HAS BEEN CANCELLED
Here is a copy of letter posted on Facebook... Sorry guys... We still have the "Bakersfield Comic-Con" going on Nov.22nd.
"Hey Friends... Bad News on the Bakersfield "Mini" Comic-Con front... The Event Has Been CANCELED! Thats Right, you did NOT read this wrong... Canceled.
The event was held as a fund raiser for the Bakersfield Museum Of Art, and it seems they have a new Director and Assist. Director, and they don't seem to want it.
100% of the funds raised went to help the BMOA Art Programs (and kids art programs). And last year cost BFCC about $1000 to put on the show for them...out of pocket. But, we did it to help the Museum (they asked us) and have fun with our local Comic Book scene. This is why we only let "local" exhibitors (the stores) and "local" artists be at the show. We wanted to promote the world we Love and Live in here in Bakersfield. It was worth the money we spent (and didn't get back, it was our donation...that and our time) for you, the Comic and Anime Fans and Friends we have made here in Kern County. The event Raised over $3000 and over 1400 fans attended. You guys are GREAT!
Again, we are sorry for this... It's out of my hands. Please don't hate on the Museum, Erwin and Matt are still good guys and it is not their fault... Also, I have already ordered HUNDREDS of "Free Comic Book Day" Comics... I will be out at 1st Friday in June giving those away at my table. Please come by... They were for you fans anyway.
Also, Please Still Support your local Comic Book Shops on May 2nd for FREE COMIC DAY. Here is a list of Stores participating in the event.. I will be out and about that weekend supporting them too. If you see me, Please say "Hi".
*Silver Wolf Comics
*Man Bites Dog
*The Game Spot
I do want to thank everyone who was volunteering at the show, Steve E. Gordon and Nate Watson who were doing prints, My Wonderful Staff, All the great Cosplayers who came out to help, All the great Exhibitors and Artists who now have to find something to do that day...And most of all... All you AMAZING Fans here in Bakersfield... I feel real bad having to disappoint you... I hate this! I WILL find a place to do this next year, who will welcome us coming in and giving them money with out them having to do anything... Maybe "The Boys & Girls Club"... any suggestion?
So now... Bakersfield Comic-Con... November 22nd... Mark you calendars. Thanks for Understanding.
