Press Release:

Women of Wonder Day returns to Heroes and Fantasies on Sunday October 20, 2013 from noon till 5:00 pm!

The event will include a celebrity memorabilia auction with autographed items from celebrities like Stephanie Meyer (Twilight books), Kevin Conroy (Batman), and Ioan Gruffold plus original artwork that feature comic book heroines donated by featured artists such as Neal Adams (Batman and Green Lantern), George Perez (New Teen Titans, Wonder Woman), Gary Frank (Batman and Shazam), Tom Grummet (Avengers), Tony Fleecs (My Little Pony), Greg Land (X-men and Iron Man) and many others. This is a family event that will have comic book artists from around the country signing books, sketching and photo opportunities with super heroines. We invite visitors to come dressed in costume.

In October 2006-2010, the Wonder Woman Day IV events raised over $110,000 for Domestic Violence programs in Portland, Oregon and Flemington, NJ. The five-year combination of auctions of over 1,100 original art pieces, plus collectibles, autograph signings, and photo opportunities garnered spectacular turnouts and four Mayoral Proclamations! On October 30, 2011, the new Women of Wonder Day — again as a part of National Domestic Violence Awareness Month — took place, returning to Excalibur Books in Portland, Oregon, and Comic Fusion in Flemington, New Jersey, as well as at Heroes and Fantasies in San Antonio, Texas! $5,500 was raised in San Antonio and $24,000 was raised with all three auctions. This year, we have online bidding at the link!
