You Should Go to Heroes & Villains Tomorrow

Posted By on Tue, Jul 24, 2012 at 6:00 PM

Of course, as a regular reader of the The Range, you're familiar with Heroes & Villains, the current holder of the Best of Tucson title as Best Comic Book Store, via store employees Eric and Arnie's semi-regular video feature Talking Comics. Tomorrow would be a great day for you to stop by the store, whether you're a regular customer or a first-timer, as a bunch of Tucson artists will be there creating original Batman art to raise money for victims of the Aurora shooting:

This Wednesday (July 25th), fourteen artists are going to set up shop at Heroes and Villains and do $10 sketches of Batman for folks—the entirety of which will go to The New Venture Fund, a charitable organization dedicated to supporting the victims & the families of the victims of the Aurora tragedy.

Those artists are:

Ryan Huna Smith 12pm-2pm
Greg Mannino 12pm-2pm
Adam Rex 12pm-3pm
Jenn Corella 12pm-3pm
Dadicus 2pm-8pm
Ernie Najera 2pm-8pm
Brian Augustyn 2pm-8pm
Eric Schock - 3:30pm-7pm
Clay Lewis 3:30pm-8pm
Hannah Nance Partlow 4pm-6pm
Jason Pedersen 4:30pm-6pm
Liz Danforth 5pm-7pm
Ross Demma 5pm-7pm
Arnie Bermudez 6pm-8pm

In addition to the $10 sketches, there will be several Batman-related pieces up for auction, and $2 memorial ribbons (again, the entirety of which goes towards The New Venture Fund) created by Jason Pedersen.

To donate via telephone, please call 520-321-HERO with your credit card information.

Also, if you happen to go between 4:30-6:30, you can get a signed copy of Eric Esquivel's latest comic Thor: Unkillable Thunder Christ. Make a day of it...get an one-of-a-kind piece of comic art for a good cause and ensure your eternal damnation by picking up Eric's latest blasphemous work. What else are you doing on a Wednesday?
