. See ya at the ‘Con :)
