Press Release:

LOS ANGELES (October 20, 2010) — Fans of the acclaimed FOX television show FRINGE, which airs Thursdays from 9:00–10:00 p.m. ET/PT, are invited to take a trip to the alternate universe at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood on Sunday, October 24, from 5–9 p.m.

Series star John Noble and executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman will be on hand to meet fans and auction off five special items from the series — five alternate-universe versions of classic comic book covers created by DC Comics artists that appeared on-screen in a key scene in the season two finale episode — to benefit Autism Speaks.

In addition, Meltdown will display props and artifacts from the series at Hollywood’s iconic comic book store, located at 7522 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, between Fairfax and La Brea. Some props include Newton’s laser scalpel (episode 210), an alternate universe inhaler (episode 303), Nixon coin (episode 221) and Martin Luther King $20 bill (episode 221).

The event will be an opportunity to collect autographs with Noble, Pinkner, Wyman and other writers from the show, all culminating in an auction of the amazing alternate universe comic books.

Meltdown Comics Event Director SAX Carr said, “Autism hits close to home in many families and it is really a remarkable thing when such a popular show can take time to raise money for such an important cause. We expect a large crowd, and are grateful to everyone who helped make this happen.”
