Seriously, there should be a template for this by now.
Garab Shamus bought the show from local convention organiser… balh blah blah… who will remain with the show…blah blah… free to run one day conventions in the same spot at other times of the year… blah…everyone happy.
Seriously, right now, you mant to make a small amount of money? Run a comic convention in a place where there isn't a Wizard Comic Con. And wait for Gareb to get in touch.
