Comic-Con 2009 kicks off Thursday, July 23, at the San Diego Convention Center (preview session Wednesday evening, July 22). Sold out in advance, again.
“Comic-Con International is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular art forms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.”
“Programming at Comic-Con 2009
“With more than 400 events over all four days, Comic-Con’s program slate is the largest in the nation.

(Comic-Con has a tradition of premiering network shows months before they first air, with past examples including Lost, Heroes, Chuck, Pushing Daisies, Reaper, and many more.)…”
