As promised on the Raynman Power Hour, Galactus WILL make its print debut at
Champion City Comic Con -- BUT ONLY as a feature in the auction, so you better
bring some extra cash, because The Devourer is COMING -- YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!

No, seriously -- Josh is battling a wickedly rare form of cancer and its our job to
institute a little COMIC RELIEF for our brethren and show he is NOT in this fight alone!
So come out to C-4 and get some great work and a great time for a great cause!

CHAMPION CITY IS COMING BACK!!!!!! Saturday September 8th!!!

Bigger and better than ever!!!

There's no denying that last year's show fell somewhat flat for several different reasons.....one founding member was opening a new store front (which will be celebrating a VERY SUCCESSFUL 3rd year anniversary this coming Saturday March 3rd)...and suffered a death in the family the day before the show....the other guy was involved with a very successful local art studio and just starting a new job.

Things fell through the cracks.

But just like a boxer how gets punched in the jaw and hits the mat hard in the third round.....we're getting back up, spitting out the damn bloody mouth piece and gonna kick some ass!

Scott and I CAN NOT thank everybody who could sense we were on our heels last year and stayed in our corner to support us (Frank Raynor, Matt Smith, Raichal Gladman, Ellie Gladman, John Wilson, Chuck Moore, Dustin Carson, Brian Carson, Victor Dandridge and Mike Watson)

Your faith in us is something we greatly appreciate.

And with that Scott and I are COMMITTED more than ever to make Champion City 2012 the most successful show we've put together yet.

And we're bringing in the BIG GUNS to help us pull it off.....we have officially asked four other people who have the best interest of this convention in mind to become official partners in Champion City.

The Champion City Illuminati has been formed.

Scott won't have to talk to hundreds of people while trying to run a business.....I don't have to do the same while involved with Twilight Star.

Six people each with delegated tasks.....all answering to Scott and I.

Last year we may have produced "Music From The Elder" but this year it's time for "Creatures Of The Night" (and if I have to explain that reference....well grab some face paint and Rock-n-Roll All Nite!)

More on the Champion City Illuminati very soon...

But right now.

The bell has sounded.

Round Four Begins Now.

Way to catch it, Brant! "C-4" has SPARKED our entire thematic approach! We feel it'll be rather EXPLOSIVE!!

Been ready for this show since July. Eager to go. Moving furniture to clean has thrown by back out badly. I may not get there unless it eases up a lot.
