Support The Clifton Comic Book Expo

Raised by 17 people in 19 months
I've been running the Clifton NJ Comic Book Expo for 24 years come this November.  Over the years, we have created an amazing community with the help of our incredible customers, vendors and guest creators.  Everyone leaves their differences at the door and shares their love of the hobby with one another.  It the longest running monthly "real" comic book show in America!  We have supported countless local creators over the decades with free tables to showcase their work and give them grassroots exposure.   The dealer table count for one of our shows is typically 60-70.  Dozens of vendors bring hundreds of thousands of comics.  An average show will feature everything from quarter boxes to hundreds of investment grade Gold, Silver, Bronze and Modern key books... many at a fraction of what they would cost at larger shows with massive overhead.  Most shows of this size would charge $5 or more for admission... at our show admission is FREE!  But, every year, the cost to run the shows increases... while we will NEVER charge admission, we would greatly appreciate help to offset those costs.  We want to continue to offer a family friendly atmosphere where cost to just walk in the door is not a factor... Our goal has been and always will be to grow the hobby!  Based on our average attendance, we forego $2,500 per show by not charging admission.  Multiply that by 10 times a year and you will understand what a labor of love this is... our goal is to collect enough to offset the admission at just one show.  We will be celebrating our 25th anniversary next year... all of our friends that contribute will be listed and thanked in the special program that we will be printing as a souvenir of our quarter of a century of serving the comic book community.  Thank you all for your past, present and future support and friendship.  JP

I've attended JP's shows since I was a young fan and he was one of my biggest supporters since I got into this business and has hosted me as a guest at his shows many, many times. I'm happy to support him.
