Garrett Wang, Chad Hardin, and Lee Wiley sign at Comics Plus on Saturday May 5, 2012 for Free Comic Book Day!
This year, Comics Plus memorializes its 25th year of being in business. Actor Garrett Wang, who played Harry Kim on the popular TV series Star Trek Voyager, has agreed to stop by and help us celebrate this momentous occasion. Come by and meet him in person, get an autograph, shake his hand or have your picture taken with him.

Chad Hardin, who has worked for both Marvel and DC, and Lee Wiley, whose art is featured in various independent books, will both be on hand signing their works and taking artist commissions.
