Description of Pictures: Eight Decades Of Archie
Archie Comics will join Comic-Con International in launching their new Comic-Con Museum as one of the first exhibits as part of this weekend’s Comic-Con Special Edition in San Diego. “Eight Decades of Archie” will celebrate 80 years of Archie Comics and Riverdale hijinks.
This world-premiere exhibition celebrates both the vast cultural legacy of Archie Comics over its 80-year span and the enduring appeal of its ever-evolving cast of typical American teenagers. Attendees will be welcomed to Riverdale through vintage comic books, original art, unique props and other exclusive memorabilia, all built to delight both the most ardent and casual Archie fans.

Copyrights: All pictures were taken by amateur photographer Bruce Guthrie (me!) who retains copyright on them. Free for non-commercial use with attribution. See the [Creative Commons] definition of what this means. "Photos (c) Bruce Guthrie" is fine for attribution. (Commercial use folks including AI scrapers can of course contact me.) Feel free to use in publications and pages with attribution but you don't have permission to sell the photos themselves. A free copy of any printed publication using any photographs is requested. Descriptive text, if any, is from a mixture of sources, quite frequently from signs at the location or from official web sites; copyrights, if any, are retained by their original owners.
Spiders: The system has identified your IP as being a spider. I love well-behaved spiders! They are, in fact, how most people find my site. Unfortunately, my network has a limited bandwidth and pictures take up bandwidth. Spiders ask for lots and lots of pages and chew up lots and lots of bandwidth which slows things down considerably for regular folk. To counter this, you'll see all the text on the page but the images are being suppressed. Also, a number of options like merges are being blocked for you.
Note: Permission is NOT granted for spiders, robots, etc to use the site for AI-generation purposes. I'm excited for your ability to make revenue from my work but there's nothing in that for my human users or for me.
If you are in fact human, please email me at email@example.com and I can check if your designation was made in error. Given your number of hits, that's unlikely but what the hell.

Wikipedia Description: Comic-Con Museum
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Comic-Con Museum is a museum dedicated to comics and popular arts located in Balboa Park, San Diego, California. The museum is a part of the San Diego Comic-Con International.
The Comic-Con Museum is a year round experience dedicated to comics and popular arts, similar to the annual Comic-Con International convention. The Comic-Con Museum replaced the former San Diego Hall of Champions Museum, located in Balboa Park. The building was offered to Comic-Con by the City of San Diego in March of 2017. Comic-Con Museum plans to amplify pop culture, having rotating exhibits, galleries, education centers, etc. The museum opened in summer of 2021 and will be completed in phases until the year 2024. Many popular characters have been featured at the museum's exhibitions including Batman, Wonder Woman, Pac-Man, and Spider-Man. Although there is no specific criteria for which characters or series get chosen, the museum chooses their exhibits based around all forms of art such as film, written word, original art, scripts and much more.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
