Rob Liefeld headlines biggest VA Comicon EVER Nov 23-24, 2013
Promoter of the VA Comicon in Richmond
Greetings, Comics Fans!
This is Brett at the VA Comicon. We are pleased to announce the return of the 2-Day VA Comicon on Nov 23-24, 2013 in a BIG way! We have partnered with Painted Visions Comics to bring the largest comic book show EVER in Virginia (10 times the size of our 1-day shows!) to the Richmond International Raceway Complex (Where they have the NASCAR races!), with FREE parking for everyone.
This will be a COMIC BOOK show, catering specifically to the fans who actually COLLECT comic books. ALL of our vendors sell comic books (only 12 vendor spaces left!), and ALL of our guests work in the industry. Spread out over 36,000+ square feet, each vendor will have a full 10×10’ booth to showcase the finest in new and vintage comic book collectibles.
Our guest of honor at the show is Rob Liefeld, the creator of X-Force, which sold more copies of the same comic than any other comic book ever. Rob is also the creator of DEADPOOL. Joining him will be Wolverine co-creator Herb Trimpe, Kevin Keller creator Dan Parent, Atomic Robo creator Brian Clevinger, He-Man artist Pop Mhan, GI Joe artist SL Gallant, FX’s Archer’s Character Designer Sam Ellis, Top Cow President Matt Hawkins, and the list goes on and on!
We will also have the #1 worldwide expert on vintage comics, Previous CGC president, and current head buyer for Heritage Auctions, Mr. Steve Borock to answer your questions about investing in comic books, and we will have several lectures about investment level comics.
Do you like Exclusives? Extreme VIP passholders (only 50 available!) will receive a Rob Liefeld Ltd 250 Exclusive Comic featuring the Ladies of Brigade (his new series!), a Ltd 100 Robert Crumb licensed T-Shirt, and a Ltd 50 Archer print by Sam Ellis, the character designer on the FX series! Two-Day adult passes are less than $20, and Children’s passes are less than $10. If you register to get a Vendor booth, you will receive a LTD 250 Top Cow Aphrodite IX comic book with a holiday cover by Fan-fave creator Randy Green! Other exclusives WILL be announced soon!
We want this show to be affordable! Other shows cost so much to get to and stay at, and get inside, there is nothing leftover for comics. We want to BUCK THAT TREND! We are less than 2 miles from I-95 and I-64. Hotels in the area average $65 a night. Flights, train tickets and rental cars are some of the cheapest in the country. There are even RV hookups for $25 on-site! Vendor booths are 10×10 and small press tables are 6’. We will be presenting this show in the round, which means there are no corners or endcaps. This show is going to be amazing. We can’t wait to see you there!
