Hey, you kids like comics, right? And the people who make them? And you like to support causes that make life better here in Southern Nevada, yeah? Well, then, I expect to see you at Alternate Reality Comics (4110 S. Maryland Parkway #8) this Saturday, Feb. 25, from noon to 3 p.m., because I’m assembling the crew behind Tales from Fremont Street for a special signing and art exhibition kick-off, and to boot, we’re going to ask for donations to one of our favorite charities, the SafeNest shelter for abused women and children.
Joining me at the signing table will be cover artist Jska Priebe, interior contributors Deryl Skelton, Ed Hawkins and F Andrew Taylor, and my collaborator in the book, Warren Wucinich. We’ll have copies of both Tales from Fremont Street and Tales from the Boneyard, whose proceeds benefit the Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival. As well, we’re kicking off the month-long exhibition of selected original art from Fremont Street, which will be showing inside Alternate Reality’s “Artist Spotlight” space (following its debut at the Barrick Museum last fall).
In addition, we’re asking guests to bring donations for SafeNest, based on their current Wish List. Alternate Reality owner Ralph Mathieu will also be donating a portion of the day’s back issue sales and proceeds from raffle tickets sold to the shelter.
Need more incentive beyond great comics, awesome people, raffle prizes, amazing art and worthy causes? How about free refreshments? OK, done! Now you have no excuses. Hope to see you there with donations in hand when you walk in, and comics when you walk out.
