SDCC began in 1970 and originally held at the U.S. Grant Hotel in downtown. Since then it has become one of the biggest comic conventions in the world bringing $150 million into the city and made up more than a quarter of the year’s traffic.
While we were there we got to talk to some amazing cosplayers, artists, and celebrities.
Some of our favorite cosplayers were from Comicare, a nonprofit corporation of cosplayers who donate comic books to children in hospitals and medical facilities.
We got to hang out at PRISM Comics another nonprofit organization supporting LGBTQIA-friendly comic books, professionals and educators.
