ABOUT THE SHOW
East Bay Comic Con was actually started in a different form in 1979. It was started in 1979 when a few of us couldn't make it over the bay to Bay-Con, the Bay Areas biggest (and one of the first) Comic book Conventions. Since we couldn't make it over to San Francisco that year (Mom got called to work, and we were not old enough to drive yet) we started our own show in Hayward. We called it "Super-Con" a name we used till 2010 in one form or another. In 1995, we started our first 2 day show in Oakland, but, we kept the Hayward show going and started calling it "Hayward-Con" and it was always at Centennial Hall on Foothill Blvd. Well, about 8 years aho, we had to stop using the Hayward building since... they decided to tear it down. It took 4 years to find another space... With a good size room, panel rooms, good parking and still close to Hayward. Well, we couldn't call a show in Concord "Hayward-Con", thus was born... East Bay Comic Con.
