Our 2022 Summer one-day show drew over 800 attendees from 5 different states. Our average attendee comes to the show looking to buy comics and typically is shopping for books in the $1-$50 price range. A small percentage are looking to purchase $1000+ books and all are shopping for 1960's - 1990's comics.
The JCC of Rochester is a great venue for a comic book show. FREE admission for attendees and low cost spaces for vendors ensure not only a higher attendance, but also puts more money in everyone’s hands. Located along the I-90 corridor between Buffalo & Syracuse, we are ideally situated to attract a plethora of fans.
