Comic-Con (officially known as "Comic-Con International: San Diego" or San Diego Comic-Con International) is traditionally a four-day event (Thursday through Sunday — though a three-hour preview night on Wednesday is open to professionals, exhibitors, and some guests pre-registered for all four days) held during the summer in San Diego, California, United States, at the San Diego Convention Center. Comic-Con is both the name of the annual event and the common name of the organization.
The organization also represents WonderCon Anaheim and APE (Alternative Press Expo, San Francisco).
Blizzard Entertainment doesn't usually have much involvement in this convention, but has had Q&A panels.
Warcraft movie director, Duncan Jones, held a signing at the Blizzard booth on July 26 at the 2014 Comic-Con. The official movie logo was also revealed at the Legendary Pictures booth. There was a panel, but it was mostly to push products with almost no useful info.
