HOW YOU’RE HELPING 

Worldbuilders is a charity founded by author Pat Rothfuss in order to use the collective power of readers, fellow authors and book lovers to make the world a better place. We raise money for other charities who we believe do the best work in their field: Heifer InternationalMercy Corps, and First Book. These charities’ missions and values are exactly what we have in mind when we think, “Where can this money do the most good?”

Heifer plays the long game, bringing education, materials, and a passing-the-gift philosophy that ensures generations of self-sufficiency down the road. Mercy Corps jumps into action as crises arise, bringing food, clothing, shelter, and education to people caught in dire situations like natural disasters and war. First Book promotes literacy around the world by providing books for educators and administrators, bringing much-needed educational materials to disadvantaged youth.

We’re excited for the opportunity to have fans play games with some of their favorite celebrities all while generating money for these three charities who make sure the money we raise gets to where it’s needed most, and where it will do some real, long-term good.

OR – Paklis #1 Release Party

Artist Dustin Weaver appears at Floating World Comics on Wednesday May 31, 2017 from 5:00 -7:00 PM for the PAKLIS #1 release party and signing.

Image Comics is pleased to introduce PAKLIS—a new anthology series from writer/artist Dustin Weaver—where the characters in three mind-bending stories find themselves faced with dark, existential questions that will haunt readers.

Dustin began his career in comics as an intern at WildStorm Studios in 2003, where he was held to an unreasonable standard by his idol. Since then, he’s illustrated the NY Times bestselling novel The Tenth Circle, had a fruitful relationship with Dark Horse Comics where he made significant contributions to the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic series, and worked for several years exclusively at Marvel where, most notably, he co-created the acclaimed series S.H.I.E.L.D: Architects of Forever with writer Jonathan Hickman. Dustin now dedicates himself to his own Image series, PAKLIS.

CA – Dan Parsons Signing

Artist DAN PARSONS signs at Knowhere Games and Comics on Thursday, March 30th at 5:00 PM.

Dan Parsons is perhaps known best for his work on Star Wars, Game of Thrones, and Avatar: The Last Airbender. He was the inker on countless classic Star Wars tales like Star Wars, Star Wars: Republic, Star Wars: Legacy, Star Wars: Dawn of the Jedi, Star Wars: Clone Wars, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars: Rebel Heist, and more!

If you own Game of Thrones on Blu-ray or DVD you’ve also likely seen his artwork as part of the Histories of Westeros, so don’t forget to bring your copy of Season1 to get it signed!

Dan also provided the artwork for Avatar Legacy, the amazing autobiography of Avatar Aang that continues the tale of his reign as Avatar after the Last Airbender cartoon series ended.

If you’re a fan of DC’s Hawkman, Dick Grayson, or Barbara Gordon then you’ll hopefully have picked up DC’s Convergence: Nightwing & Oracle which featured the marriage of two iconic DC characters as inked by Dan!

But that isn’t all Dan has done in the way of art, having pencilled, written, and worked on Harpy, Savage Planet, Sexy Angel, Cthulhu Tales, Strange Kisses, Razor, First Wave, and Empire of the Wolf!
