Press Release

Garth Ennis, Amanda Conner, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Paul Mounts have

created a monster and you're invited to celebrate its birth. On

Wednesday, July 24, PRO, the story of the world's first super-

powered prostitute hits the streets of New York with a gala signing

at Jim Hanley's Universe and a raunchy after-party at Josie Woods

Pub. Both events will benefit the CBLDF.

Ennis, Conner, Palmiotti, and Mounts will be at Hanley's from 4 pm

to 7 pm signing autographs while the Fund signs up members and sells

a benefit print available only at this event. "If you like this

book, you need to join the Fund," Jimmy Palmiotti says. If you sign

up for membership at the signing we'll enter you into a drawing to

win cool stuff from the Pro team and the Fund. "I want to see a new

record set for members signed up in one day," Palmiotti says, "So

come out and show your support."

After the signing mosey over to Josie Woods where you'll be able to

booze into the wee hours with Garth, Amanda, Jimmy, and Paul.

Palmiotti says, "The $5 cover benefits the Fund and enters you into

a raffle to win artwork, DVDs, music, assorted X-mas gifts we didn't

have the balls to return, crap that we need to get rid of, a porno

movie or two, a grab at Nelson's ass. We'll even have our very

own "pro" at the party that will be giving lap dances away as


"We hope to raise enough cash to help the Fund pay for the legal

representation we're gonna need for doing this comic, so come to the

signing, come to the party, and buy a few raffle tickets. Everyone

will win something, even if its just a drunken good time."

Everyone over 21 is invited to the Josie Woods party and bringing

friends is encouraged. Come out and have an evening you wish you'll

remember and help the Fund raise money to fight new threats against

free speech in comics.
