This is What a Comic Book Con Looked Like in 1988

Posted by Michael Sacco on Mar 27, 2011 in Comic Books, Fandom |

We see conventions like Comic-Con as so huge and, well, modern, that for the young (like me) it’s hard to imagine what they were like before the internet, before information got around so easily. Well, we now have video proof! Joe Field from Flying Colors did a promotional video review of WonderCon 1988, and it’s surprisingly … YouTubey. Eerily ahead of its time, even. There are interviews with Stan Lee and Will Eisner, among others, as well as footage and commentary on the con itself. It’s a pretty fascinating piece of video.
