All Day Comic-Con International Comic-Con International returns to the San Diego Convention Center. Comic-Con is the longest continuously-run comics and popular-arts convention in the U.S.

With attendance topping 130,000 in recent years in a convention center that has maxed out in space, the event has grown to include satellite locations, including hotels and parks. Many celebrity appearances, costume competitions, art installations, lectures, workshops, and the Comic-Con International Independent Film Festival take place outside of the Convention Center, creating a campus-type feel for the convention in downtown San Diego.

Admission/Cost: Comic Con is Sold Out

5:30 PM Stage: Comedy of Errors The North Coast Rep Theater School presents Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors

The Comedy of Errors tells the story of two sets of identical twins that were accidentally separated at birth. Antipholus of Syracuse and his servant, Dromio of Syracuse, arrive in Ephesus, which turns out to be the home of their long lost twins, who go by the same names: Antipholus of Ephesus and his servant, Dromio of Ephesus. When the Syracusans encounter the friends and families of their twins, a series of wild mishaps based on mistaken identities lead to wrongful beatings, a near-seduction, the arrest of Antipholus of Ephesus, and false accusations of infidelity, theft, madness, and demonic possession.

6:30 PM Breaking Borders At Comic-Con The annual panel at Comic-Con celebrating Chicano Popular Arts and Comics will focus this year on the theme of Breaking Borders, between nations, between communities, between art forms and between peoples. This year, Athenaeum Arts Logan curator Danilea Kelly will be moderating and introducing Mexican graphic novelist Claudia Dominguez, author of "More Than Money", her harrowing account of escaping to San Diego from Mexico City as a refugee. There will be an exhibition of her graphic novel "More Than Money" at the Athenaeum Art Center in Logan coinciding with the first week of Comic-Con.

Joaquin Junco - San Diego-based political cartoonist now assisting co-exhibitor Lalo Alcaraz on his award-winning syndicated newspaper strip 'La Cucaracha'.
Mario Torero - Chicano Artist, activist, muralist and this year's inductee into the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian.
Amati Comics publisher William A. Nericcio, (an SDSU Publishing imprint).

The Tularosa Gallery on 2602 Imperial Ave [corner of Imperial & 26th Street in San Diego 92102], will
be exhibiting the original works of the Breaking Borders panellists including Lalo Alcaraz, Joaquin Junco, Claudia Dominguez, and Mario Torero as well as border artist Jose Hugo Sanchez Jimenez. Chicano art is an American art form with a rich tradition of story-telling murals, art, cartoons and comics. Recently there's been a great deal of controversy in the news regarding the crossing of borders, and Central American political refugees, as to who does and does not have the right to reside in America.

Comics, Artists and Cartoonists are confronting and bringing light to this issue for humanitarian reasons and through these efforts are raising money for the Border Angels, the border relief organization.

You can do something effective to stop the barbarism at our borders!

In the forest, they encounter a variety of memorable characters, notably the melancholy traveller Jaques who speaks many of Shakespeare's most famous speeches (such as "All the world's a stage", "too much of a good thing" and "A fool!
