Comic-Con is a celebration of geek culture. It’s a place for all those interesting individuals who dress up as superheroes, wizards, spaceships, and zombies can all congregate together and all feel at home. Comic-Con helped made this possible.
Comic-Con started out as a rather small convention, bringing different groups together. The first Comic-Con occurred in 1970 (then called Minicon) where only 300 people showed up. The first Comic-Cons wanted to unite different fan groups and let everyone celebrate their interests together. The CC helped show the world that there was space for geek culture. A big part of their success is that the conventions are run by fans themselves.
