About The Hero Initiative
The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero Initiative creates a financial safety net for yesterday’s creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It’s a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.
Since its inception, The Hero Initiative has had the good fortune to grant over $950,000 to the comics’ veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today. For more information, visit www.heroinitiative.org or call 626-676-6354.

Daria Tessler and Dylan Jones appear at Floating World Comics on Thursday July 7, 2016 from 6-9pm for the I Can’t Guess art show and release party!
In addition to their recently published books, Daria Tessler & Dylan Jones are making a collaborative art zine out of a vast assortment of bits and pieces.
Dylan also will have a new zine called I Can’t Guess made for the show, in addition to his new book The Longer You Stare the Fatter I’m Guilty, published last month by Gridlords. Dylan Jones has led a shoe mouth face floppy dagger dinger across an array of pages with his dextrous limbs’ pinwheel pineal dialogue. His new book will no doubt leave a zipper-length void in midmouth just as you grew wanting.
Daria Tessler’s most recent book, Three Magical Recipes from the Book of Secrets of Albertus Magnus, was published by Perfectly Acceptable Press. Dig out your parents’ glassen vessel and catch thyself a rearmouse – Daria Tessler illuminates three recipes from Alchemist-in-Chief Albertus Magnus’s Book of Secrets… One spell-binding four-color Risograph booklet.
Dylan Jones is an artist originally hailing from New Hampshire. Jones probably draws for more hours, makes more art and animates more objects than anyone alive or dead. It’s hard to imagine Jones sleeping ever, and his work makes one believe that he likely only loosely does something resembling sleeping, with eyes agape at all times. A meditative existence, so to speak. His work is methodical, pulling at all of the items in view, all of our mundane surroundings, and showing us how people can inhabit these the way Jones will inhabit your psyche. Jones’s work is the field of fantasies for persons who have seen too much, and it is the nightmares of the blissfully ignorant.
Born in Finland, Daria Tessler has been popping out of a jack-in-the-box at the cranking of dawn’s sunburned hand to the music of unknown worlds. A master silkscreener and master artist, Tessler has pulled as many visions she has screens. Her expert use of color will make you believe you are seeing hues that your eyes couldn’t previously register. Her linework and patterning is the most pleasant waft of wispy air, filled with pollen and pines, brushing over you. Each inhabitant of Tessler’s work wears on them a blissful quality of anxiety, a state of mind. You are doing yourself the greatest favor by stepping out of your body and into her body of work. Her book Music of Changes will be out soon from Latvian publisher kus! as part of their mini kus! line.

For over 20 years we offered an incredible assortment of Comic character collectibles while maintaining our auction presence.
Heritage has decided to continue the tradition!
As in past years, we will again extend clients the opportunity to offer comic art, comic books and collectibles on their behalf at our booths Items offered for sale at the show, sell at the convention. No waiting, no buyer’s premium, no angst, instant gratification!
A Flat 15% commission, no buyer’s premium. You can bring and pick up your consignment at the show.
Let us explain how this works, after over 30+ years of setting up at conventions, one thing has always been certain, collectors have always found their way to our booths to visit, view art, rest and invariably ask if we would offer their collectibles while at the show. We found this to be a win/win situation: great for our friends and great for us also. In recent years, we extended this opportunity to you, our clients, with great success and do so again. You do not have to attend the convention to participate! However, you do need to contact us to discuss consignments.
We already have commitments for great animation art, an outstanding array of Silver age and Golden age comic art by luminaries including: Frazetta, Kirby, Ditko, Infantino, etc. as well as what promises to be a great selection of strip art by McCay, Herriman, Foster, Raymond, etc
Please visit us at booths 4302, 4304, 4306 near Artists Alley. Stay tuned for more information on items we will be offering! We look forward to your participation.
