On Saturday, April 17, Neil Gaiman will be giving his only reading in 2010 to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund at the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2)! To commemorate this extraordinary event, Tony Harris, the award-winning artist of STARMAN, EX MACHINA, and WAR HEROES has illustrated an all-new print based on the unpublished poem “In Relig Oran,” which Gaiman will premiere for the first time at “An Evening With Neil Gaiman!” While the text of the poem is top secret, a sneak peek of the art for this gorgeous 11″ x 20″ full color print is available here! Tony Harris will also be appearing at C2E2 in support of the CBLDF, appearing at the Fund’s booth to sign copies of “In Relig Oran” and his graphic novels.
The last time Neil Gaiman performed theatrical readings was ten years ago on the “Last Angel Tour.” On that tour, he crisscrossed the country, giving sold-out readings of stories and poems, both new material and beloved tales, in order to draw attention to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. That was ten years ago. In those ten years, Mr. Gaiman’s published such books as American Gods, Coraline, and The Graveyard Book. He’s made movies and operas. He even started keeping a blog. A generation has grown up who have not seen an evening with Neil Gaiman — until now.
For One Night Only. Neil Gaiman. Only for the CBLDF, and only at C2E2!
Pre-sale tickets for An Evening With Neil Gaiman are still available until MONDAY, APRIL 12 for as low as $15 for C2E2 badge holders, but don’t delay — after Monday tickets are only available onsite and prices will be going up! Tickets are available at: http://c2e2.com/en/Events/Neil-Gaiman/
C2E2 ANNOUNCES “AN EVENING WITH NEIL GAIMAN”
Celebrated Author and Industry Icon to Appear on Behalf of Comic Book Legal Defense Fund at Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo
New York, NY, March 5, 2010: Neil Gaiman, the award winning author of novels, film, and comics including the epoch changing graphic novel series The Sandman will take the stage for a benefit appearance on behalf of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund at Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2). An “Evening with Neil Gaiman”, a paid ticketed event, will happen on Saturday night, April 17, with 100% of the proceeds going to benefit the First Amendment legal work of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
The last time Gaiman performed theatrical readings was ten years ago when he did the “Last Angel Tour.” On that tour, he criss-crossed the country doing sold-out evenings reading stories and poems, new material and beloved tales in order to draw attention to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. The “Last Angel Tour” was meant to have been the last ever such tour, and it produced the long-since sold out LIVE AT THE ALADDIN film. Even the posters from that tour now sell for hundreds of dollars.
That was ten years ago. A generation has grown up who have not seen an evening with Neil Gaiman. In these ten years he’s published such books as American Gods, Coraline and The Graveyard Book. He’s made movies and operas. He even started keeping a blog.
“Neil Gaiman is an enormous personality and it is a genuine privilege to have him perform at the inaugural C2E2 to bring attention to the important work that is carried out by the CBLDF,” states Lance Fensterman, Group Vice President for the Reed Pop Culture Group and Show Manager for C2E2.
“The Reed Pop Culture Group’s commitment to the CBLDF is tremendous, and we’re honored to work with them to create this unforgettable evening of storytelling to raise funds for the CBLDF’s important work,” says Charles Brownstein, the CBLDF’s Executive Director.
An “Evening with Neil Gaiman” will be Mr. Gaiman’s only public appearance at C2E2. Tickets for the event will be available at www.C2E2.com beginning Monday, March 8th at 12pm Central Time. You do not need a ticket to C2E2 to attend. Tickets for the general public start at $30 and C2E2 VIP Ticket Holders can attend for as low as $12. Ticket prices will increase at the door.
