Comic Con International is coming to San Diego July 21-24. Badges for admission sold out in just over an hour when they went on sale. The best you can do at this stage is find a contest online that might award you a badge and a now wait-list only hotel room. But, all is not lost (yet). There are countless off-site events all over the San Diego area. We give you all you need to know on that score. Or you might think of attending another Comic Con. Read on for more about hot Comic Cons all over the globe.
And what buzz is there about the SDCC? Well, there's plenty. From what's hot in movies and television to cosplay contests, Comic Con exclusives, panels and autograph opportunities. Comic Con San Diego (also known as Comic Con International) is a massive event held at the San Diego Conference Center. It started as a convention of comic book geeks way back in 1970. It now embraces pop culture from anime to video games and fantasy novels. Alongside its seminars and star-studded panels, it presents previews of upcoming films; a film festival of comic-inspired action, fantasy and horror movies. There are exhibitors, from movie studios, to TV networks, comic book publishers and collectors, together with related collectible vendors. Along its aisles wander cosplay hopefuls, adult film stars, and Hollywood mega-stars. Some say it is over-crowded, but Forbes calls it 'The Largest Show Of Its Kind' in the world. It's the place to see and be seen.
Here's what's hot and what's not at SDCC and beyond.

1 Beyond San Diego - A World of Comic Cons
Comic Con is a worldwide phenomena. According to Wikipedia, there are over 50 conferences held outside the U.S., from India to Egypt to England. In the U.S. some 40 conferences are held from coast to coast. The biggies are held in California and New York, but you would be hard pressed not to find one coming to a location near you. As you might expect, the season is busiest March to October, but Comic Cons can be found almost any time of the year in places you would never suspect, from Mississippi to Oregon. So, get your Google fingers typing, dust off those cosplay outfits, and be prepared to be beamed up into another universe.
