Official Press Release
On Friday February 3rd, Austin Books & Comics will host a fundraiser
and membership drive for the CBLDF from 8-11 PM with special guest
Terry Moore, creator of Eisner Award winning STRANGERS IN PARADISE:
http://www.strangersinparadise.com/ to support the preservation of
First Amendment rights for members of the comics community.
“This is a great opportunity for us to help the cause of free speech,”
said Austin Books & Comics Owner Brad Bankston. “This fund is a
necessity in the ever evolving marketplace, not everyone is lucky
enough to live in a town as free-minded as Austin.”
The party will be limited to 200 tickets sold for a $10 donation.
CBLDF members get in free: memberships will be sold at the door for
$25. Their donation gets partygoers food, beer and an exclusive
STRANGERS IN PARADISE lithograph produced by Terry Moore especially
for the event. Partygoers also receive a 25% discount on all graphic
novels/trade paperbacks and 50% off back stock comics. There will also
be a chance for attendees to win door prizes including STRANGERS IN
PARADISE statues autographed by Terry Moore and master sculptor
Clayburn S. Moore. Terry Moore will be doing original sketches for
additional donations and there will be a silent auction for comics
merchandise donated by Austin Books & Comics, Terry Moore, Clayburn S.
Moore, and Texas publishers Antarctic Press, Lone Star Press, Penny
Farthing Press and Viper Comics.
CBLDF Executive Director, Charles Brownstein, commented, “Austin Books
has gone above and beyond in creating a great event that rewards the
Fund’s members. We’re grateful to Brad and his excellent crew, and to
Terry and Robyn Moore for getting together to put on a great show for
this great cause”.
Fans will also get to hang out with Terry Moore, creator of the
internationally published story of three friends, Francine, Katchoo
and David and the people they fall in and out of love with. It’s a
tale of dark pasts and hopeful futures, double-crosses and true
friendship, love and hate.
In other words: it’s a story of real life, kicked up a notch.
SiP creator Terry Moore says, “This is going to be a great party for a
cause we really believe in. I look forward to meeting all the great
fans in Austin and to doing my bit to support the CBLDF’s important work.”
