We hate to See you leave...
Mike DeCarlo was ready to come to Rochester on July 7th but fate intervened. Mike reluctantly notified us that he will not be able to attend and has cancelled his appearance for the July 7th & 8th show. The good news is that Mike has told us that he is eager to come to the next show once we have the dates planned! On the upside, we also have booked several other artists and will be announcing them next week!

we love comics... just like you
We'll drive six hours to get that Marvel Grail eluding us since trading it in 1980. We'll buy five copies of the same book... just 'cause. We're avid collectors and marketers, but there are some books off limits - the ones we'll pass onto the next generation. We've been waiting for a true comic book show designed for the comic book reader, trader, collector, buyer, and dealer. If you're like us, Empire Comic Fest is the show you've been waiting for too.
Thousands of comics for sale!
From $1 Bins to CGC / CBCS Golden, Silver, Bronze, and Modern Key Books!
