Great location, probably a lot of great dealers, but that Friday night is baffling to me. Why?

I'm confused by the pricing. Is Friday Night admission only with a VIP ticket for 35.00 ?

I think that $35 is for all three days (and an hour earlier on Saturday and Sunday). I don't know if you can pay $20 at the door to get in on Friday night. 

It looks like you can load in on Saturday morning, too, though. So there could be some dealers who aren't even there on Friday night.

Obviously, it's to get those people in early, getting first crack at the good stuff.

Thanks for the reply. I think you are correct, that the 35.00 is for 3 days which includes Friday. However, can you just show up on Friday and pay 20.00 for the one night is the question. It's disappointing that the website is this ambiguous.  I know the show is still a couple months away so maybe they are still in a planning stage. I hope they come on the Boards and advertise a little.

I always get excited for additional local comic shows in my area.  But, I have a hard time paying $20 admission for two days or $35 admission for 2 days and 3 hours.  Where is my 1-Day pass option?

I'm still on the fence about this one.

The fatninja will be set up at this show, and I give nice discounts to boardies. If I have anything you want i'll try to make up some the admission fee. While my stock is not the norm by any means i'll have quite a bit of new stuff with me that I've not dragged to a show before or listed online. My stuff is easy to locate, my short boxes are black and there's a big ugly bald guy standing behind. Don't hesitate to ask for a better price on anything

I went today and it was a well put together show at a nice venue. There were a lot of quality books in the room which is not typical for a local non national type show around here.

We had a really nice time and I hope they put on another show next year. Hopefully the weather cooperates next time as today it was really terrible, maybe the worst I can remember this late in April.
