Following the initial announcement last month by Boom Island Brewing Company, The Hero Initiative has revealed more details about the debut of the craft beer Gravity No. 9 at Wizard World Minneapolis.
The Belgian strong features a label specially designed by Fables creator Bill Willingham to support the organization, which helps to provide a financial safety net for creators in need.
The limited-edition beer will be introduced at 6 p.m. Friday, May 1, at Boom Island (2014 Washington Ave. North in north Minneapolis), where Willingham will be on hand to autograph the label. A portion of proceeds from the event will benefit The Hero Initiative.
A second party will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 2, in Room 208 of the Minneapolis Convention Center, where Gravity No. 9 will be on tap, and Willingham will be available to answer questions. Limited-edition Gravity No. 9 prints and pint glasses will also be available for purchase.
In addition, Batman Beyond writer and longtime Superman artist Dan Jurgens will appear from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m Friday, May 1, at The Hero Initiative booth (#1323), while Willingham will be there exclusively on Saturday, May 2, to sign autographs and draw sketches.
Check out the fliers for the events below. Wizard World Minneapolis will be held May 1-3.
