Golden Apple 30th Anniversary!

Golden Apple, Hollywood’s Comic Shop to the stars, held their 30th anniversary this past Saturday, December 12. Even with the rain, fans showed up in full force as several publishing companies, such as Archaia, Aspen, Top Cow, and Boom Studios, helped celebrate the anniversary with limited edition comics and prints exclusive to the event, as well as huge sales for comics. In addition, Hero Initiative got Whilce Portacio, Image Comics co-founder, to show up and sketch for the fans for donations. Everyone had a great time, and afterwards, a party was held for all the contributors to this great event. Without further ado, onto the photos of the event!
