Star Wars artist Joe Coroney and members of the 501st will be in Hilliard, Ohio for the Packrat Comics Anniversary Celebration this weekend. Here is the press release.
"Packrat's Anniversary Celebration
We are pleased to announce that on February 3, 2007 Packrat Comics will have none other than the world famous WWF Heavyweight Wrestling Champion The Iron Sheik for a special guest appearance to help us celebrate in style our anniversary. In addition we will also have an artist alley with such talented individuals as Joe Corroney, Josh Medors, Andy Bennett, Sean Forney, Stratos, Daryl Banks, JD Larabee, Seth Lyons, and M.A.D. and many more.
****GUEST UPDATE*** The Iron Sheik will be here from 1-4pm for augtographs. The cost of an autograph will be $15 for an 8x10 photo of the Shiek and up to 2 additional items you that you bring (i.e. action figure).
The 501st has agreed to security detail - so come get your picture taken with a stormtrooper, jedi or maybe, if we're lucky, Darth Vader. (* Special reminder from TheForce.net to all you Star Wars fans - be sure to get a picture and then go here to enter to win some fabulous prizes from the 501st!)
We will also be hosting our famous $1.00 back issue sale which means any book under $10 is only $1.00 and anything priced over is half off. We have restocked from our Midnight Madness Sale and have well over 150 long boxes that means over 50,000 comics on sale. We have also compiled over 1,500 Silver Age comics that will be available for the first time ever at this sale starting as low as $3.00*. If you have a subscription with us come in and get your early Preferred Customer Ticket for an exclusive Friday preview when you will be able to shop from 5pm - 8pm.
As many of you know when we hold a party of this magnitude we rent additional space to accommodate everyone. And of course free food and entertainment (provided by Stratos) for all will be provided.
If you are an artist/writer/comic creator and are interested in being part of this event, feel free to contact us to work out the details.
