    Do other comic pro's charge an appearance fee?

    I know some charge speaking fee's for special events (I remember when Neil Gaiman charged a Public Library 45,000.00) but do they charge Conventions as well?

    I know Jim Lee does, and it's a considerable one. At least for cons. Don't know about store appearances. And Ethan does, too, at the ones where he sketches for free, at least.

    Isn't that what the admission price is supposed to cover?
    depends on the show.
    how many extra people would you have to walk in to make up that extra 25 grand?

    but most shows just can't pony out an extra 25 grand. thats alot of fucking money.

    He charges the promoters. The fans get the free sketches. At other shows he does paid commission sketches.

    834 one day tickets at 30.00 apiece. I agree, that's a alot of fucking money to shell out for one guy.

    Had no idea Stan Lee hits his fans up for that much money.

    Stan Lee was at a con in Detroit last weekend. The tickets were so cheap ($10 for adults and $5 for kids) that I was tempted to go, but then I saw they were charging $50 PER ITEM for Stan's signature, and $75 for a photo with Stan. So I passed.

    Just tag along with Pat Zircher next time he meets up with him (although be prepared to be hit on by Stan the Man).

    If that's what the market will bare, good for him.
