There are a number of expos and conventions dedicated to science fiction, fantasy, comic books, video games and various other aspects of “nerd culture.”
For this bucket list item I would like to attend at least one of these conventions.
Some leading candidates are:
PAX – the largest gaming specific convention open to the public
Comic Con – San Diego – Largest comic con – focus on comics, cosplay, etc, but also includes some gaming, movies, tv, etc
C2E2 – latest and greatest from the worlds of comics, movies, television, toys, anime, manga and video games
I’m more into gaming, sci fi & fantasy than comic books and cos-play, so PAX or C2E2 would probably appeal more than Comic Con, but Comic Con is one of the iconic events in nerd-dom.
I will update the blog when I am ready to plan my trip.
