I like to call it the smaller Seattle con with a big heart for comics! The Jet City Comic Show is returning for its third year in on Saturday, September 22, 2012 at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall.
“We’re proud of the fan feedback that we received last year and feel we’ve put together an even better show this year,” says co-founder James Taylor. “Jet City Comics Show is a fan friendly event, a chance for attendees to have fun, be entertained, browse through comics and discover some fantastic artists and writers.”
Secret Avengers artist Gabriel Hardman, Chris Roberson (writer: iZombie and Cinderella) and Dave Roman (creator: Astronaut Academy: Zero Gravity) are featured comic book creators.
The Northwest is a hotbed and home of many comic book creators. The show will feature local writers and artists, including:
Brom – World Renowned Fantasy Artist
Amy Brown – Fantasy & Fairy Artist
Matthew Clark – Ghost Rider, Spider-Man
Colleen Coover – Bandette, Gingerbread Girl
Emi Lenox – Emitown
Michel Gagné – Renowned Animator, Creator of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
Natalie Nourigat – Between Gears, My Boyfriend is a Monster: Wrapped Up in You
Paul Tobin – Bandette, Marvel Adventures
“Jet City Comic Con….It’s about comics.” says artist Matthew Clark. “The fans are great I love these types of shows. I want to help this show out and I plan to be here every year if they’ll have me. I have fun here and that’s what makes it awesome”
Jet City will feature two costume contests, a Steampunk contest organized by SteamCon. The other will be a traditional superhero / scifi costume contest run by the D20 Girls Project who aim’s to promote women in gaming and comics.
The comic book community always gives back. The show will also be working with local charitable organization Ronald McDonald House.
