Shows listed in italics are listed as a courtesy to the people running them, since many of our regular dealers set up at these events. I have no connection to them and am for the most part unable to answer questions about them. Contact phone number or websites are listed for these events. For information on events not in italics, such as availability of dealer's tables or if you wish to be added to the postal mail list (I will need your physical mailing address) to get postcards sent as a reminder for future events in your area you can contact me (Alan) at adm222@epguides.com



Remember when you come to a convention to buy your comics you get to see what the condition is of everything you buy before you buy it (not take someone else's word for it), once you are there you can buy as much stuff as will fit in your car (or truck, van, SUV or on the back of your bike) and not have to pay any extra shipping charges or have the items damaged in transit (unless you decide to do it yourself). Plus you do not risk anything by having to use Paypal, credit card online or send a cheque or cash in the mail to pay for your purchase!


Some dealers have superpowered girlfriends to guard their valuable comics!
