For those of you all who have very recently taken a migration and moved to planet Earth, a comic book convention or comic con is an event with a primary focus on comic books and comic book culture, in which comic book fans gather to meet creators, experts, and each other. Comic-cons were traditionally organized by fans on a not-for-profit basis, though nowadays most events catering to fans are run by commercial interests for profit. Many conventions have award presentations relating to comics .

With that being cleared,there are some facts that still remain unknown to the residents of planet Earth,which is why we have taken the honour of shedding some light on this issue :

1.The first ever Comic Con was organized in 1970 in San Diego and had 300 attendees only. At that time the well known comic book creator Jack Kirby (the creator of Captain America, Hulk and other popular „Marvel comics) participated as a guest.

2.In 2015, Salt Lake City received 1784 people dressed up like superheroes according to extremely strict rules. This allowed to break the Guinness World Record of 1530 cos-players that was achieved in 2011 in Cangzhou, China.

3.)On April 8, 2017, in Dubai‘s ,Comic Con street artists from all UAE created the biggest stencil graffiti and received a Guinness World Record for this creation. Stencil graffiti was created by the theme of comic books and covered 11 square meters of wall.
