Origin Issue: Charlie Roberts


Our old pal Charlie Roberts was profiled recently over at The Scoop:

I didn't realize I was a collector until I had a moment of truth experience. Warning: the following may not be suitable for young readers:

At age nine in 1954 I had a few older comics and enjoyed reading comic strips, but hadn't considered myself a collector. I was coming home from a friend's house on a hot summer afternoon, and noticed a comic book lying on a neighbor's lawn. There, gleaming in the sun, was Dell’s Four Color# 335 (Francis The Talking Mule) from 1951, the first issue. As I got closer, something seemed askew...

Read the entire thing HERE!

Charlie Roberts is also a very funny guy, by the way!

On track to a ton


The annual Comix Connection Holiday Food Drive is well on track to a ton of food. So far we have had 303 pounds of food donated to the York Rescue Mission and 212 pounds of food donated to the Central Pennsylvania Food bank for a running total of 515 pounds of food. This may not sound too huge but there has already been another giant load picked up at each store AND the barrels are near full again, which means we have four more loads uncounted! I figure there was at least another 500 pounds of food or more in those two loads, plus at least a couple hundred pounds at the stores now, so we're possibly at 1200 pounds or more at this point. We have fourteen more days to hit the 2000 pound mark... please donate! As the Rescue Mission and the Food Bank get back to us with exact numbers, I'll post them here. C'mon people, let's do this!

Remember:

FOR EACH FOOD ITEM DONATED, YOU MAY SELECT ONE COMIC FROM OUR BACK ISSUE BINS, ABSOLUTELY FREE, YOUR CHOICE!

FOR EACH FOOD ITEM DONATED, YOU WILL RECEIVE ONE ENTRY INTO OUR COMIX CONNECTION FOOD DRIVE 2011 PRIZE DRAWING (WITH MORE PRIZES BEING ADDED!)


FOR EACH STORE:

GRAND PRIZE - $100.00 Shopping Spree!

SECOND PRIZE - $50.00 Shopping Spree!

THIRD PRIZE - $25.00 Shopping Spree!

1 food item = 1 contest entry + 1 free bin comic!

Let's break the ONE TON barrier!

BONUS: Longtime fan Tom Hayes donated a stack of review-copy DVDs he had as bonus prizes, so add that to the Prize Vault!

UPDATE 12/19/11: Ned said that the latest pile sent to the York Rescue Mission was an additional 307 pounds, which by my back-of-the-envelope estimate puts all of us at 822 POUNDS, plus we're still waiting to hear back from the Central PA Food Bank for one load, PLUS the bins at both stores are at least half-full already! C'MON EVERYONE, WE CAN DO THIS! BRING US YOUR CANS!

Jim Lee Free Comic Book Day 2012 T-shirt revealed!


From Diamond Comics' website:

(BALTIMORE, MD) — (December 13, 2011) — DC Entertainment and Diamond Comic Distributors unveiled today a custom design for 2012’s Free Comic Book Day t-shirt, illustrated by legendary artist and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee. The image features the Justice League, as seen in the bestselling comic book series written by Geoff Johns and illustrated by Lee.

The shirt will retail for $14.99 (SM-XL), $17.99 for (XXL) and will be on sale in comic shops on April 11, in advance of Free Comic Book Day on May 5. It will be solicited in January 2012's Diamond PREVIEWS catalog, and customers are encouraged to preorder with their local comic shop by January 18.

The illustration by Lee is an homage to a classic piece of Justice League art by José Luis García-López.

"It's an honor to have Jim Lee design 2012’s FCBD Commemorative T-shirt," said Free Comic Book Day spokesperson Leslie Bowser. "Jim’s artwork featuring the Justice League from DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 will certainly entice a lot of current fans. And it’s all for a good cause, as all proceeds go to our marketing efforts to spread the word about FCBD to new customers."

The FCBD Commemorative Artist T-Shirt is a growing tradition, with a new artist providing artwork for the special design each year. This year’s shirt is a follow-up to the first two commemorative T-shirts, which featured artwork from Darwyn Cooke and Sergio Aragones in 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Look for more FCBD news and updates on the FCBD website, www.freecomicbookday.com.; become a fan at Facebook, www.facebook.com/freecomicbook; and follow us on Twitter: www.Twitter.com/freecomicbook.


If anyone would like one of these awesome shirts, please let your Friendly Neighborhood Comix Connection Counter Monkey know as soon as possible!
