Free Comic Book Day! May 2nd

I will be appearing at Time Warp Comics the Saturday for Free Comic Book Day. I'll have copies of Byron as well as Drunkard & Horror prints and some original art. Yes, I will be a good drawing monkey for a couple hours. Please come by to offer me applause, money, or booze. It all helps.

Here are the details:

For Immediate Release

Free Comic Book Day Allows Fans to Beat the Recession And Enjoy New Titles
Local Artists Work Will Be Auctioned Off To Benefit CU’s Literature Department At the Event

Boulder, CO- Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. The day provides an excellent opportunity for fans to beat the recession and experience new comic book titles at no cost.

Mainstay Boulder comic book shop, Time Warp Comics and Cards will be participating in the giveaway event and a charity benefit auction.

Local comic book creators, Nick Runge (IDW Terminator:Salvation, the Badger), Daniel Crosier(Bartholomew of the Scissors), Scorpio Steele (Marvel Comics), John Porcellino (King-Cat), Kevin Gentilcore (Ray Harryhaussen’s Back to Mysterious Island), Karl Christian Krumpholz (Byron), Lee Oaks (Thunder Monkey), Noah Van Sciver (Westword, Blammo), and Leila Del Luca will take part in live, large-scaled illustrations during the day. Their work will be auctioned off to fans, and art enthusiasts, to benefit unique literature events and fund speaking engagements for both CU and the community.

Crosier, nationally known for the wood-burned comic book series, Bartholomew of the Scissors, helped organize the event. “Free comic book day is the perfect tie-in for the live drawing auction, states Crosier. I’m really excited about the local artist that will be participating, meeting comic book enthusiasts, and helping out CU and community related programs. I want to thank everyone involved in the comic book community for their help pulling this amazing event together.”
