What's New? : Update April 02, 2013

Tuesday 4/02 DC ENTERTAINMENT WE CAN BE HEROES CAMPAIGN = DC is working with INDIE GO GO (a fundraising site similar to Kickstarter) to raise money to help feed the hungry in Africa. Making a pledge gets the donor some DC gifts from $10 for Batman downloads to a signed edition of INJUSTICE:GODS AMONG US for $250 to getting yourself drawn into a Batman graphic novel for $1,000. Go to www.indiegogo.com/at/wecanbeheroes to get more details and make a pledge.

Tuesday 4/02 GHASTLY AWARDS keeps me updated on their efforts to find the best horror comics of 2013 and sends me monthly recommendations. For March they are recommending Hack/Slash 25, Todd The Ugliest Kid on Earth 3, Hoax Hunters 8, Change 4, Mystery Society 2013 Special, Five Ghosts:The Haunting Of Fabian Gray 1, Anathema 3, and Rachel Rising 15. That's quite a list!

Tuesday 4/02 FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is Saturday, May 4 and the staff at Captain Blue Comics in Newark, DE are planning a party with Spider-Man, Darth Vader, Boba Fett, The Batmobile and more with guest comic book artists, art classes and free comic books. They always do it right and get big crowds.

Tuesday 4/02 CELEBRITIES IN COMICS = helps introduce comics to non-readers and gets them interested, and nobody does this to the extent that Bluewater Productions does. A look at their 4/03 releases is a good example: Dirk Benedict In The 25th Century 1 written by Benedict, Misadventures Of Adam West Volume One TPB written by West, William Shatner Presents Man O'War 2, Orbit The Cast Of Doctor Who Bonus Edition (biography), and Fame 50 Cent (biography).

Tuesday 4/02 NEW HORROR COMICS ANTHOLOGY is planned from Evil Jester Books. The Authors were announced today for the first four issues of Evil Jester Presents and it's impressive: Joe McKinney, Gregory Norris, Mark C Scioneax, Gary Braunbeck, Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Holly Newstein Hautala, Vince Liaguno, Jack Ketchum, Charles Day, David Hayes, Taylor Grant, Aric Sundquist, Suzanne Robb, Jeremy C Shipp, Jonathan Mayberry, Jason V Brock, Tim Waggoner, Jeff Strand, Ramsey Campbell, Mort Castle, Michael C Lea, Marianne Halbert, Robert Shane Wilson, Edward M Erdelac, Gene O'Neil, William F Nolan and Jim Chambers. Whew! A Kickstarter campaign is raising funds for production costs and offering gifts for various levels of donations. Go to www.kickstarter.com/projects/eviljesterpresents.
