5 FACTS YOU NEVER KNEW ABOUT COMIC-CON
SAN DIEGO – Comic-Con is off and having a lot of fun among the costumes, publicity material, panels, and lack of sex; but there are secrets and little known pieces of FACTRONICS that The Studio Exec have dug up and translated out of Dothraki and into English for your reading pleasure.
1 Comic-Con was started as a comedian convention in San Diego in 1978. Robin Williams, George Carlin and Richard Pryor were in the first panel, but after Billy Crystal and Jerry Seinfeld both branded it as ‘bullshit’, comedians stopped attending and the vacuum was filled by comic book fans who were – amazingly – adults!
2 Simon Pegg and Nick Frost made a film set in Comic-Con called Paul. Though the film was supposed to be about their love of geekdom, both actors were recorded recently saying how much they hate geeks and wished that ‘they would all go away and die’.
3 JJ Abrams frequently visits Comic-Con and wanders around totally undisturbed by fans, due to the fact that he can’t be seen because of the lens flare that surrounds him.
4 The official language of Comic-Con is still Klingon though many are now switching to Dothraki.
5 Although costumes and Cosplay were initially voluntary, it is now compulsory and anyone caught in downtown San Diego without latex can be fined or forced to play some kind of athletic sport, like sex.
