Want To Hang Out With Your Favorite Comic Creators?

For one night only and to support Hero Initiative, you can hang out with Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Connor!

Comic conventions are awesome because you get the opportunity to meet some of your favorite creators. The downside? Usually you (the fan) will have to stand in line for 20 minutes to an hour to wait for your favorite comics writer/artist to give you their autograph. Then, you have to move right along to make way for the person behind you to get a minute to talk to the creator, who also happens to be their favorite. 
 
Wait, that doesn't sound like very much fun, does it? Sure, it's cool to meet them, but often fans don't get a whole lot of face time. Trust me, I know, I've been there too. But wouldn't it be cool to just hang out with some of your favorite comics creators AND support a great cause? Well if you love Jimmy Palmiotti, Amanda Conner, Tom Jane, Tim Bradstreet or Dave Johnson; then here is your chance to sit down with all of them next Friday, October 29th 2010 at The Long Beach Convention Center for 2 hours!

Join funnyman and writer Jimmy Palmiotti along with Amanda Connor, Tom Jane, Tim Bradstreet, and the Rev. Dave Johnson for conversation and cocktails at Long Beach’s Gladstone’s Restaurant, near The Long Beach Convention Center, Friday, October 29, 5 -7pm to help raise money for Hero Initiative.
Amanda Connor of Power Girl and Supergirl,  actor Tom Jane of The Punisher, Boogie Nights, Thin Red Line and HBO’s current dark comedy Hung,  Eisner Award-nominated illustrator Tim Bradstreet, and one of the finest cover designers ever, The Reverend Dave Johnson, will join Jimmy Palmiotti  in one room talking about what drives them in this industry…and what drives them crazy in the industry.  Who knows where the conversation will go? This is a private party YOU do not want to miss.

These five creators will be holding a "Booze and Banter" with 20 lucky fans and all proceeds from tickets sales will go to the Hero Initiative. If you will be in the area and/or in attendance at Long Beach Comic-Con, then be sure buy yourself a ticket while you still can! Only 20 fans will be allowed at the event, so get in on this while there is still time! For more information and to purchase your ticket, check out Ebay link!

When you said favorite, I thought you meant favorite, not people I've never heard of.

@Babs: Now that you mention it, is Amanda Conner the person who... No. No, sorry. I was thinking of Jack Kirby. My mistake.

What's with your attitude? Amanda is an amazing artist and these 5 talented people are getting together for a great cause.

@Babs: Sorry, I'm just being snarky. I actually have heard of some of these people, but none of them are really people I take notice of.

Then you're only missing out on great stuff. Besides Amanda Conner, not taking notice of Tim Bradstreet is pretty odd since he's one of the most acclaimed artists working today. Go take a look at some of his Punisher and Hellblazer covers to see how utterly misplaced your snark is.

@ForbushBug: Is Bradstreet the guy who does those photorealistic Punisher covers? If so, that's actually pretty cool.

I bet that might be awkward if those people were not as chill as I imagine they are. Axel Rose for example would be terrible to do a meet and greet with.

LOL show up to meet and greet, get hammered, taxi home, sleep and forget con. HRMN....
