Will You Help A Seventeen Year Old Put On A Chicago Comic Con?

His name is Everett Watford. He is seventeen years old. He is putting on a comic convention in Chicago. He says;

My goal is to showcase independent comic book creators and people trying to break into the business primarily from Chicago.  I plan to have artists booths to showcase their wares and a pre-party to have an opportunity to have a one on one with the artists.  Funds will be used to pay for the venue, the insurance and promotional materials for the con such as posters and flyers.  Monies obtained beyond the goal will be used to fly in hot new comic talent. I have secured a venue, started the insurance process, started booking artists and have begun to promote my con by placing flyers in local comic book shops.  I am working alone.

Yup, he’s on Kickstarter. So… are you in?
