We're cancelling this event, and will plan another one in the future as soon as it makes sense to do so. -Gene

We're hosting a free comic book swap in the Seattle area on Saturday, April 4! We've rented out an entire brewery, Good Brewing in Woodinville, so we'll have the entire space to ourselves to buy, sell and trade comics, pulps, and OA. We've already got 30+ RSVPs and a couple folks coming from out of state and one from Toronto! There will be tables set up for everyone, but with limited space and to ensure everyone has some space to set up, please limit yourself to 3-4 shortboxes max. Leave the full convention setups at home. 

We teamed up with Kihei Collectibles to put on this event after hosting a successful brewery comic book swap at Terry O'Neil's Cal Comic Con last year. And of course, nothing goes better with comics than craft beer, so we decided to rent out a brewery again and we'll definitely be picking up a few rounds for attendees. There are tons of collectors in the Pacific Northwest so we just wanted to do something fun to bring the community together and encourage some buying, selling and trading. We'll be capping the attendance at around 50 people due to space limitations, so please RSVP at the link below if you can make it!

More details in the flyer and please RSVP at www.shortboxed.com/seattle

I've also included a few pics from last year's Cal Comic Con swap at Stereo Brewing to give you an idea of what to expect. Note: the pics are from an event we hosted in Southern California, this new event is in a different brewery near Seattle.

Since Canucks are allowed, Mister Ed and I have signed up via Eventbrite. Thanks for the new event north of Seattle so closer to drive to from Vancouver, BC. :idea:

Sure is! Had to add some PNW flavor to the flyer.

There are over 30 RSVPs so far, and the brewery capacity is somewhere between 30-50. We'll be promoting it hard at ECCC with flyers at dealer booths, so there should be a pretty good turnout! 

Comics and beer, what more do you need? :)

Can you get this location if Emerald City Comic Con is Cancelled?

No ECCC, no problem! We're already looking into expanding this event and bringing tents to setup outside if more people RSVP. 

The comic swap is completely free, btw :)

Hope Craft and Beer is still going ahead.

Bellingham (WA) Comicon just announced cancellation of their Sat. Apr 25, 2020 show but it's projected crowd was over 250 collectors, dealers, fans. Also, a large New Westminster (BC) 2.5 day annual antique/collectibles fair had to be cancelled for that same weekend to Apr. 26, 2020 due to Covid-19 fears. Now Apple stores (: and Disneyland closed for at least 14 days. Terrible loss of jobs, retail sales and tourism but stay healthy.
