An Alternative to San Diego Comic-Con: The First Annual Comic Fest

July 9, 2012 at 1:17 PM | by | ()

Comic purists have complained for years that San Diego International Comic-Con, taking place between July 12 -15 at the San Diego Film Festival, has become too commercial and way too crowded, but this year they will have an alternative.

Some of Comic-Con's original founders are celebrating the event's 40th Anniversary by organizing the first San Diego Comic Fest, which they describe as an "intimate scale, old school comic con."

The Comic Fest will go down October 19-21, 2012 at the San Diego Town & Country Resort and Convention Center. Organizers plan on having about 1000 attendees, compared to SDCC's 100,000 + fans.

If you've had it with the crowds and lines at San Diego Comic-Con, you can buy tickets to SDCF at http://www.sdcomicfest.org/.
