Event description



This will be the 10th annual Jet City Comic Show! For the past 9 years their goal has been to provide a quality old-school comic book convention that is affordable for fans and family friendly (they want you to bring the kids). They have a passion for comic books and their creators, as well as all the related pop culture – truly all inclusive.

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!

We really value the donations and other efforts provided to Comics4Kids INC supporting our Mission of promoting literacy and encouraging imagination! We are a 501 (c)(3) charity!

People who support Comics4Kids INC do so because they have a deep commitment to the human condition of collecting and the need to compellingly communicate the benefits of literacy and imagination! Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law!

So what does Comics4Kids INC do? Our mission is to promote literacy and encourage imagination! We have over 250,000 single issue Comic Book Reading Library dating 1882-2019 for onsite review in a secure, controlled setting. We encourage Stewardship of this wonderful hobby! We also tour the country giving away comics free at conventions and community events! We mail out these comics to families, educators, and crisis intervention groups totally free of charge as well!

Comics4Kids INC has a simple and at the same time expansive mission. What we know is we can foster public support for the goal of empowering children who live in inner city and rural communities with the knowledge, tools, and abilities found in the pages of the premiere illustrated literary medium that is Comic Books!

Strong anti-bullying and all-inclusive messages are found within the pages of Comic Books! We have proven repeatedly that you can change hearts and minds when you present the written word and picture stories in a balanced and thoughtful way!

Our challenge now and the reason we are asking for your donations is that we need to move into a new building! We have outgrown our space! Since 1996, we have given away more than Two Million Comic Books! In the last year alone, Comics4Kids INC direct programs and outreach efforts likely connected with upwards of 10,000 people!

We want to leverage the community to dramatically expand this outreach to take the message about imagination and creativity and their importance to every household!

Currently between static sites, we at Comics4Kids INC are endeavoring to inhabit a 25,000 + square foot building, to house the following:

Main Reading Room, a separate Special Collections Reading Room, an expanded Exhibition Gallery/Convention Hall, Film/Media Screening Auditorium, Seminar Room/Classrooms, Visiting Guest Studios, Salon/Foyer, Collections Archives, Printing Press, Long Term Collector/Institutional Archival Housing (Vault), and a convenient Student Lounge!

We want imagination and wonder in this decade to be like the Science Fiction boom in the 20’s and 30’s. We want an enterprise where our community finally recognizes and understands the potential and importance of this work.

This is a huge vision and I think some of the most important work of our time. Your support will enable this vision and help usher public support for our Comics4Kids INC

Comic Book Reading Library in the Northwest!
