About San Diego Comic Fest 2012

Several founders and other early organizers of the San Diego Comic-Con have reunited to organize the San Diego Comic Fest, an old-school comic con with a friendly atmosphere and an intimate scale. The specific occasion is the 40th anniversary of the first San Diego Comic-Con held at the El Cortez Hotel. That con set the pattern for a string of memorable Comic-Cons throughout the rest of the 1970s. For many long-time attendees, the El Cortez cons are a fondly-remembered golden age of Comic-Con. We envision the Fest as a fun, casual, friendly and quirky con like the ones that were at the El Cortez. There was a real sense of community at the old cons and a certain sense of ownership that the attendees felt, that it was really their event.
