During the month of July I was blogging a lot on the then upcoming 40th Anniversary of the San Diego Comic Con International... 

Which was very special to me as I was there almost at the beginning when I first set up as a dealer in 1972.  

Well, for people like me that have enjoyed attending the con some, part, or even all those 40 years, the Comic-Con folks put out two publications celebrating this special event for their 40th Anniversary!  

The first was the regular Comic Con Souvenir Program Book that was distributed to each attendee at the Con.  I enjoyed reading it so much that I blogged about that right away!  

Click Here to see THIS SOUVENIR PROGRAM BOOK for sale!   Click here for that review.  (And If you haven't seen a copy yet, we do have a few left for sale if you click the cover of the souvenir program book showing the SD Toucan. That will take you to the shelf in our online store where it is available.)    

The second publication, the actual hardcover book, was co-authored by Gary Sassaman and Jackie Estrada.  That book is pictured at the top right of this blog post.  Gary and Jackie will both be at this special event.  The event details are mentioned below, taken from the event's web page:
