Here we are again.
Comic-Con attendees are about to descend on downtown, packing streets and crowding the Convention Center. And this week, Mayor Kevin Faulconer put immediate fears to rest and announced the massive entertainment fest would stick in San Diego through 2018.
But the city’s still far from that expansion Comic-Con organizers and many fans have long said is necessary to keep the event in the long term.
For now, a legal challenge has halted the $520 million waterfront expansion and there’s talk of adding convention space elsewhere.
