2017 Comic-Con is Almost Here!

By, July 10, 2017

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.

Line around True building
During this time of year, we arrive to find people lined up around our building, waiting to buy collectible figurines from Funko. We love watching the crowds from our studio, which is a floor above the Funko storefront :)

Gotta love a gender-reversed Snow White and a loopy Harley Quinn!
