Local Comics News - Free Avalanche Tickets Drawing Tomorrow

Howdy!

I want to begin today by letting you know that last Saturday's benefit poker tournament at our Jason St. store for Children's Hospital was a great success, raising over $2,200! for the kids being helped in the H.I.V. ward. Our sincere thanks go out to everyone from Mile High Comics, and the Royal Poker Club, who helped to put on this event. I also want to thank all 61 of our players from Saturday. Thank you very much for all your kindness. You are awesome!

So you know, we are not yet completely done with our Children's Hospital fundraiser, as we still have five pairs of Avalanche Hockey tickets to give away tomorrow (Wednesday) at 5 PM. These seats are in a luxury suite, and are for the Avalanche game which will be held Saturday February 4, at 1 PM. If you would like to enter the drawing for a pair of these awesome hockey tickets, you can do so at any one of our three Mile High Comics retail stores. Tickets for our drawing are $5 each, or 5/$20, with all proceeds going to the ICRME and the kids at Children's Hospital. You need not be present to win!

In other news, we have been adding thousands more comics into the huge new $1 selections that we are building within all three of our stores. This is becoming a very big deal, as we have seen unprecedented traffic in this area over the past four weeks, so we are all working diligently to expand these selections for you as quickly as possible. I snapped four quick photos this morning of a few dozen issues that I selected for Jason Street's $1 bins just last evening. The Bronze Age comics are lower grade, but remain as remarkable bargains at just $1 each...

Another bit of news that I think will please you is at we have reached a deal with VENOM artist Sam De Larosa to appear at Jason St. during this year's Free Comic Book Day celebration on May 6th. Sam will be signing autographs (for a $5 fee...) and also offering original art for sale. Sam will be waiving a portion of his fee however, for contributors to our charity of the day, "Feeding Denver's Hungry." More details will be released as we get closer to the date.

I am going to close today's newsletter with another charity appeal, this time involving the specific needs of women who find themselves homeless. As you are probably already aware, Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire Empress 43, Norrie Reynolds, has been working tirelessly to help to feed the poor, disabled and elderly people served by Urban Peak and the St. Francis center. Norrie, brainstorming with Feeding Denver's Hungry leader, Kristina Fellows, came up with the idea that we should create a special day where we focus on the specific needs of the dozens of women who avail themselves of our services each week. They worked with the other female volunteers of "Feeding Denver's Hungry," and came up with the following list of critically needed items:
