Platinum Studios is a silver sponsor for this year’s Free Comic Book Day being held in comic shops and books stores across the country. The company is taking it a step further by helping to get comics in the hands of military personel around the world.
Working with Operation Troop Aid, the companies will send 27,000 comics and graphic novels to troops stationed in Iraq.
In addition to sending comics around the world, Platinum Studios will be distributing a Hero By Night mini-issue, and a sneak peek of Gunplay. DJ Coffman, creator of Hero By Night, and Jorge Vega, creator of Gunplay will also make appearances to sign their issues. Coffman will appear at Larry’s Comics in Lowell, MA from 5:00 to 9:00 PM, while Vega and artist Dominic Vivona will sign at Jetpack Comics in Rochester, NH from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Hey, Stephen, thanks for the shout out. We’re pretty excited about our stories being read by folks who really need a diversion from reality, ya know? Proud to be a part of Platinum’s efforts to reach out to our service men and women.
