This is a duel event. We're running a membership drive/fundraiser for the Hero Initiative. We're also celebrating the release of Michael Moreci's new series from BOOM! Studios, CURSE.
In conjunction with the release of the new comic book CURSE by BOOM! Studios, Aw Yeah comic book store in Skokie, Illinois will be hosting a Hero Initiative membership party, Saturday, January 25 at 6 p.m. All proceeds from the membership drive will benefit Hero, the non-profit organization that aids comic creators in need.
Aw Yeah, located at 4933 Oakton Street, will host a party with food, drink, and much more! When attendees sign up to become a Hero Initiative member, they will receive a free copy of CURSE #1 signed by co-writer Michael Moreci (HOAX HUNTERS), who will be in attendance, as well as entry into the party (21 and over only, please). CURSE is written by MoreciTim Daniel (ENORMOUS), and illustrated by Colin Lorimer (UXB) and Riley Rossmo (DRUMHELLAR). Fans are in store for a smart, realistic, and haunting read.
CURSE is a story about Laney Griffin, a man who will do anything to save his son from leukemia, but the cost of treatment has broken him financially. When he pursues an elusive murderer in the wilderness of his small, rural community in the hopes of securing a substantial bounty, Laney is confronted with something he never could have expected: a werewolf. The captive lycan, in human form, turns Laney’s life upside-down, forcing him to confront his haunted past and race against the clock—because the wolf will return, and Laney’s son’s condition continues to worsen. CURSE is a story of a family’s survival at all costs.
In addition, BOOM! Studios has donated free comics to be given away at the event on a first come, first served basis! Titles include HIT, 2 GUNS, FREELANCERS, CLIVE BARKER’S HELLRAISER, HIGHER EARTH, and DEATHMATCH.
Don’t miss out!
