Over the years, Comic-Con has become the focal point for the world of comics conventions.

Comic-Con, San Diego, has presented literally thousands of special guests at its conventions over the years, bringing comics creators, science fiction and fantasy authors, film and television directors, producers, and writers, and creators from all aspects of the popular arts together with their fans for a fun and often times candid discussion of various art forms.

The event has seen an amazing array of comics and book publishers in its Exhibit Hall over the years.

That love of the comics medium continues to be its guiding factor as the event moves toward its second half-century as the premier comic book and popular arts style convention in the world. 

Here are some expressions of that love.
