Comic-Con International San Diego
Over the years, Comic-Con has become the focal point for the world of comics conventions. Comic-Con has presented literally thousands of special guests at its conventions over the years, bringing comics creators, science fiction and fantasy authors, film and television directors, producers, and writers, and creators from all aspects of the popular arts together with their fans for a fun and often times candid discussion of various art forms. The event has seen an amazing array of comics and book publishers in its Exhibit Hall over the years. Over it’s four-decade-plus history, Comic-Con International has continually presented comic books and comic art to a growing audience. That love of the comics medium continues to be its guiding factor as the event moves toward its second half-century as the premier comic book and popular arts style convention in the world.

San Diego Chinese Historical Museum Proudly Presents: Ah Quin
Life, Leadership and Legacy
San Diego Chinese Histotical Society Museum Produly Presesent: Ah Quin: Life, Leadership and Legacy
Experience a rags to riches tale like no other in this exhibit that follows Ah Quin from a missionary school in Guangzhou; through menial servitude in San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and a coal mining camp in Alaska; to the red light district of San Diego where he ascended to the role of Chinatown’s honorary mayor and left an indelible impact on the fledgling city. Presented exactly 100 years after his untimely death, this collection of never-before-seen artifacts generously donated by Jeanie Ming and other Ah Quin descendants captures the indomitable spirit of early Chinese Americans whose struggle for economic survival produced a unique transnational culture. Join the museum in celebrating one of San Diego’s lesser-known founding fathers on the very block where he raised his twelve children in the heart of the Chinatown he helped create.

The Chinese Historical Museum is located one block from the Horton Grand Hotel.
