    Article on the DenverPost website

    About Stan Lee autograph tickets selling out in minute. Only 300 were available (priced between $175 and 275). The website showed 20,000 people attempting to purchase tickets.

    Stan and Gill should forget about the concerts and should just tour around selling Stan Lee autograph tickets. They could then donate the money to a military charity.

    • So what are the numbers? How much do the concerts cost? How much revenue do they expect to receive? No good company does anything unless they expect to make a profit whether its for a good cause, or not. Looks like here everyone (meaning Stan and Gil) will make a profit.

      • Which numbers do you want?

        For the Denver comic con 20,000 people tried to buy 300 tickets to meet Stan. That's between $50k and $80k. POW! didn't book that kind of revenue in previous years (Stan does several signings a year). I'm guessing that Stan and Gill split a percentage of that money and none of it reaches POW!. I'm also guessing that POW! pays for Stan to go to these comic cons to sign autographs. POW! probably pays for all the POW! employees to go.

        At the only concert so far, only 300 tickets were sold (I think tickets ran between $20 and $80). The proceeds went to charity. It doesn't look like POW! makes anything from the concerts. POW! would get what little publicity a 300 member audience concert generates and would gets a tax write-off, but that is only useful when the company makes money.
