Blast from the Past
Most people know that there was an El Paso Comic Con before Zia Comics took over in 2016. Did you know there was a comic con in El Paso way back in 1982?! Neither did we. Mr. Rick Bocanegra was one of the founders of El Paso Comic Con 1982. I guess that would make him one of the EPCON Godfathers.
Rick was gracious enough to give us a copy of the Events Guide from that year. We have scanned it and included it in this post for everyone to reminisce. We also found some old El Paso Herald Post and Accent mentions of the 1982 El Paso Comic Con.
If you attended the 1982 El Paso Comic Con we’d love to hear your story. Regale us with your memories of that ground-breaking event.
