Revisiting creator table pricing

 

Years ago, we used to give local creators free space at the shows. That worked for a few years, until last minute cancellations started getting out of hand, so the deal was changed to $5 or a novel/graphic novel I could use for school. And if someone didn’t show up, they’d pay $10 or two books before they could rebook a new spot. Which worked for a few more years, until someone gave me graphic novels clearly marked “Adults Only,” and told me to take them or leave them. At which point, the current charge for creator space was implemented.

 

That said, starting with the September 11th show, we’re going to go back to free space for local creators and see how it goes. The space will be 3’, good for one person, and everyone who books before flyer copy is sent out to my designer will be listed on the show flyers. (If a full table is required, contact me for publisher pricing.) The only things that can be sold at these spaces are products the creator has made or products featuring their work. (I.e., no selling personal collections of comics or Pokemon cards.) If I’m unfamiliar with who you are, I’ll need a physical sample of your work/what you plan to sell, which you can either give to me at a show, or mail to PO Box 48873, Bentall Station, Vancouver, BC, V7X1A8.

 

There is limited space per show, and bookings will be on a first-come, first-served basis. If a creator is a no-show, a minimum $20 donation to the Comic Legends Legal Defense Fund must be made before space will be made available to them again.

 

To reserve a spot, either email me at lswong@uniserve.com, or call 604-322-6412 and leave a message.

May 2022 Comicon

The next Comicon at Heritage Hall (3102 Main St) will take place on Sunday, May 15th, from 11AM – 5PM.

 

Guests at the show will be Moritat (Invincible Red Sonja, Rat Queens, All Star Western, The Spirit, Elephantman), Michael Kluckner (Julia, 2050, Toshiko), and Soaring Penguin Press.

  

While we won’t be checking vaccine passports, we are asking everyone to continue wearing a mask while in the building.  (Masks will be available at the door for people who forget.) Entrance to the show will continue to be through the lobby doors, and exit through the front doors in the room.

 

Admission to the show is $5 per person; kids under 14 get in free and we’ll have free comics at the door for all kids.

Vendor tables are $55/centre and $65/wall.

 

For more information or to book a table, either email lswong@uniserve.com, or call 604-322-6412.

March 2022 Comicon

 

The next Comicon at Heritage Hall (3102 Main St) will take place on Sunday, March 20th. As usual, show hours are 11AM – 5PM.

 

Guests at the show will be Randy Stone (Bullet, The Sensational Swan), Dylan Moore, and Soaring Penguin Press.

 

Once again, no door prizes, to discourage people from standing around in a large group, but we’ll be giving out free copies of THE SCORCHED #1, while supplies last, to paid attendees, and there will be free comics available for kids, too.

 

There are supposed to be new changes to the Provincial COVID restrictions this week, but we’re still going to be checking for vaccine passports at the door and requiring everyone to be masked while in the building. Entrance to the show will be through the lobby doors, and we’re asking people to exit through the front doors in the room.

 

Admission to the show is $5 per person; kids under 14 get in free.

Vendor tables are $45/centre and $55/wall.

 

For more information or to book a table, either email lswong@uniserve.com, or call 604-322-6412.

Change of plans...

The health restrictions released by the provincial government today have put a temporary halt to indoor organized gatherings of any size until January 18, so the January 9 Comicon is cancelled.

 

Next show is scheduled for March 20th.

2022 show dates

 Here are the scheduled dates for next year’s shows:

 

January 9

March 20
May 15
July 10
September 11
November 13

 

Unless things change in the next couple of weeks, the January 9th show will be happening, with the Covid protocols we’ve been using for the last two shows (vaccination passport checks, masks on while in the building, separate entrance and exit doors, limited number of people in the room).

 

Flyer for the show should be ready by the end of the week. Guests are Randy Stone (Bullet, The Sensational Swan), Dylan Moore, and Soaring Penguin Press.

 

There will still be free comics at the door for kids, but the show’s a week before The Scorched #1 comes out, so we’ll be giving away copies of that in March.

Admission is $5.00 per person, and kids under 14 get in free.

Dealer Tables are $45/centre and $55/wall. To book a table, email lswong@uniserve.com, or call 604-322-6412

Once again, we will not be running door prizes, but will be giving out free comics to kids and a copy of Gunslinger Spawn #1 to each paid attendee, while supplies last. 

We will be checking vaccine passports and ID at the door, and everybody in the building must be wearing a mask. 

Admission is $5 per person, and kids under 14 get in free.
