Our quarterly comics-only con returns on January 20th. I expect 20+ board members in attendance, maybe 30. Should be a ton of fun. Wormboy and I put this one on.

$5 admission. Parking generally not too tough within a few blocks (fall football Saturdays excepted) and just blocks from BART.

The comics are mostly vintage and this is an old-school show in every way. This show will have the best golden age lineup we've ever offered.

Six days of Christmas!  Rolling out the dealer lineup in the holiday fashion.

First day of Christmas:

Happy to say that we have Bunky Brothers vending at this show! Their convention stock is always stunning and they always have killer new books. They only do about six shows a year, so this is a special opportunity to check out their offerings.

We're also very happy to announce that Harley Yee is setting up at this show. I believe this is the first one-day show he's set up at in Northern California in about five years. Everybody knows Harley and the kinds of books he has. Just his C inventory at the last SFCC was so great.

Not quite as much GA selection but sold out 170 x 8' tables for a one day Vancouver, BC Comic and Toy Show

at end of Feb, 2018. Also, there is a separate 2 day Oct, 2018 downtown Vancouver, BC comic and anime con in the planning stages but not quite confirmed yet. :wishluck: Different organizers than the usual suspects. (the Brothers, Fan Expo's parent company, Brasco, or Leonard W.)

Second day of Christmas, your true comic loves (me and Wormboy) gave to you:

National dealer Ted Van Liew and Superworld Comics. Board member and Overstreet advisor, in that order, ha ha. He'll be bringing the gamut, including some original art, I hope. I believe he hasn't done a Northern California show since since 2011.

We are really happy to also announce that Phil Schlaefer/Champion Comics will be set up. Hopefully he will be an ongoing presence at our show. Great books, just bought a great in-depth early ASM collection, I've seen a Cap #1 on his wall before, etc.

Awesome, I don't have to PM woowoo about this show now!

As for our Canadian friends, direct flights available. You know you want to! You can tour the HOC warehouse space before or after. You can also go see the toilet seat original art at Isotope Comics.

Third Day of Christmas announcements:

Happy to have Alan Bahr/Heroes Comics of Campbell setting up. Hopefully he'll bring some original art and he has a great stock of books.

Also really pleased to have Brian Peets/A-1 Comics of Sacramento. Loads of golden age among his gigantic stock. I've seen him have a whole long box of Fawcetts at a show. :applause:He also generally gets multiple copies of the big Marvel keys every year.

Haha, I think anyone who knows anything about cons knows that Terry's show is the best one day thing anywhere, ever!  As I said in last Berkeley show's thread, if you had to choose between attending his or attending our quarterly show, attend his!  Terry, you do a great job.

Actually, when the stars align and we get Terry's Comics setting up, that's when we'll have arrived. Love his GA inventory and passion for those books.

With "venue unavailable" dates and tons of NorCal shows to dodge, it's always tough to find the right dates for four quarterly shows a year.

Terry will show he loves doing show's that look good and your show is starting to look good. I think you should give Terry a pm and talk him into going ^^ come on Terry $$ to be had (thumbsu
