Topic: Comic Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4030 - Okay... This is the start of Comic-Con International: San Diego week!
You may ask why so soon? Well... Some pre-Comic-Con parties start Tuesday night this year. I have invites to two of them. Then Preview Night is this upcoming Wednesday night. Plus people get into town starting today.
So I thought I'd make this special blog post as this year is the 25th Anniversary of Comic-Con moving to the San Diego Convention Center! That was in 1991! Whew has time flown by!
So I have already uploaded photos from my different cameras to my Facebook Fan Page over the past few years. I'm going to post the links to each one of the different years of the Comic-Con, as shot through my different cameras. There are more photos in recent years as I switched to digital and took more shots of course.
Here are the links:

2014-Pre Con Party 2014-Preview Day 2014-Thursday 2014-Offsite Events-Friday 2014-Sunday
Whew! And I have more years to upload. But this blog is just on the Comic-Con since it moved to the San Diego Convention Center. I go back to 1972 when I first sold as a comic book dealer at the El Cortez Hotel.
I am looking forward to this year's convention... It is getting harder and harder to make it through the lottery to get tickets. I don't have a press pass, which only gets you in for free. No special privileges in getting into programs, panels etc. This may be the last Comic-Con I attend, as last year I was only able to obtain Thursday & Sunday tickets. This year I have all four days, but missed out on getting Preview Night...
So if you can't go to this year's con, be sure to check back and see the photos I upload for the 2015 con. If you missed earlier cons, take a look at the links above for the year(s) you missed.
(Addendum: When inserting the links I noticed that a few of the photo albums don't have the photos I previously uploaded. When I get a chance, I'll see about re-uploading them. Plus I have more photos that have to be scanned & uploaded as they were not shot with a digital camera. So this is an ongoing proccess for me to do.)
