Attention all geeks of the world! San Diego International Comic-Con arrives July 21 – July 24, 2022.
With the comic industry now rising as one of the most successful industries in the world—delivering movies, television series, products, action figures, music and more—the best place to be is at a Comic-Con meeting and greeting fellow fans, celebrities and creators.
The unlimited potential for creativity, fun and exciting surprises from your favorite franchises is what brings people together from all over the world.
To understand the excitement of FF, the New York Post spoke exclusively with Paul Florez-Taylor—known as the Comic King. We put our heads together to create the definitive list of how each zodiac sign acts, enjoys and prepares for Comic-Con. Follow the Comic King for everything that’s hot in geekdom!
Find out what your zodiac sign must know about Comic-Con!
ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19)
Only an Aries’ tenacious and cutthroat attitude can score Hall H wristbands for the Marvel panel. Were they honest individuals who waited in line the night before to get them? Or did they get jacked up on a Venti from Starbucks and mug a poor unsuspecting Thor cosplayer? Who the hell knows? One thing is for certain: nothing can prepare the con floor for Aries energy.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20)
You need a Taurus in your Comic-Con squad. Non-negotiable. True to their nature, a quintessential Taurus is dedicated and well prepared for any last-minute Comic-Con situations that may rise. Is Henry Cavill secretly walking the con floor in a Guy Fawkes mask? Not a problem because your resident Taurus is already following the hashtag and built in a 10-min buffer for a selfie with zaddy Superman as you make your way to the X-Men Reunion panel.
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20)
Geminis are the master of cosplaying. It doesn’t matter if a new look like Emma Frost’s Hellfire Gala dress just debuted in the comics the week before, a Gemini already has the cosplay ready to go and didn’t even sweat the con crunch deadline. And because Geminis are natural scene stealers, all the photographers mouth: “yaaaas” as they descend onto the con floor.
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22)
The most iconic Cancer in Anime is Sailor Moon. She loves comics, playing video games, and living it up before a monster-of-the-week comes crashing in to destroy her everyday life. This is emblematic of how a Cancer does Comic-Con. They know things will hit the fan at some point, but might as well #YOLO at the Hasbro panel and enjoy the new Marvel Legends reveals.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22)
When a Leo enters a Comic-Con all rationality goes out the door. You’ll find them at the DC panel begging for the return of Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy while at the same time slapping down Sam Raimi stans about the characterization of Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. No lie, this Fire sign is savage AF when it comes to their standom.
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22)
Virgos just want to walk the con floor and have a good time. They want to hit up as many panels as possible and don’t have time to debate if Jared Leto or Joaquin Phoenix was the better Joker. They are, however, major Harley Quinn stans and are eagerly awaiting the new season cause their humor can be best described as Adult Swim meets Archer.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 22)
Libras are passionate AF comic stans. They love it all: Dick Grayson’s new solo series all the way through to Battlestar Galactica to even Eternals (we kid). They come to Comic-Con like Captain America waking up in the modern world—with awe and wonderment. However, don’t cut them in line, they’ll go Dark Phoenix on you if you come between them and their Funko SDCC exclusive.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 23 – NOVEMBER 21)
Scorpios roll into Comic-Con like Paris Hilton in Ibiza. There are the star of the show and probably are a guest on a panel or two. They may be doing autograph sessions or they may just be wandering the con floor but one thing is clear: the con starts and ends with Scorpios. Make sure to hit them up for all the party recommendations, they’re well connected and are probably sliding into Ryan Reynold’s DMs.
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 – DECEMBER 21)
Warning! If you spot a Sagittarius at the con, avoid eye contact. First off, they’ll talk your ear off about their fancasting choices for Jean Grey and Storm for the X-Men once they enter the MCU. Secondly, the con never ends for Sagittarius. Even if the convention floor is closed, they’ll be partying it up at Whiskey Girl in the Gaslamp Quarter till the wee hours of the morning. Yet somehow they still wake up on time to be the first back on the con floor the next day.
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19)
Capricorns are excited AF for the Wakanda Forever trailer to finally drop! They are legit excited to see Namor finally enter the MCU and are couch surfing their way through the con just because they need to be IRL for the announcement. This Earth sign is one of the best to attend a con with because their infectious energy will get you excited for the next big thing in pop culture.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18)
This Air sign is secretly excited to see the Rock in the long-awaited DCEU Black Adam film. DC vs. Marvel? They don’t care. They just want to see their fan favorite characters enter the cultural lexicon and monitor box office numbers opening weekend, hoping to see their favorite movies hit the billion dollar marker.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20)
A Pisces just wants two things out of Comic-Con: a Dazzler commission from comic book artist Terry Dodson, and a Marvel announcement at Hall H about the X-Men officially coming into the MCU. They’re easy going, but will find themselves in moments of high anxiety if they find out if Amy Jo Johnson aka the OG Pink Ranger decides to make a last minute con appearance (we wish).
