Heroescon update!

Team Cul de Sac wants to give a big shout out to Shelton Drum who runs the best comic convention in America! His team of Rico, Seth and Heather helped us get the word out about Team Cul de Sac and provided both Richard and the Team with tables and support. Thank you all!

Dave Johnson, Jeff Johnson and Dan Panosian are co-founders of the Drink and Draw Social Club or D.D.S.C. for short invited Team Cul de sac and special Bartender Richard Thompson to join them. TCDS received all of the donations and tips from the event! We'd especially like to thank all the cartoonists that did spur of the moment drawings and donated them, while hanging around until late in the evening. (Perhaps we can get some of the ones that we bought scanned and put up here.) After buying t-shirts and special limited edition (of 25) prints to sell, largely due to the Drink and Draw Social Club, we cleared $900.00 for the Fox Foundation.

We still have a few signed and numbered prints ($50.00) and t-shirts ($20.00).

Don't forget we debuted our fanzine and it is still availiable for you to buy ($5.00). Stay tuned for a Paypal option to make buying tchotckes easier.

Favorite Comic Zine: Update

Craig Fischer here. As I wrote in a previous post, I'm putting together a zine to sell in order to raise money for the Team. The zine, called Favorites, consists of essays written by comics critics, artists and bloggers about their most cherished comic strips, comic books and graphic novels.

I'm happy to report that the zine is on schedule to premiere at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC, coming up on June 3-5. Favorites will cost 5 dollars, and every cent of each sale will go towards research for a cure for Parkinson's disease. After Heroes, we'll make the zine available through the mail.

I'd like to thank the contributors to the zine, all of whom wrote sensational essays about some exceptional comics. I'd also like to thank some guy named Richard Thompson, who very graciously volunteered to draw the cover for Favorites. (Richard's cover illustration is at the top of this post.)

So stop by the Team table at Heroes, say hello, spend five bucks on our zine, and help us battle Parkinson's. See you then!
