Comic-Con 2061

April 29, 2010 - 10:46 am

Comic-Con will stay in San Diego for another 51 years, according to a travel brochure from the year 2061 that fell through time and ended up in our browser this morning.

The  electronic brochure from Destination Travel*  says that over the next half-a-century the ocean levels will rise to submerge  San Diego and the convention will become the city’s primary economic interest:

Long gone are the early days of the con, when a mere 125,000 fans filled the entrance halls. Today, over one million fans fill the con’s 44 subterranean halls to maximum capacity (future plans include annexing Tijuana for even more space–so stay tuned!) The convention, which now last over 2 weeks, nets over 75% of the city’s annual budget costs and has an esteemed place within the community. Some even think that without the con’s earnings San Diego would be swallowed by the encroaching desert or drowned in the rising sea.

The three-page brochure also discusses how city officials lifted a ban on certain mutant powers for the event and reveals the lists of seminars at the 91st anniversary of the convention.

* The agency is affiliated with the graphic novel Blue Shift.

    The future, apparently, is now.
