Publisher's Weekly talks with Top Cow's Filip Sablik about San Diego 2009

he San Diego Comic-Con International is full up. With every inch of the San Diego Convention Center booked for the show years ago, and every ticket gone and hotels sold out months in advance this year, the annual comics-themed pop culture extravaganza has gotten as big as it can physically get. Yet in the imagination of the world's enlightened nerds, it continues to grow.

As with most other comics convention this year, San Diego's big show reveals no signs of slowing down or scaling back despite the overall recession. The fantasy economy is still strong, with movie studios planning lavish displays and swag to bribe the fan-boy crowd to spread good word-of-mouth on their projects.
