Official Press Release
LOS ANGELES, CA – The ACTOR Comic Fund booth (#1100) is THE place to be at this year’s Wizard World Texas convention, which takes place on November 21-23 at the Arlington Convention center. ACTOR’s booth will be one of two locations where fans can be the first to purchase World Premiere copies of Top Cow Productions’ new hit title by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones, Wanted #1. ACTOR is proud to host J.G. at its booth throughout the weekend for signings as well.
And, as a special added bonus, Marvel Editor-In-Chief and ACTOR Board member Joe Quesada will be on hand Saturday to do a very limited number of sketches on ACTOR’s behalf. Quesada, who does no convention sketches or commission work, will do 10 sketches for fans at $100 each on a first-come, first-served basis.
“I gave up doing convention and commissioned sketches over 10 years ago, so this Dallas con will be a great opportunity for anyone who has wanted me to do a sketch to get one and it’s all for a great cause,” said Quesada.
Marvel’s hot Human Torch artist, Skottie Young, will also be on hand to sign and sketch for ACTOR.

Friday, November 21:
JG Jones (Wanted): 12:30 pm – 1:30 pm, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
