Dealer/Artist Alley Tables
The revised 2011 pdf application is currently available to download directly from our website. Please email me with any questions you may have that aren't covered in the 2011 application.

Reminder for the second straight year we sold out of all tables about 6-8 weeks prior to show time. Last year we filled up 75 tables. Our goal this year is for 100 tables. Currently we have 70 tables filled (up +30 since our last update last month), so don't think it won't happen again.

Special Events: (mark your calendars)
*NEW* "Spokane Comicon presents Superhero storytime at Auntie's Bookstore"
Bring your kids and join us Saturday April 23rd at Aunties Bookstore - in downtown Spokane for a special superhero book reading at 11:00am.
