Manhattan Beach’s The Comic Bug Hosts Hero Initiative Membership Party
Tim Sale appears as special guest
Acclaimed artist Tim Sale (Superman For all Seasons, Spider-Man: Blue ) will be at partying with comic fans and the Hero Initiative at Hero’s first-ever in-store membership party! The party takes place at The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach, California, Friday, November 6th from 7pm to 10pm.
Partygoers who pay a mere $25 will get:
• 2010 Hero Initiative bronze membership, a $29 value
• A Tim Sale print made specially for the event
• 50% off EVERYTHING in the store
• Complimentary food and drink
All monies raised at the evening’s festivities will benefit Hero Initiative, the charity that helps comic book creators in medical or financial need.
Sale’s visit to The Comic Bug will be his first. “I’m really looking forward to finally getting to visit The Comic Bug, a comic book store that I have heard such great things about for years now,” he said. “And I am always happy to work for Hero Initiative’s great people and great cause, working hard to take care of comic creators who can’t take care of themselves. Now where are my pencils?!”
Tim Sale will be signing autographs for everyone, and doing sketches for the first 10 people only who upgrade to become Hero Initiative Silver members at $99. Tim usually charges $150 for sketches at conventions, so this is a smoking deal!
“We’ve hosted several events in conjunction with The Hero Initiative before and November’s event is one of the more ambitious and certainly most exciting,” said The Comic Bug’s Mike Wellman. “It’s nice to know that the good times we’ll be having are going to have a direct, beneficial effect on comic creators that desperately need help. We’re honored that Tim Sale is donating time from his hectic schedule to share his immense talent with us all!”
