The JCCS Story:
Jet City Comic Show began during a changing of comic book convention landscape 2009. As more Comic-Con’s become more Hollywood driven and rising costs for fans and vendors, JCCS was started to put the focus back on comic books in the Seattle/Tacoma area.
The goal of Jet City Comic Show is to provide an affordable experience for fans and families. In addition to promoting the comic book industry and expand the awareness of comic books and their creators. But the absolute most important thing for us is for everyone to have fun and enjoyable experience!
