Topic: Comic Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #4052 - I've been attending what is now known as Comic-Con International: San Diego for many years.
In fact, I set up as a comic book dealer back in 1972 when the convention was known as San Diego's West Coast Comic Convention.
So I've seen it grown from a mini-con to a Mega-Con over the decades.
So has Jackie Estrada, who has attended since the beginning of the convention!
Jackie has taken many photos over the years for her personal collection and recently published a book with many of those photos she had taken over the years included. That was Comic Book People 1, which covered the 1970s & 1980s. That book was published September 10th of 2014.
Now she has published Comic Book People 2, which covers photos she had taken during the 1990s at San Diego Comic Con / Comic-Con International, as well as at the Chicago Comic-Con and WonderCon to the Small Press Expo and APE in the San Francisco area. Actually yesterday was the 'Official Release Date' of the latest book, but I was out of town and missed blogging about it.
So I'm letting you know today of this new book here in my blog and also at my Facebook Fan Page where I will be posting a link as well.
But before I do, I want to provide a more detailed description of the book for you as well as a few links. Here's the details:
