A Little Background....
Mood:  a-ok
Topic: Comic Cons


A Little Background..... 

On myself, as I have taken eBay's suggestion and joined Facebook and started invitations to 'Facebook Friends'!  

This blog post is for those that are new to me / us, as I have blogged it before, but the indexing / search mode on both of our blogs, (we publish two blogs), lack ease of searchability! 

It Was Thirty-Five Years Ago This Summer.... August 16-19th 1973,  that I 'officially' set up as a dealer at the San Diego Comic Con International then known as the SDCC!

I can still remember setting up that dealer table I'm standing behind as shown in the 2nd from the top right photo!

It was at the Sheraton Hotel, Harbor Island, San Diego for the 4th official SDCC Comic Con !

It was my 3rd San Diego Comic Con I had attended, and the second one that I had set up at with a 'dealer' table! The first one I had bought out another dealer on the last day at the El Cortez Hotel and took over his table to see what it was like!

This is the earliest photo that I have of me setting up at a Comic Con  and am very pleased to have it published on several of our web sites' pages!

Currently Tina and I don't set up at Comic Cons to sell, but rather we attend them to pick up additional inventory to sell online as well as to attend programs that she or I have interest in! Then we blog about our thoughts on the upcoming films, TV shows or comic books here!

How the comics world has changed from 35 years ago! 

Be sure to attend a Comic Con in your area to see what you are missing if you can't make the San Diego Con with over 125,000 other attendees next year! Plus buy your memberships online early as they sold out this year for all 4 day and single day memberships. (End of plug, LOL!) 

For those of you that are new to our blog, we have an ongoing comics and pop culture convention here at Make It So Marketing, what with our daily blog posts and listings of items for sale!


Thanks for reading this popular culture - comics - comic books - Comic Cons blog post and come back again!

Yes, that's Michael D Hamersky back in the Summer of 1973 at the SDCC Comic Con with almost shoulder length long hair and a skinny stomach! Oh and a few hundred comics on top of the dealer table still left to sell!  Funny how so many of those comic books in the photo are worth so much more today than they were worth back then!
