Today I found some interesting photos from the 1982 Minneapolis Comic-Con. These photos are on Alan Light’s Flickr page and were taken from the original negatives by Mr. Light. This is a couple of years before I started to seriously collect and research comics, but I would have loved to meet some of those people back then. Remember, all of these photos are by Alan Light. I thank him for these snapshots back in time. Enjoy!
