2017 Con Season: Why You Should Attend Saratoga Comic Con
Hey! You probably remember Saratoga Comic Con from our previous coverage & if you’re local, you’ve probably seen posters everywhere and at least heard some talk about it. Coty Clark and I are guests at the upcoming spring convention along with loads of other great cosplayers, artists, actors and writers. As if we haven’t given you enough reason to come (YOU GET TO SEE US!!!) we got Sam Chase himself to give us his reasons. Here they are! Enjoy reading them, and see you there May 6th & 7th!! ❤ – Jennard
1. Why to come to Saratoga Comic Con? Being Saratoga’s Comic Con presented by Chase Con, the show had to strive to be the best only for it’s local fans and abroad. So that is why each show is different. New guest stars, guest artists, always looking for new vendors and independent artists. Finding out what the fans want making their dreams a reality is what we specialize in business with.
2. Guest Artists & Writers. Marvel & DC movies that are so popular nowadays wouldn’t have happened without the artists and writers we bring into our convention. We have a tendency to bring in a lot of artists and writers that have never been to the area or any of the cons in the area for that matter. We go out of our way for the fans, so you talk and have the opportunity to buy their original artwork that has created the worlds you now love!
3. Guest Stars Coming. Many guest stars we bring in you can’t meet without traveling great distances to try to catch them at a show, if they’re even doing a show.

Hey, it’s Jen again. As you can see, he gave us a ton of reasons, but I also wanted to throw in one more of my own – the schedule is pretty rad. You can view the whole weekend’s schedule here, but i’m hosting a Sailor Moon Meet Up on Saturday, and the whole Invisible Cat Patrol squad is hosting Cosplay Karaoke. Schedule times are on the site and Facebook, and you’re gonna want to get in on this. In addition, Saratoga is a pretty fun city to be in overnight, and i’ll be there, let’s hang out!! See you there, and thanks Sam for sending us all this great info!!
