San Diego Comic Fest on Oct 19-21

In celebration of the 40th anniversary of the first Comic-Con here in San Diego (August 1972), some of the original founders are hosting an "old-school" San Diego Comic Fest.  This three day event, to be held on October 19 - 21, will revive some of the original intimacy and sense of community of the early years of Comic-Con. Their goal: "to bring creators and fans closer together, to create an environment of creative exchange in a fun, inclusive environment, much as the El Cortez-era Comic-Cons did."

SDSU is involved as well! The SDSU Library Comic Arts Committee and groups of students have a project underway to document this event and to conduct oral histories of many of the founders and attendees of early Comic-Con.
