The official magazine of the convention is Comic-Con Magazine. The event is well attended. In fact, overcrowding is an issue every year. In 2010, the San Diego Convention Centre was filled with more or less 130,000 attendees. The event is too big for the San Diego Convention Centre. Regardless, it will be the home of Comic-con until next year.

The good news is that there is a proposed expansion of the convention centre. The California Coastal Commission approved the expansion of the convention centre costing $520 million. This will increase the space to accommodate more people. The project will be the home of Comic-con until 2016.
