History of San Diego Comic-Con
The San Diego Comic-Con originally started out as the Golden State Comic Book Convention. In 1970, it was changed to the San Diego Comic Book Convention. It has been held at the San Diego Convention Center and runs four days (Thursday - Sunday) during the end of July.
Since 1974, Comic Con International has awarded creators and members alike yearly during the convention with their Inkpot Awards.
The San Diego Convention Center will remain home to the Con at least through 2012. Because of over-crowding issues, the location might be changed after 2012.
