Q. Like the Comic-Con was born and what is the connection between WonderCon and Toucan?

A. Comic-Con was created in 1970 to bring attention to comic books, movies and science fiction and literature. The event has become very popular with many more than 130,000 people attending each year.  Now we also operate WonderCon a smaller show that has nearly 60,000 people.  Both events bring attention to comic books and popular forms of art.  Toucan is both our mascot as well as the name of our Official Blog where we release up to date information on our shows.

Q. Why do you think the characters of comics - or otherwise fantastic - have taken hold so much to create the cosplay phenomenon?

A. I think it is wonderful to be able to come to Comic-Con and pretend you are favorite character. At Comic-Con you can be yourself, or you can be your fantasy.  People have embraced this and it creates a very warm and friendly community.

Q. What is your favorite book?

A. It is difficult for me to say. It is like saying who is your favorite child.  I have many favorites but for many different reasons. And every day I know as I read more, there may be new favorites also.

Q. What is the relationship of people with cultures San Diego: cinema, theater, art, music, books?

A. San Diego has embraced Comic-Con. We have been here for 50 years and are excited that they enjoy the event as much as we do.
