Hello fans! Well, my fall, 2014 NJ/NY tour rolls on!
This Saturday, November 8th it's time for another Superheroes For Hospice charity comic book sale, from 10 to 6. I’ve been involved with this event since its inception in 2009. A few times a year, the organization holds charity comic sales to raise money for the Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center by selling comics, books, toys and related items. Proceeds have helped assist individuals and families dealing with life-limiting illnesses. The event has attracted top industry talent who often appear to sign autographs and give entertaining lectures about the art form. I’ll be signing an array of my work per usual. The event takes place at 95 Old Short Hills Rd., West Orange, NJ 07052, across the street from Saint Barnabas Medical Center.
The following day, Sunday, November 9th I'm making my second appearance at the Albany Comic Con. The Albany Con offers a plethora of comics creators, comic and toy dealers, auctions and more. It also offers an intimacy and immediacy not always found at the larger shows. It was a wonderful time last year and I'm looking forward to meeting new and old fans alike again this year. For more information visit the Albany Comic Con website.
As usual, at both events I'll have copies of the Archie's Weird Mysteries and Vincent Price books, and new for this year I'll also have the recently released Archie's Favorite Christmas Comics, which I researched and compiled, as well as contributed introductory text. It also reprints one of my all-time favorite Archie's Weird Mysteries stories I wrote, featuring those denizens of Weatherworld, Jack Frost and his sister, Wind Jill! I hope you stop by and see me!
And speaking of Archie and Christmas... it's not too early to rock the halls!

Happy Halloween, Scared Silly fans! Hope you all have a howling good time today!
After you sock away your candy-ful bounty, why not come out and meet me on Saturday, November 1st at 2PM. It’s a day-after-Halloween treat as Montclair, New Jersey's East Side Mags hosts a personal appearance from yours truly. I’ll be signing copies of the Archie's Weird Mysteries collection, compiling some of the best stories from the series of comics I wrote.
East Side Mags is a newer comic shop on the scene, and a great one at that. Owner Jeff Beck not only is passionate about the comics hobby, but dedicated to nurturing a love of comics in younger readers, at a time when many comics fans are adults.
At this signing, I'll be autographing alongside my Archie's Weird Mysteries colleague, Fernando Ruiz, the brilliant artist of the series. I will also be autographing copies of the Midnight Marquee Actor Series: Vincent Price edition to which I contributed a chapter. And I'll have plenty of free Scared Silly bookmarks to hand out, too. Hope to see you there! :)
EAST SIDE MAGS is located at 7 South Fullerton Ave. Montclair, NJ 07042. (862) 333-4961
Now enjoy this review of the Archie’s Weird Mysteries comic series!
