Did you hear that sound of trampling over the weekend? That was the sound of thousands of comic book geeks migrating to the West Coast to be front and center for San Diego Comic-Con. The convention used to feature just a few collectors hocking their old comics in order to afford their studio apartment rent and a couple of heavy-set nerds attempting to squeeze into their old homemade superhero outfits, but Comic-Con has grown immensely over the decades.
Now San Diego is a hub for movie studios and comic companies to drop bombshell announcements on fans in order to create mild hysteria among the geek world.
