The Late 60s Convention Scene! Early Cosplay! Justice Society!

Dig this wonderful 1969 piece on early conventions, from the pulpy pages of the famed fanzine, MONSTERS AND HEROES! Those early (and infrequent) cons sometimes had as few as a dozen frantic fans, but still can't be matched for excitement and fun! Costuming!  Creator meet-and-greets! Original art viewed and traded! And, if you think cosplay is a new thing on the scene, think again! Look at the many wonderful home-made costumes of the various cavortin' comic characters! Click below to enlarge images, and see all about the sensational 60s Silver Age convention world!
