The Utopian TP release party & Shade Tree benefit!

Alternate Reality Comics (located at 4110 S. Maryland Pkwy. #8, next to Buffalo Exchange at the Maryland & Flamingo intersection, of course) is happy to announce that Saturday, January 22nd from 12-3pm, I'll be hosting Pj Perez' launch party for the trade paperback collection of The Utopian! We are tying in this fun time with a benefit for Shade Tree, a non profit local organization that helps homeless and abused women and children. For a list of items that Shade Tree is in need of in addition to donations, click here: http://www.theshadetree.org/wishlist.shtml. Additionally I'll have the biggest back issue sale I've ever had at Alternate Reality Comics and ALL of the proceeds from that sale will be donated to Shade Tree!

For readers of Ich Liebe Comics! that haven't read the online version of The Utopian or the single issues yet, Pj put together a REALLY handsome collected version of his comic about a high school senior who takes it upon himself to fight the injustices he sees around him, for a mere $19.99 for 120 full color pages, with additional pages annotating every page of the story! So even if you have the single issues and or have read the online version, I think when people see the trade paperback version of The Utopian, they'll want to get this edition and then they can gift the single issues! So please enter Saturday, January 22nd from 12-3pm into your calendars, check out the link above to see what Shade Tree does for this community, and come on by for what's gonna be a fun time, with a couple of great local creative forces by the names of Pj Perez and Hernan Valencia (the collected edition cover artist)! There'll also be sketches and refreshments on hand!
