Webcomics Organize Drive to "Save ConnectiCon."

Last minute changes imposed on the convention by "a series of misunderstandings" have caused the organizers of ConnectiCon to incur over $30,000 of personal debt.

A group of webcomics have organized a drive to "Save ConnectiCon." Webcomics behind the project include Apple Geeks, Mac Hall, VG Cats and more.

Currently they are accepting donations via Paypal and have raised over $14,000 in under 3 days.

According to Ananth Panagariya at Applegeeks, some webcomics will also be putting original art on auction to save the event.

The Save ConnectiCon website has a members only section for individuals that donate $5 or more. The members only section includes some exclusive artwork / wallpapers and other content from the webcomics involved.

ConnectiCon is a multi-genre convention dedicated to anime, gaming, web-comics, science fiction, fantasy and more. While the event is best known for its very strong showing of web-comic artists, numerous individuals from the anime industry were present as guests, including Tiffany Grant, Steve Bennett and Chris Patton.
