Hero Initiative Hits SDCC 2013 With Lady Death eo

SD_exclusives_2013The Hero Initiative, the charitable organization dedicated to helping veteran comic creators in medical or financial need, is travelling into Comic-Con International in San Diego July 17th-21st at the San Diego Convention center. We have exclusives, parties and special guests throughout the weekend that you will not want to miss! Booth #5003 is the place to be!

Hero is proud to release our exclusive limited edition of The Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #43. Now in its fifth decade, the Guide is the preeminent source for comic book pricing information, and SDCC is where to get it first! The cover, featuring Francine and Katchoo from Strangers in Paradise dressed as Wonder Woman and Zatanna is by famed SiP creator Terry Moore and colored by Brian Miller. This Hero-exclusive edition is limited to 500 copies in hardcover only at $35.

In addition, Hero has an exclusive Lady Death: Wicked Ways #1 with a new cover by Darick Robertson enhanced with Swarovski crystals and signed by Lady Death creator Brian Pulido. Only 99 copies have been made! This treasure comes bagged and boarded with certificate of Authenticity for $40.

Ballistic is Darick Robertson and Adam Egypt Mortimer’s madcap, psychedelic, utterly wacko buddy adventure about Butch and his best friend Gun, a genetically modified, foul-mouthed firearm. Ballistic marks Darick Robertson’s return to the hard sci-fi world-building of his classic Transmetropolitan. This Hero Initiative variant features EXCLUSIVE cover art and is limited to only 500 copies at $10!

All three exclusives can be purchased at booth #5003 while supplies last!

And you gotta eat—even in San Diego! Five lucky winners will get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to have lunch and get a sketch from famed Watchmen artist Dave Gibbons! Bid NOW in Hero’s eBay auctions!

About the Author

Richard is the driving force behind Comics for Sinners. His love and admiration for female comic book characters is virtually unparalleled, which immediately explains his biggest 'sin': his Hot Mummy fetish. This sketchbook theme is philogynistic in nature and even the source of his WIP comic book series "The Sisterhood".
