Time to mark your calendars for what's going to be a fun time at Alternate Reality Comics that could very well redefine what a fun time is! Sunday, February 20th from 12-4pm, I'll be hosting several artists from Arizona, California, and Las Vegas!
Here's the line up: Eric Basaldua (artist on comics from Top Cow and Zenescope), Rob Duenas (Penny For Your Soul), Alfred Trujillo (Zenescope artist), local artists Jean Arrow, Andy Bohn, April Grady Reyna, Tosh Delaney, Shelby Robertson, Brieanna Brock (Zenescope cosplayer and contributor on the website www.comicbooked.com), Victoria Page (contributor on www.comicbooked.com and cosplayer), and Michael Duran (who cosplays as Superman on the Las Vegas Strip)! It's a good thing I moved my store to a bigger space!
This event is your chance to get some uber cool art sketches from some amazing artists, purchase a raffle ticket for your chance to win a piece of art from these artists, and there'll be additional raffle prizes from Alternate Reality Comics, and the much beloved .25 cent back issue sale! All proceeds from the back issue sale and all raffle tickets purchased will be donated to the Nevada Partnership For Homeless Youth (Safe Place), a local charity that assists teens who have become homeless and or are having difficulty in their lives.
This event is the brainchild of Brieanna Brock, who recently moved from Arizona to Vegas. Brieanna is bringing her skills in helping out at Arizona conventions and is looking to make Vegas an even more exiting place for comic book fans than it already is. Not only is this lineup of artists going to be at Alternate Reality Comics on Sunday, Feb. 20th (from 12-4pm), but they'll be at my buddy Jay's, Maximum Comics in Henderson (just down from the Sunset Station) on Saturday, Feb. 19th (12-4pm), and to continue my talking about this whole event in a backwards fashion, they'll be at Buffalo Wild Wings (Craig and Commerce) for a Drink and Draw on Friday, Feb. 18th from 9pm until the alcohol runs out!
So you get not one, not two, but three chances to visit with young up and coming artists, cosplay people, and other lads and lasses who love comic book art and comic book fandom! I hope that everyone who is reading this Ich Liebe Comics! event entry will come to either the Friday Feb.18th night hangout, the Saturday Feb. 19th signing at Maximum Comics, the Sunday Feb. 20th signing at Alternate Reality Comics (my store's first Sunday event!), or better yet - all three meet ups and show Brieanna and these visiting artists that Las Vegas comic fans know how to have a fun time! Tell everyone you know about this Presidents Day weekend Arizona Comic Book Artists Event here in Vegas! Those of you who haven't heard of the Justice League of Las Vegas can ask Brieanna what it is about and how you can be a part of it!
