Comic-Con International (Comic-Con) began in 1970 when a small group of comics, movie, and science fiction fans from San Diego put on an event attended by just 300 people. Since then, Comic-Con has grown into a global phenomenon and is widely recognized as the largest and most significant popular arts convention in the world. This exhibit showcases the cover art and publications over the 50-year history of Comic-Con International illustrated by some of the most famous comic book artists including Jack Kirby, Will Eisner, Sergio Aragonés, Frank Miller, Moebius, Alex Ross, Jim Lee, and John Romita Sr. & Jr.
