It’s time once again for the “Superheroes for Hospice” charity comic convention, taking place this Saturday, November 10th at the Barnabas Health Hospice and Palliative Care Center (BHHPCC).

This time we’ve added a special extra component to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. Attendees who bring non-perishable food items will receive a free comic book for each item (up to five food items per person with an expiration date not older than 2012).

The event takes place from 10AM to 6PM and benefits patients and families served by BHHPCC. I will be there autographing copies of my ARCHIE’S WEIRD MYSTERIES and VINCENT PRICE books along with various comic book projects.


Of course, I’m not the only attraction at this charity event. Several other comic industry pros will be on hand to autograph comics and do sketches and there will also be auctions for original murals and other items. As always there will also be plenty of comics for sale from all decades. More details on the event and the lectures can be found when you click on this link.

Now here’s a clip from the audio/video podcast, “Fever Keeps It Real” – the fine folks who run the show, Paul and Linda Wein dropped by the September, 2011 “Superheroes for Hospice<” convention and interviewed me about Archie’s Weird Mysteries and the charity starting at 3:46 – enjoy!
