Con Report: Jet City Comic Show 2014

The con season for me ended this year with Jet City Comic Show, November 8th in Tacoma, WA, and while the show has always been a slow one for me, it was still a quieter end to the season than I’d have liked. Oh well!

Con Report: Jet City Comic Show 2013

For 2013, Jet City Comic Show moved from September to November, and from Seattle to Tacoma.

I offered to share my table with Xib since sharing ended up working out pretty nicely for us at Geek Girl Con, and I was anticipating another kind-of slow show — company is nice to have for kind-of slow shows.

Con Report: Jet City Comic Show

September 22nd was Jet City Comic Show, a small, one-day show a short ride away in downtown Seattle.

I spent most of August totally burnt out from Otakon and most of September was a fervor of unreasonable work deadlines, so other than some half-hearted recounting/verification of inventory, I did pretty much nothing to prepare for JCCS. I really didn’t know what to expect anyway. Other than what’s on their website, I couldn’t find much about the show online. I actually thought it was a first-year show because of the lack of general information, but 2012 is apparently JCCS’s third year. No details (especially regarding attendance) is usually a cause for concern for worryworts like me, but JCCS was such a low-risk venture as a local (especially coming on the heels of Otakon) that I really didn’t think much on it.

It’s whatever! Let’s just go and have fun or something, geez.

Shockingly, I did not see a single Loki cosplayer this entire show.

This report is a relatively manageable 1,853 words.
