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.

Mamma mia! My first Con! Chez Fleener remains my gold standard for accommodations.

Thanks everyone!!! To use an old phrase in a new way:

"If you can remember every day, every name and every face at the Con, you weren't there!"

I think MAYBE I averaged 4 hours a sleep...not daily, but throughout the whole friggin' thing. Ah, youth!
