What did comic book conventions look like 23 years ago?

With WonderCon next week, let's take a stroll down memory lane and check out some retro tableaus from the 1988 WonderCon.

This footage — which includes such comic luminaries as Stan Lee, Tom DeFalco, and Will Eisner — was cataloged by YouTube user Joe Field, who has several more videos of the 1988 WonderCon. For more looks at fandom before the internet, here are some scenes from the New York Anime Club in the 1980s and a snapshot of the 1973 New York Star Trek convention.
