Official Press Release
There's a spiffy new Sky-Dog Website, featuring news, preview art and a growing contributor list for MORE FUND COMICS, the star-studded benefit comic for the CBLDF. This jam-packed anthology features art and stories by such luminaries as John Romita, Michael Avon Oeming, Mark Schultz, Frank Cho, and others. Featuring a George Perez Hulk cover, MORE FUND COMICS will be premiering at the Baltimore Comicon September 20-21, and hits comic shops soon after.
The new Sky-Dog site, which also promotes Gallagher's own Buzzboy graphic novel series, has an up-to-date listing of creators (and what they are doing), preview art, press releases, and a list of More Fund promo appearances, such as the San Diego Comic-Con, and WizardWorld Chicago. "Fans who wants to see what's inside this book should check out the site," said Gallagher, "then see more fun(d) stuff at any of the conventions we'll be attending." Gallagher will also be adding a list of creators attending the Baltimore Comicon, so fans can stop by, and get dozens of MORE FUND creators' signatures!
"The art and stories coming in from people like Erik Larsen and Scott Sava are top-notch, and we wanted retailers and fans to see that now," said publisher/editor John Gallagher," everyone is coming in, giving their A-game, in hopes of and raising awareness and funds for the CBLDF. Hopefully this preview art on the site will help push sales, and make some extra bucks for the Fund." MORE FUND will feature comic stories ("Savage Dragon" by Erik Larsen, "Fantasy Line" by Marz & Peterson, "Usagi Yojimbo" by Stan Sakai, to name a few), pin-ups ("Grey Watch" by John Romita, Jr, "Xenozoic Tales" by Mark Schultz), and sketches in a special CBLDF Sketchbook section (Tellos by Mike Wieringo, Liberty Meadows by Frank Cho).
