Legendary comic book creator and Hero Initiative spokesperson Denny O’Neil is coming to The Dragon on May 21st!
The purpose of this special event is to raise money for the Hero Initiative, which provides a financial safety net for yesterdays’ creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work.
Starting at 2:00 PM, Denny will participate in an in-store signing event, with special guest Ty Templeton. CGC signature series is an option for this event. Autograph fee of $20 for CGC purposes. $10 for all other signatures, and Ty will be sketching. We will have lots of stories that Denny worked on available, and anything bought from The Dragon that day we will provide 10% to Hero Initiative.
In the evening we really kick it up a notch! We will be hosting a party with Denny! Denny will be interviewed by Ty about his long history in comics, and afterwards we will have a meet & greet with the pros. Limited capacity for this event! Tickets will be available at The Dragon.
Seriously, you need to be here and help us raise money for a hugely important cause.
