Comic Con…With Kids?
If you want to see a nerd in its natural habitat (or if you’re just a nerd longing for home), then any of the Comic Con events across the nation is the place for you.
After all, a Comic Con (short for “comic convention”) is a pop culture extravaganza—a large convention that celebrates movies, television, gaming, books, and (of course) comics. These conventions are attended by tens of thousands of fans and filled with celebrity guests, interactive exhibits, pop panel discussions, and activities galore. There’s the King of all Cons in San Diego each summer, and dynamic regional shows all year long in places like Denver, Dallas, Chicago, Orlando, Portland, and more.
But…what if you’re a nerd with kids? Is it OK to take your whole family to one of these great gatherings in pop culture paradise? Let’s find out.
