San Diego Comic-Con Co-Founder Mike Towry Talks 50th Celebration and Comic-Con Museum | SDCC 2019

It’s a grand celebration.

San Diego Comic-Con International will turn 50 years old this week.

Hundreds of thousands of comic book, television, movies and pop culture fans will descend into Downtown San Diego to celebrate everything in entertainment in the halls of the convention center and the streets of San Diego.

This year marks a huge milestone for the convention and a new beginning with its Comic-Con Museum.

LRM Online caught up with SDCC co-founder Mike Towry at the InfoList Pre-Comic-Con Bash 2019 in Downtown Los Angeles. Towry talked about Comic-Con back then and now. He highlighted the preview of Comic-Con Museum at this year’s celebration, which will be open to badge and non-badge holders.

Towry co-founded San Diego Comic-Con International with a group of friends as a young teenager with Richard Alf, Shel Dorf and Ken Krueger. He also served as an early co-chairman of the convention.

Watch our exclusive interview below for a preview of this year’s festivities.
