NE – The FCBD Menace

RAY PARK of Star Wars, G.I. Joe, X-Men and Heroes fame will be our guest of honor for FCBD! The calls have already started and everyone (including us) seems really pumped! We have pricing info on autographs. $30 will get you the John Hancock of Mr. Ray Park! A nice thing that Mr. Park has agreed to is he will take photos with customers at no extra charge as long as an autograph is purchased. $30 gets your item signed or you can buy one of Mr. Park’s fantastic photos. We spoke with Mr. Park this weekend at C2E2 and he is excited about meeting his fans in Omaha!

CYNTHIA MARTIN, Star Wars artist for the Marvel series has agreed (after much pleading) to be our special comic book guest! She is one of the nicest people in the comic business and does fantastic sketches! Cynthia has created a fantastic Darth Maul sketch available at Krypton on FCBD!

ANOTHER GREAT ARTIST SIGNS AT FCBD:
