VOTD: The History of Comic-Con in 4 Minutes

the history of comic-con

Today the /Film team is headed to 2014 San Diego Comic Con International. The convention has become a huge venue to premiere the latest movie, television, comic books and video game projects. The event has actually grown so big that it has overgrown the San Diego Convention Center and is now taking over other venues around San Diego in a series of sponsored and non-official events. But like anything, Comic-Con started off really small.  The photo above shows off the massive lines outside the convention center in the early 1980′s, when Comic Con was just entering its teenage years. MovieClips has put together a video explaining the history of comic-con in just 4 minutes.  Watch the History of Comic-Con video now embedded after the jump.
