The origins of Comic Con
Did you know that Comic Con events started taking place at the end of the 1930s? Indeed, this kind of event originated from groups of fans wishing to meet up with comic lovers on a not-for-profit basis. While they used to be sporadic affairs, Comic book conventions became so popular that it wasn't long before official happenings started to take place. The first one came in the shape of the New York Comicon, in 1964. Continuously growing and expanding to multiple-day events, Comic Cons are now big, multigenre meetups, with cities all over the globe hosting their own conventions.
