Batton and Jackie had a great time at this friendly, intimate local show, held at the Town & Country Hotel in late April. The theme this year was the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, featuring Boris Karloff’s daughter, Sara.
Among the many guests were Maggie Thompson, Karen Berger, Mike Royer, Scott Shaw!, Greg Bear, Trina Robbins & Steve Leialoha, Anina Bennett & Paul Guinan, Rob Salkowitz, Mark Evanier, Bill Stout, Alex Nino, Kelly Dunn, Nancy Kress, Steve Niles, Willie Ito, Floyd Norman, and David Scroggy.
Jackie appeared on programs celebrating the 50th anniversary of “The Prisoner”; John Stanley and Little Lulu; and Walt Kelly and Pogo. She was also joined by Stout, Scroggy, Evanier, Gene Henderson, and Phil Yeh to talk about the 1977 San Diego Comic-Con and the SDCC’s El Cortez days. Here are a few photos from the weekend.
