San Diego Comic Con is an iconic event and it has been in that city for what...30 years. It should stay in San Diego and the city should either make the convention bigger or filter out some of the television/movie stuff to make more room.
Great article!! My man cave is littered with comic boxes, books and Bowen Designs statues and busts so I consider myself a comic addict. I always have a window open on mozilla for the comicvine website. I keep buying comics from the $1 bins at my local LCS and it drives my wife nuts. I do tend to go overboard at times :)
I was into comics since the mid 80's as a kid and my first issue I bought was an Avengers title at a 7-11 store during a visit to the Bay area. When my family moved to San Diego, I discovered a LCS within biking distance and spent my allowance there. I collected mostly Marvel but I got caught up in the whole Image scene in the 90's. I stopped collecting for awhile during the mid 90's and started going comic crazy again about 4-5 years ago.
