Storyline

Since 1970, Comic-Con in San Diego has grown from an small and obscure comic book event, to a major multi-media extravaganza attracting thousands. As various creative celebrities discuss what attracts them to this shindig and how it has grown and changed, we follow various people who have come from all over. Whether it be a veteran comic book vendor trying to make a profit in an event that is now marginalizing his medium, aspiring artists wanting to break into it, an ambitious costumer or a romantic geek with a special surprise for his girlfriend, they all experience a special time of year where the fantastic imagination is celebrated.

Spurlock captures the heart of the San Diego Con
14 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've been to the Comic Con International 5 times over the years and this movie captures the feel and the heart of the convention even though comics become less and less the core of the event each year. I won't tell you why....but you will definitely tear up during one of the climactic scenes. Show this movie to you family and friends so they will understand why nerds are such good people.....and if you aren't a nerd, that's your loss! It's available online so you don't have to be near one of the limited number of theaters showing this movie....I can't wait for the DVD to be released since this is already my pick for documentary of the year!
