Why You Want To Go To Comic-Con

There are many reasons why you should attend San Diego’s Comic-Con®. We have narrowed it down to what we feel are the top 5 reasons for attending this epic convention.


the original comic-con


The San Diego Comic-Con® is THE comic convention of all conventions. You want ketchup? You go for Heinz. You want a hot dog? You go for Hygrade. You want a tissue? It’s a Kleenex. Any other comic convention out there is but a replica, a wannabe, an attempt to copy the original version.

Above the previews are the launches and all the cool events happening at the San Diego comic convention. Be the first to see amazing movies and purchase yet unseen comic books. Makes my heart race just thinking about it – oh how I love being the envy of all my peeps.

Attend Comic-Con® and you will feel like you’ve stumbled into Previewtopia. How do you love that word? I just invented it for you – consider it a bonus for reading this post. 😉


people watching at comic-con


There. I said it. This convention is the best people-watching event ever invented. Bar none. If you’ve never attended, I can promise you this: you will not be bored whether you’re a fan of this universe or not!


cosplay at comic-con


Cosplay is a killer reason why you want to be at Comic-Con®! Costumes aren’t just for Halloween and they’re certainly not just for kids. It’s a way of life, and SDCC is the ultimate time of the year where you get to show off your well-crafted artwork. Oh yeah, that is an artwork!

Or should we say oodles of doodles! Make your way around the exhibition hall to the smaller vendors and book publishers. Artists will gladly make a doodle for you, I myself still have a nice collection from both WonderCon and Comic-Con – one of a kind drawings that nobody else has!

Allow Us to Send You To Comic-Con® This Summer!

At Traveling Stories we believe in making dreams come true.

But enough about us, we want to send YOU to this year’s SDCC edition via our Ultimate 2018 Comic-Con® Experience.
