Time Machine: San Diego Comic Con 1988

This year’s show with its lines, security, street teams and skywriting to much for you? Return to the simpler days of San Diego Comic Con 1988 via Ironic Sans and their scans of the program book:

Matt Wagner had (and has) swag, 1988 style.

Here’s a sample of the programming. No panels on L.A. Law or Roseanne, but there is one called “Are comics art?” wondering if they have lasting artistic merit. I seem to remember going to that and seeing Burne Hogarth nearly beaten up by Bill Sienkiewicz and Mike Kaulta.

Yeah, simpler times. But not necessarily better.

    Ok, not fair; I NEED to have the details on that one.

    I thought that picture of Matt Groening was Shelton Drumm.
