#09: The 2015 Comic-Con Campus!

Comic-Con International 2015 Toucan Tip of the Day

It seems like every year Comic-Con International grows a bit more. This year there’s another new addition to what we like to call the “Comic-Con Campus,” a group of downtown programming venues that are outside of the Convention Center. We’ve put together a handy-dandy  map to show you where they all are in relationship to the mothership: the San Diego Convention Center.
