ZomBcon meets it fate at the hands of zombie-killers?

Well, the small group of fans who've donated in the hopes of keeping Seattle ZomBcon alive are likely to be disappointed. With 52 hours left, the organizers are well short of their goals and no hope in sight. I've tried to get the word out, but I suppose my personal network of friends only goes so far.

ZomBcon organizer Ryan Reiter has gone personally in debt trying to keep this thing going, yet things don't look promising for the awesome con that brought awesome celebs like Bruce Campbell, George Romero, Malcolm McDowell, Sean Patrick Flanery, Norman Reedus, Sid Haig and Sam Trammell.

The saddest thing about this situation is that I'm sitting here thinking about all the awesome friends I've made at the past two ZomBcons. I'm going to miss the excitement of meeting new people with similar interests. I'm also going to miss having a reason for my friends to travel to Seattle. Heck, I'm going to miss having an excuse to spend a weekend in Seattle.

While I haven't completely given up hope, it just doesn't look good. If you are into zombies or horror or cons or anything of the sort, please check this out. You can help save ZomBcon by donating here. I can't offer any bribery or anything, but check out these awesome photos from ZomBcons past and just imagine how much fun Bruce Campbell doing an Evil Dead wedding must have been!
