Spoiler alert!


The Lost panel take the stage in Comic-Con '06 for a Q&A session with fans

Comic conventions are fan conventions held annually to celebrate and promote the comic book, comic art and animation/anime industry. Over the years, they have extended to cover a number of TV shows, movies, video games and other pop culture elements popularized by or associated with the science fiction or fantasy genres. They feature interactive discussion panels, special shows and workshops, and encourage fans to dress up in costumes of their favorite characters (known as "cos-play").

Two of the largest conventions, Comic-Con and Dragon*Con, have in the past showcased material from Lost. Both have also included discussion panels in which Lost writers, producers and cast answered fan questions and showed spoilerish material for the next season. The crossover between the Lost and comic book world is considerable not only due to the overlapping interest of fans in both groups, but also due to the fact that many of the writers are professed fans of comic books and/or former comic writers themselves.
