FAIRFAX COMIC CON

We're proud to announce Fairfax Comic Con is coming to the Dulles Expo Center Aug 25-26, 2018.

Planning has been going on behind the scenes for a quite a while but we wanted to have a few great guests locked in before we finally announced everything to the world.

When we announced on Facebook the numbers shot up crazy fast. As of this writing it's a little over 12,000 fans interested. We want to put on a really good show so we're here on Kickstarter to enlist your help.

We're very excited for you to take a look at our plans for the show and for you to see our cool rewards. We've got a little something for everyone.

The more you pledge, the bigger we can make the show while still keeping the passes at a reasonable price. We'll use your pledges to cover all the behind the scenes thing like more space and marketing but also to add more guests to an already great first year lineup:

Fairfax Comic Con Year One Special Guests

Greg Grunberg (Star Wars, Heroes, Alias, Lost, and more)
John Cassaday (Star Wars, Astonishing X-Men, Captain America, Planetary)
Jim Cheung (Infinity, Avengers, Young Avengers, Scion, Illuminati, Fantastic Four)
Robert Vendetti (Green Lantern, Damage)
Brockton McKinney
Pop Mhan
Nicky Soh
Tim Shinn
Carolyn Belefski
Patrick Michael Strange and more to be added

SUPER TERRIFIC FAN REWARDS
We want to give the fans things they can cherish forever and always be able to brag and say they were here from day one. So we've got Badges, Passes, Shirts, Comics, Prints, and some very cool rewards just waiting to be unlocked.

EXHIBITOR REWARDS
We're offering artist alley tables and vendor booths at a lower cost as a thanks for getting involved and taking a chance on the show. After the Kickstarter the prices for exhibitor space will go up so this is a great way to support the show and save yourself some money as well.

WHO ARE WE?
Mike Federali is the founder of Tidewater Comicon, Hampton Comicon, and recently helped start Savannah Comic Con. Along with a small army of dedicated volunteers they make each show a fun event for all.

STRETCH GOALS
Don't forget we have two more guests we can add if we hit our goals
TOP SECRET GUEST #1 unlocked if we hit 20,000
TOP SECRET GUEST #2 unlocked if we hit 25,000
TOP SECRET REWARD #3 unlocked if we hit 30,000 and more to be named as we get closer to the show!

UNLOCKED GUEST #1 JOHNNY YONG BOSCH

 UNLOCKED GUEST #2 GREG CIPES

Risks and challenges

There is always the risk that due to filming commitments, illness, etc. a Special Guest may have to cancel but we've got the highest hopes that everything will go well. And should someone have to cancel for any reason we will make our best effort to bring someone else to the show of equal quality.
