Nostalgic San Diego Comic-Con Photos from the 1970s
The first comic book convention to take place in San Diego was a small affair. The three day convention, Golden State Comic Con was founded by Shel Dorf, Richard Alf, Ken Krueger, Mike Towry, and Greg Bear and organized by Dorf, drew in 300 people in August 1970.
In 1986, now defunct Eclipse Comics brought the world an updated version of the Golden Age character Airboy and his menagerie of supporting characters. The series ran 50 issues with the first 33 issues being bi-weekly 16 page comics.
DC Entertainment is running an open talent search for up and coming artists and all you have to do is draw a page with Harley Quinn committing suicide. Sounds exciting, doesn’t it?!
Well, you can read about it here!
It’s bad enough that Harley Quinn is the sexy, comedic poster child for abused women, but now you can win a contest by making her death “cool” enough for DC’s editors.
DC Entertainment’s judgment with this contest is very suspect. Whose idea was it and how did it make it all the way to the final stages of a contest. Really, DC? Suicide as a contest subject? This really has taken me aback.
I’m starting to think cloning isn’t such a great idea.

I know it’s not “cool” to admit, even in the comic book community, but Superman is my favorite superhero. Yea. That’s right. You read that right. Better than Batman, Cap, Wolverine (or any of the X-Men for that matter), and even Spider-Man. Although, Spidey does run a pretty close second.
