Comics Events Movies

CAZ comic creators to help Aurora Riseomic creators and pop culture artists from the Phoenix area will be gathering at Jesse James Comics in Glendale this Saturday, Aug. 18, to create art that will be donated to help raise funds that will support the victims and victim’s families of the horrible Aurora, Colo., shooting tragedy that took place on July 20, 2012.

All C’s Collectibles, Aurora’s only comic shop, will be holding it’s “Aurora Rise: Benefit Event” on August 25 & 26, and the art created and donated by our Arizona artists and other comic book professionals, including Mike Mignola, Matt Fraction and Steve Niles, will be sold at All C’s silent auction. All proceeds from the event will go directly to the victims, their families and/or designated charities.

If you can’t make it out to Jesse James Comics on Saturday, you can still help the cause by bidding on an amazing piece of art by Robert James Luedke. This 18 x 24 poster is signed by pop culture icons like Stan Lee, Peter Mayhew, Lou Ferrigno, George Perez, Arthur Suydam and more. All the proceeds go to the Aurora Rise Benefit coffers.

The Jesse James Comics Aurora Rises Benefit “Draw and Donate” event is a great opportunity to show our friends in the Colorado geek community that Arizona stands with them, so head out Saturday to meet and greet some of our local talent, make a donation and help make a difference.
