Feedback form is now closed.
From the first Sci-fi conventions of the 1930’s, to the game changing San Diego Comic Con, learn the history of the rise of fan conventions. Did the artist alley start at Comic Con or Comiket? How did furry cons from sci fi? What is the future of My Little Pony cons? With almost a decade of research, join the author of “West Point of the West” and “Convention Confidential” for a look at the history of the public side of fandom culture.
