Bear Alley contributor Richard Sheaf dropped me a line mentioning an idea relating to old comic book convention souvenir books. "I've collected all the UKCAC brochures but couldn't (and still can't) find a list of who did what in them. So I thought I'd do it myself! There's some interesting stuff in them that might otherwise escape attention." I'm pleased to present the results here as an occasional series.

  1. That was my very first comic convention. I paid something like £7-50 for the two days, plus £10 for accommodation so I didn't have to travel up by tube on the Sunday. If I recall correctly the place I stayed was near Old Street, so I had to travel by tube anyway...

    Somewhere in that catalogue is my name, along with all the other early applicants!
