The list of events running at the same time probably suggests that you will have to come with a double if you are to have a little bit of everything. It didn’t start off with all this hullaballoo though. The first comic con held back in 1970 has a staggering attendance of a hundred. Back then it was called the San Diego Golden State Comic-Minicon. From a one day affair the convention has grown into one of the biggest pop culture events in the world. Yep, that’s the entire globe. According to Forbes comic con is the largest convention of its kind in the world. So with all there is to do, how do you make the most of the biggest event in pop culture.

How to enjoy your time while you’re there:

Get all the collectibles you can

Comic con is where all your favorite sci-fi characters come to life. How is it comic con if you don’t get yourself a few souvenirs? The kids will love it too. It’s something to show to their friends as proof.

Always have a backup plan

Sounds all mysterious, doesn’t it? There is enough mystery and intrigue waiting for you once you get to the convention center. The backup plane here is all about your phone. If you can be calm about the fact that quarter way through the day you phone will have gone into power saver mode, then this bit is not for you. For those of us who have to tweet or instagram about it then don’t forget to come with your power bank. The last thing you want is a dead battery just when it’s your Kodak moment with the celebrity you’ve been stalking all day.

Have a back pack

know how in the beginning we called comic con the festival of the nerds? Turns out you look like you’re with it if you come to such a festival with a bag strapped to your shoulders. In addition to that you will also need it for all the things you will carry to and from the convention. Just stuff all your odds and ends in there and you’re good to go.

Keep yourself in the know

One of the most interesting things about comic con is you never know who you will run into. Well, if it were 20 years back that would be true. There will be a lot of important people in the showbiz world, not to mention the creators of the shows you like. To save yourself the disappointment you could simply follow the people you’d like to “bump into” and find tickets at Their tweets will serve as a homing device.
