Northwest Comics Fest: A Free Comic Con For All?

Lydia Roberts L. K. Roberts
January 15th, 2016

I am a proud Blerd who lives in the Pacific Northwest home. My dad had an interest in comic books and instilled a passion for them in me. After decades of being a Marvel Fanatic, I got sucked into the DC whirlpool that was The New 52 launch. Currently, I am moving more into various independent and non-mainstream titles. I am a proud supporter of local artists, comic book creators, and comic book businesses. My two goals as a writer for ComiConverse are 1) to highlight new, little-known, and/or diverse titles, artists and writers, and work that is coming out of the smaller publication houses and 2) to address issues of race, gender, and sexual orientation in comics and the industry.

Northwest Comics Fest: A Free Comic Con For All?

As many of us know, the cost of attending comics-themed fan events has been rising in recent years. Our Lydia K. Roberts took a look at one entrepreneur who's taking on that challenge with a passion.

According to the 1969 Comic Art Convention Progress Report, admission for a single day of the three-day event in New York City was $1.50 and $3.00 for all three. Rates for rooms at the Statler Hilton Hotel, the location of the convention, started as low as $15, and hotel guests could attend the convention for free.
