However, due to slow vendor sales the con was cancelled. After that, the comic books were kept in storage for about a decade before resurfacing again. The intent was to give the comics to the top tier ticket buyers in their ticket package. There were gold stickers made that were going to be applied on the back cover above the numbering that showed the Fear Fest Horror Con name along with the promotion company's name on it; however, since the con was cancelled, the stickers were never affixed and are now long gone.
