1131Re: [pittscomicon] Comicon Update
- Mar 1 10:23 AMI see your point. But I see the con peoples point too. I think it should be more affordable to go to the con. The radisson is raping people 149 a night, Im staying 1 mile up the street (if that) for 74.99 a night.The steel city con charges you like 7 bucks to get in, they have people the comicon wont get, and there is plenty of comics to dig through too. that show is growing more popular every time they have it (Mar 29,30)
I think 10 bucks a day to go to the con is fair, but its just getting out of hand----- Original Message ----

That's nice but how about taking $8 off the entry price? How about
charging that $8 to get into the artist area? How about getting new
vendors so we don't have 5 tables of bootleg DVDs and a guy selling
basement water proofing?
There's too much emphasis on the artist alley and guests and not enough
on the vendors. I go to find stuff I can't get at the local shop and
dig through the bargain bins. The only artist I ever went to see was
Frank Cho and he hasn't been a guest in years. If the guests are such
a draw then the fee to see them won't be an issue and it'll draw more
people, like me, who want to just browse the dealer area.
I've gone to every Con so far. This will be the first one I've missed
and it's due to the over inflated entry fee and lack of new sellers.
Does anyone else feel this way or and I the Lone Ranger here?
