COMIC BOOKS HISTORY FEATURETTE:   This Blog's  'Main Feature' today was about 'The State of Comics Retailing in Metro San Diego Part II'.

One of the others features of San Diego that I have blogged about a few times is that in the city of Carlsbad in North San Diego County, was the Ranch Home of Leo Carrillo, star of many movies, plus co-star on the "Cisco Kid" TV show.  The comics connection to this topic is that there were 40 issues of the 'Cisco Kid' comic book that were published by Dell Comics from January 1951 to October/December 1958.  We were at the Ranch this weekend celebrating a birthday and ran across the following event that is coming up very soon in December for the holidays of which I wanted to bring to your attention:  

The City of Carlsbad is sponsoring 'Holiday At The Rancho', which is being held Saturday, December 5th, 2009 from 5PM to 8PM, as seen in the photo below.  There are additional details as to what is happening at this event, including photos with Santa!

While you are there, be sure to check out the several exhibits of Leo Carillo's memorabilia, including the portrait of Leo riding his horse Conquistador, (shown above).  Plus at times a few copies of the Cisco Kid Comic Books are shown under glass! 

Please Note:  If you can't make it to this event, but find yourself in the San Diego County area during the Summer / early Fall Seasons, be sure to check out the Leo Carrillo Film Festival. We attended all but one this past Film Festival Season.  Here's a link to our last blog post for this season!
