Comic-Con clash

An epic battle breaks out over the term “Comic Con”

Comic Con International: San Diego (known colloquially as the San Diego Comic-Con or SDCC) just wrapped up after four days of intense pop culture insanity, including movie trailers, comic announcements and celebrity appearances. While SDCC is the best known such event on the planet, the event, which has been held annually for over 40 years, is certainly not the only comic book convention in the country. Comic cons (as they are known) are held almost every weekend. Some are small enough to fit in a Knights of Columbus hall, while others, like New York Comic Con, attract over a hundred thousand fans.
