Alternate Reality Comics Saturday party & 3 Square benefit

As many of you already know, this Saturday, November 13th, from 11am-9pm, I'm going to have the Alternate Reality Comics new location / thank you to returning customers / welcome to new customers / Three Square Food Bank benefit. This morning I picked up the Three Square Food Bank barrel, so it's here at the store ready for people to bring in nonperishable food items to benefit people in need in our community, especially as we get into the holiday season. I'm having hourly raffles from 11am-9m, anyone who comes for the celebration will get a raffle ticket and by bringing nonperishable food items you'll receive an additional raffle ticket. The barrel is ready to be filled, so you don't have to wait until Saturday to bring donations and if you come by every day with food items, you'll receive an additional raffle ticket for that day and you don't have to be present to win.
The fantastic Firestorm colored pencil original art (11 x 17) here in this photo, was created by Brightest Day artist, Dave Beaty, who along with his artist friend, Scott Clark (another one of the fantastic Brightest Day artists), will be at the celebration from 12pm-3pm. Dave Beaty is generously donating this piece of art as one of the big raffle prizes that could be won on Saturday! Uber artist and uber nice guy, Jae Lee (Dark Tower, Hellshock, Inhumans, and Sentry) will also be at the Saturday store party from 12pm-1pm, so I hope everyone plans their Saturday carefully (grin)!


Some of the other raffle prizes that people can win are: the huge Galactus talking action figure with the San Diego comic convention packaging, the new huge Superman / Ali hardcover by Neal Adams, gift certificates, graded CGC variant comics, statues, Scott Pilgrim DVDs, assorted hardcover graphic novels, and yes, there will be more (click on photo here to better see some of the items)! There'll also be free food and a HUGE sale, so I hope to see a lot of my Alternate Reality Comics friends this Saturday. And I hope everyone brings nonperishable food items for the Three Square Food Bank benefit, because that way everyone wins!
