Sometimes I rue the day I left California for the vast wastelands of Western Kansas… Mainly because it means I can’t drive up to Collector’s Paradise in Winnetka, California to participate in the Hero Initiative Benefit Party during Free Comic Book Day 2009.  Mark Waid, Editor-in-Chief of Boom! Studios, Marc Guggenheim (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, GREEN LANTERN movie), Jim Mahfood (GRRL SCOUTS, CLERKS), David Wohl (co-creator of WITCHBLADE, DARKNESS) Mike Kunkel (HEROBEAR AND KID), are among some of the guests scheduled to appear.

Check out this breakdown of the day’s events!

Signings: Featured guests will be on site from 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM. Books will be available for purchase to sign, including the TRIBUTE TO MIKE WIERINGO HERO INITIATIVE EXCLUSIVE – for FREE with your Ralph’s card and registering with HERO or you can also bring your books from home to have our guests sign as well!
