BY FRANK MONAHAN Welcome to our special 2015 Comic-Con International issue We returned to home base just a short while ago after 4 AMAZING days at the San Diego Convention Center and all the supporting hotel venues. Just to give you a sense of how big this event was the San Diego Convention Center is just plain HUGE and it was not big enough to contain everything being offered. Three hotels within a block or two of the Convention Center were also utilized as well as a small park across a walking bridge next to Petco Park the home of the San Diego Padres. Im not kiddingthis event was HUGE. Im going to try and give you a sense of the event by telling you about my experience and after youve read this article if you havent already been to Comic-Con Im thinking and secretly hoping youll want to We arrived there were two of us there representing FLiP Magazine with Press Passes me and our intrepid reporter Alexis Monahan my daughter on Wednesday the day before the 4-day weekend happening. We hit the Convention Center right away to grab our Press credentials and I have to tell you you could feel it the minute I stepped in the already buzzing Convention Center the air was electric The absolutely genuine excitement exhibited by everyone was palpable. When Comic Con actually starts on Thursday you are immediately amazed by the enormous number of people coming from every directionand not just everyday people either but excited people people in costumes people who love movies TV Comic Books Novelseverything Our shuttle left us off outside an amusement park about a mile from the convention center. Along with hundreds and hundreds of others we crossed the enormous al ing bridge over the confluence of high ays and Interstate and railroad tracks that passed below. Then we entered the center itself and were met by thousands more people. Absolutely amazing10 WWW.FLIPMAGAZINE.NETAUGUST2015
