*UPDATE* A fundraiser website has been set up to assist Oliver Nome, details at the link!
DC/Aspen artist Oliver Nome (Flashpoint: Kid Flash, Kiani, DCU Online) needs to undergo surgery to remove a golf ball-sized tumor in his brain. As a freelancer, he has no health insurance and this procedure is sure to be quite expensive. For that reason his art rep and friend, Michael Alexandropoulos, and friend Ale Garza are starting a fundraiser for Oliver. Any artist that would like to donate a piece of art, a print, or even a signed comic may contact Mike (Mga1wars@aol.com) or Bob Shaw of Comic Art House (Bob@comicarthouse.com) for details.
Any fans that would like to contribute either art or a monetary contribution, may also contact Mike or Bob. Get well soon, Oliver!
Check out Oliver’s Comic Art Fans and DeviantArt galleries for a sample of his work or if you wish to purchase a piece.
Collector’s Paradise Pasadena is very excited to help Aspen Comics launch their HIT LIST Crossover Event, which stems from David Wohl’s sequel to the critically acclaimed and awesome Executive Assistant Iris series. Iris vol 2 starts the ball rolling and mini-series for Violet, Lotus & Orchid join the event for their 3 issue runs. Illustrated by an array of Aspen’s awesome artists, including Oliver Nome, with some stunning covers by Joe Benitez (Lady Mechanika), HIT LIST is a hard-hitting, super-sexy, sword-wielding event that you just have to check out.
This is your only chance to meet all 4 of the writers (David Wohl, Scott Lobdell, Vince Hernandez and Marc Andreyko) plus artists Joe Benitez and Oliver Nome, pick up all 4 first issues and get them signed, as a set. Event takes place on Wednesday, July 27th from 5:00pm – 8:00pm.
