Official Press Release
LOS ANGELES (January 22, 2008) – The Hero Initiative is proud to announce its slate of booth activities for this year’s Phoenix Cactus Comic Con.
Lunch with Mark Waid!
What could be cooler than that? Think about it: Mark’s the writer of The Flash! Kingdom Come! Captain America! And the newly minted editor-in-chief of BOOM! Studios! If you’ve ever dreamed of getting into the comics biz as a writer or artist, you can have an entire lunch’s worth of advice, mentoring and tutoring from a guy who’s been in comics for 20 years and somehow lived through it! He’s seen and done it all.
The lunch will take place on Saturday, 26 JAN at 1 PM and the winner MUST be on-site at con to claim their auction winnings!
