The Number: Comic-Con, a financial powerhouse?

The week when nerds rule the world is finally here. The doors at Comic-Con are open. What started as a small comic book convention in 1970 is now a monstrous four-day event that showcases the best in comics, sci-fi, film and television.

Every year 130,000 fans descend upon San Diego Convention Center, often in costume, for seminars, signings and sneak previews of upcoming films. Even some of my Bronies are there.

Which brings us to tonight's number: 162 million.

According to the San Diego Convention and Visitor's Bureau, that is the amount of money Comic-Con generates for San Diego each year.
