San Diego since 1990

My first San Diego Comic Con was in 1990. It was the year I spent working for Jim Shooter and Valiant Comics. The convention was a blast but I couldn't stay for the finish. While playing in the comicbook industry softball game, I broke my ankle. I had to lay in my room in the Hotel San Diego waiting for flight back to NYC. Oh well.

Do you keep all your badges from past conventions? For a while I kept them--all the way back to 1987! Then one day, I said, "why am I keeping these?" Think I threw them all out.

I like that yours says "Voyager Communications!"

I think I do keep my badges! I don't know where the rest of them are tho...I might look for them. There is always a story to match the badge.

That would be cool-- a series of posts--each with a convention badge and an anecdote. Can you really find something interesting to say about each one? I don't know how you could beat the broken leg drama!

That's a great story Vince! Was that in 2002?
