Alan Light has scanned and uploaded some fantastic photos from the 1982 San Diego Comic Con (now known as Comic-Con International). Here’s his full set of photos.

One of his photos shows comics legends Will Eisner and Jack Kirby having dinner.

And there is another great photo of a young Frank Miller.

My favorite photo is the panel discussion featuring Denis Kitchen (founder of Kitchen Sink Press and the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund), George DiCaprio (comic book writer/distributor and father of Leonardo DiCaprio), Ron Turner (founder of Last Gasp), Clay Geerdes, Kim Deitch, Robert Williams, Dan O’Neill and Leonard Rifas.
