Welcome to Comic-Convention Memories, a venue for all your comic-convention memories. With your help, we’d like to have pages for every comic convention, a page for everyone who’s worked on a con or been a guest or dealer at one, for anyone who has a good story to tell, as long as someone is willing to contribute the words and pictures. Data storage is cheap and no trees need be injured in the making of this site. Just click on the “Contact” tab at the top of the page and let us know what tales you have to tell.
