July 25, 2013 Update:
We will not be organizing a show in 2013 for two reasons:
1) Our time commitments for both personal and business responsibilities have increased dramatically since our last show of November 2011.
2) The two dates being offered to us at the Memorial Coliseum conflict with other larger events at the Rose Garden, which means our attendees would have to pay a higher parking rate, and in one case, a MUCH higher parking rate.
It takes a ridiculous amount of time, between 400-500 hours of organizing and promotion to put on a 7-hour show. Without having that much time available this fall and not being able to secure a good show date, we feel it is best to pass on doing a show, rather than have a less than top-notch show and having attendees pay 2-3x the usual parking rate. The Portland Comic Book Show has been a labor of love rather than an income maker. It has always been our goal to have a comic book show with an affordable admission fee, good parking rates, and low table rents that would allow anyone to sell their merchandise or collections. We're still hopeful that we can achieve these goals in the future.
Second Genesis has over 140,000 comics in various grades posted for sale on a website called Atomic Avenue. For those comic collectors unfamiliar with Atomic Avenue, the site operates much like Amazon.com allowing sellers to post their items for sale. Atomic Avenue is exclusively for comic books and comic related publications, trade paperbacks, graphic novels, art books, just about everything related to comics. Our prices start at just $0.49 for back issue comics. There are over 100 different sellers that have posted over 1,500,000 items for sale on Atomic Avenue.
Check out the site at www.atomicavenue.com
And a reminder that Second Genesis is not a retail store and our warehouse is not set-up for walk-in visitors. But we're always happy to mail order any of the comics we have posted for sale on Atomic Avenue, even if you live in Portland.We appreciate the 34 years of support from creators, fans, exhibitors and look forward to seeing everyone at next years show.
