About the event
Jet City Comic Show is a family friend comic book convention on November 4-5, 2017 in Tacoma, WA.
Jet City Comic Show began during a changing of comic book convention landscape 2009. As more Comic-Con’s become more Hollywood driven and rising costs for fans and vendors, JCCS was started to put the focus back on comic books and their creators.
The goal of Jet City Comic Show is to provide an affordable experience for fans and families. In addition to promoting the comic book industry and expand the awareness of comic books and their creators. But the absolute most important thing for us is for everyone to have fun and enjoyable experience!
Why should you sponsor?
Sponsoring JCCS is incredibly helpful in our goal of keeping the show affordable for fans, keeping prices as low as we can for vendor tables, as well as giving back to our local community (such as free tickets to active/veterans of our military).
Attendance: 5,500 Expected (4,800 in 2016)
50,000 Flyers and 1,000 Posters are distributed in throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Northern California in addition to British Columbia. Advertising in local media (print/web) and interviews on local news and radio.
Every year at Jet City Comic Show we give free space to local charitable organizations so they can spread the work about their good work and raise money.
In addition, we directly give away 100’s of tickets directly to local military bases as well as Vetix.org who give to veterans.
Thousands of dollars have been raised over the years going to Children’s and Veteran based charities. Both directly from JCCS and through other groups at the show.
We want to give more and raise more money for great causes and could use your help.
