Have you ever wondered what it would be like to get crushed by tens of thousands of people? Then you may want to walk (or attempt to walk) the Exhibitors’ Hall at Comic-Con. Despite the seeming chaos of the hall, there is actually a method to the madness. Major companies get the center (except for video game companies which get their own corner), artists are shunted as far off to the side as possible, and most of the sellers inhabit one-half of the hall.
But where the crush truly happens is at the insane lines circling the major companies as fans line up for swag and autographs. The usual suspects are all here: DC Comics, Marvel, Warner Bros., Sony Pictures, 20th Century Fox, Mattel, LucasFilm, CBS/Showtime, Lionsgate, Hasbro, and Sideshow Collectibles. I’m not sure why Square-Enix gets such a large booth considering everything they make nowadays is crap. Hit the jump to check out the full map. The 2011 San Diego Comic-Con runs from July 21 – 24th.
