NEXT STOPS: BRIDGEPORT, CT AND WEST ORANGE, NJ!
Hello again, folks! I want to thank those who stopped on by to see me at the Asbury Park Comic Con a few weeks ago. My spring tour of the Tri-State Area continues this week with not one but two stops! First, this Thursday, April 18th I’ll be back in Bridgeport, Connecticut for another BEDLAM AT THE BIJOU double-feature screening. Yes, Brian Solomon has graciously invited me back as his special guest for an inspired double-feature of the classic Rankin-Bass monster bash MAD MONSTER PARTY and a film it helped inspire, TIM BURTON’S THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS. We’ll talk about the films, give out cool goodies, do trivia and whatnot. I’ll also have ARCHIE’S WEIRD MYSTERIES and VINCENT PRICE books available for sale there (I’ll sign them, too).
The fun takes place on Thursday, April 18th starting at 7PM. The theater is located at 275 Fairfield Avenue in Bridgeport, Connecticut and you can phone them at (203) 332-3228 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. You can also visit the site for this screening by clicking here.
This coming Saturday I’ll be back in my home state of New Jersey for another SUPERHEROES FOR HOSPICE Charity Comic Book Sale. This will be another full-service show where I’ll have the works with me. As always, there will also be (long) boxes and boxes of comics for sale from all decades as well as other great comics creators on hand to autograph comics, do sketches and sell original art. Proceeds benefit Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center.
The event takes place from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 20th at the Barnabas Health Corporate Office, located at 95 Old Short Hills Road in West Orange (directly across the street from Saint Barnabas Medical Center). Admission is free. For more information or to make a comic book donation to Superheroes for Hospice, please contact Spiro Ballas at email@example.com or 973-322-4866.
