San Diego Comic Convention

I've been attending the San Diego Comic Convention since 1985, and have many photos of comic professionals, icons, fans, models, movie stars, rock stars, and exhibitionists who mingle with the Great Unwashed every year, for 4 days straight, (usually in the muggiest, hottest time of year).

The majority of these photos were taken with an old school 35 mm Bell 'n' Howell camera that my brother gave me in 1968. I also used a hand held light meter. That's the "thing" hanging around my neck in some of the pix.

Credits to pix taken by other friends are duly noted.

1986


THE COMIC CON NIGHTLIFE

The Hotel San Diego had cheap
rooms, thin walls, drunks, creeps,
bedbugs, and a "no hassle" policy
towards anyone who wanted to
entertain in their rooms. This
was the perfect atmosphere for
after-hours Comic Con parties.

Dennis Worden and
I take moment to pose within
the faux gold leaf mirrors that
adorned every hallway.

I didn't start going to SDCC until the 90's, and I can clearly see that I missed a golden era of sorts.
