Early yesterday afternooon I hosted the first half of the J.H. Williams III and Greg Rucka Batwoman signing (the second half was at my friend, Derrick's store, Comic Oasis, across town later in the afternoon). The entire signing was a rousing success! From left to right in this photo: J.H. (or Jim, the artist), Greg (the writer), Wendy (Jim's wife), and me, all ready to let in the line of people who showed up early.
People first lined up to purchase the limited edition Batwoman print that J.H. did for the signing, of which all the sale proceeds are being donated to Hero Initiative, a nonprofit organization that helps comic creators in need. I almost sold out of all of the prints yesterday,, but I do have a few left (signed and numbered) here at the store, but at only ten dollars I expect they'll be gone by the end of the week. Pictured here, in this photo in the forefront, in the white t-shirt, is Jason, who bought Batwoman print number 1! Thanks to everyone who bought prints (and to those who will be buying the remaining ones), I'll be sending off a nice sized check to Hero Initiative tomorrow!
Right to left; Tyler (wearing the cap) and Rob (in glasses). Tyler purchased some J.H. Williams III art and having talked to him about some of the art he's purchased in the past couple of years, J.H's art is going to be in good company. Rob helped a great deal the day of the signing (and the days before) which really made everything run very smoothly.
The guy in the brown shirt at the far left in this photo is Dave an old friend of mine, who drove in from Bakersfield with his son, Spenser (busy with is Gameboy, at Dave's left). Glad you made it Dave!
Kate, with our friends Jennifer (in center) and Brandi (in the blue top). Kate was the official Batwoman cake server. She was trying to calm down Brandi who's the biggest Batwoman fan in the world - I jest, actually Brandi was there with her husband Dr. Todd, who's also a good friend of ours.
Part two of the signing will follow either later today or early tomorrow.
