Thanks, Asheville — from us at Fanaticon

We hope you'll allow us this opportunity and forum to thank the people of Asheville and our neighboring communities for supporting FANATICON (May 15). Thanks to them, we welcomed over 3,500 attendees to our first-time event. 

We were somewhat anxious about introducing a convention of this kind to the area, but any fears we had were quickly dispelled by the enthusiasm, creativity and encouragement of the Asheville community.

We're pleased to report that many of our out-of-town guests and vendors made a point of telling us how friendly and welcoming Asheville was to them. It's very gratifying to know that they'll be returning home with such positive things to say about our city and its people.

So, thank you again to the community for making our comic book convention so much fun, and for proving once again Asheville's great capacity to appreciate and support art and diversity of all kinds.

— Chance Whitmire and Michael McMurtrey
