I am very optimistic that the State ( whoever that is ) does not have the ability to shut down small gatherings.

If they did, Mall and large shopping centers would have to close as well, the economic cost would be substantial.

Not to mention Church, Synagogue, Weddings and other religious gatherings, really doubt we live in that society yet.

HI everyone--our April 4 show has been canceled. The school district just shut down all facilities, including the adult school. We hope to reschedule very soon and should still be able to fit four shows in this year. It's going to be interesting--at the moment, UC-Berkeley is supposed to restart classes March 30 and Berkeley Unified on April 6. But it seems like they could extend another month.

Marc,

Sorry to hear this, but not unexpected.  You always run a first class show.

I was fearing this but it gives more time to sock away spending moolah! And to further research the individual books I should add to my list.

I am really enjoying the new direction of collecting and the Berkeley Con is really responsible for redirecting and reinvigorating my collecting

 Yee Ha.

Would like to know what dates you will figure out to have your show this year. As that will give me more time to squirrel away more loonies.

It seems with the coronavirus as the biggest reason in cancelling a lot of major and smaller comic cons in the months from February to April all over U.S. and Canada. With CDC telling to cancel any events with 250 or 50 people gathering. This is creating within collectors a pent-up feeling in not being able to attend a big con. I am feeling a bit. It’s the geek sense in us ... I want go to a big or small show to rejoice for the fun.

The longer the collectors have to hold back, until the crisis is calmed and go back to normal, the shows going to be hosted later this year... will for sure be crazy!

Late May or sometime in June is the best guess for the next one and hopefully our usual shows the first weekend of August and first of November.

Waiting to see what kind of gathering size will be allowed, but since we only cater to hardcore back issue fans, we will likely be allowed to open months before any pop culture con that also has comics. We'll have a better idea in a few weeks.
