With L.A. Live in place and the recent opening of the J.W. Marriott (the hotel includes convention space inside), Los Angeles could be a prime candidate for Comic-Con's new home. That is, if rumors are true regarding the famous convention that draws some 126,000 people. The convention's contract with San Diego expires in 2012 and locals are scrambling to keep it from moving to Anaheim, Las Vegas or Los Angeles. The Comic-Con board is expected to make a decision next month.
