Wow, well this was unexpected. I knew that this wasn’t a bad idea – hold a comic book show, help out a former dealer who has fallen on hard times and terrible health in addition to losing her husband quite suddenly. But the feedback has been so strongly positive, I’m blown away.
I’m particularly excited about the support coming in from many comic book artists and writers in the area who will be at the show and bring signed copies of their work and/or artwork that we can auction off during the show. Comic auction master John Paul of NJComicBookShows.com will be auctioning off the work and many mini-collections of comics at noon on the 15th.
Artists and writers currently confirmed include:
- Paul Castigliani, Author of Archie Americana Series, Archie’s Weird Mysteries and much more
- Joey EndresWriter/Illustrator/Publisher
- Will Torres, Pop Culture Artist recently featured in the Official Walking Dead magazine #4 with a pin-up illustration
- Emilio Velez Jr., Creator, Illustrator and Writer of “The Dodgeball Teens”
- Graig Weich, Creator, Gekido, Ravedactyl
I’ll keep this list updated as it grows. In the meantime, please, if you’re in the area, stop by and support this fundraiser. Prices start at 35 cents per comic – and deals will be made!
