Eight days away!

Anyone who shops at my store here in fab Las Vegas, Alternate Reality Comics (one block from UNLV), and or who has been reading my blog for the past couple of months already knows that I'm having a huge signing next Saturday, July 11th, from 11-2pm, with J.H. Williams III and Greg Rucka, the artist and writer of the new excellent Batwoman being featured in Detective Comics. JH Williams and Greg Rucka will gladly sign anything that you bring that they've worked on over the years, but I'm going to limit items to be signed to five items per creator and if time and people flow permits, we'll allow people who have more books they'd like signed to form another line.

As if just having / seeing J.H. Williams and Greg Rucka in person upon the debut of their great new (I say this a lot, but it bears repeating) Batwoman series wasn't enough excitement, J.H. generously created the exclusive artwork featured here (click on image to see this art in its larger glory), which will be on sale as an 11 x 17 heavy stock print on the day of the signing. All of the proceeds from the sale of this print are being donated to Hero Initiative, a non-profit organization that helps comic creators in need http://www.heroinitiative.org/. The price of this print is so low that I'd rather not say what it is here on my blog, because we (Derrick of Comic Oasis and myself) wanted to have an affordable commemorative piece available for people that come to the signings, which at the end of the day when all the prints are sold will still add up to a good sized donation for Hero Initiative. Advance orders are not being taken for this print because we want this to be something people purchase at the signings (J.H. Williams and Greg Rucka will be at Comic Oasis, also here in Las Vegas, from 4-7pm on the same day), but we are producing a very healthy amount because we are expecting a very robust turnout.

Stay tuned to Ich Liebe Comics! (this blog, of course) towards the middle of next week as I'll have a couple of additional surprises to announce for the signing next Saturday!
