We’ve definitely seen this over the past few years, and you’ve hit the nail on the head when you say:

“ Comic Cons are increasingly less a place for fans to gather and discuss their favorite overlooked works, and more places for massive corporations and bestselling authors to kickstart marketing efforts.”

I still enjoy seeing the new trailers come out for all the new shows/films and the news about forthcoming comics etc — but Cons have definitely taken on a whole new function in recent years.
