Years ago one of the greatest joys of attending a comics convention was the official programme for which many artists would donate a page of artwork. 'Comics 101', held in March 1976, was one of the earliest such events and though I wasn't able to attend in person I did manage to acquire the booklet produced for it. To be honest I'd forgotten all about it but having just accidentally stumbled across it again I thought it'd be interesting to post some of the contributions here - especially as a worrying number of the artists represented are no longer with us.
Thanks to Phil Rushton for the pictures and info on this amazing event..
What is so great about these pictures is some of these artists were in there 80's and things like Casey's Court and Laurel and Hardy seems like such a long time ago..But here they are alive and well in 1976. Its fun seeing the same style they would use for that era..
If anyone actually went to the event it would be fun to hear more...please email me and I'll do a blog post on your experience..I may look green when you tell me;)
