About

Welcome to the Detroit Fanfare Comic Con Kickstarter. This years Event will be Feb 6th-8th, 2015 at the Best Western Sterling Inn Convention center and Indoor Waterpark.

We started the planning for our first Detroit Fanfare Comic Con in the Fall of 2009. We wanted to do a convention that celebrated the old style hotel shows of the 60s and 70s and dedicated it to Shel Dorf who had just recently passed away. In 2010 we held the first ever Detroit Fanfare, which included Stan Lee's first appearance to Detroit in over 2 decades, the first ever Shel Dorf Awards for excellence in Comics and recognized the pioneers of Comic Cons for creating the events we know today.

For many years now the Promoters of the Detroit Fanfare Comic Con have put on an amazing show that preserves the rich heritage of Comic Book, Comic Creators and our impact on popular culture. We would like you and comic community to help sustain this event as an annual celebration of comics by supporting this Kickstarter Campaign.

Risks and challenges

Due to a last minute change in Hotel venue to the Best Western Sterling Inn- Conference Center and Indoor Water park, we haven't had the lead time for that we have had on every Detroit Fanfare Comic Con before. Through our hard work and having Kickstarter helping us handle the Ticket Sales, placement of vendors and creators we will be able to focus on guests, programming and marketing.
