I'm back in Colorado after a whirlwind trip to the spectacularly glamorous
Night of a Thousand Gowns
in New York City. I attended the ball with our
Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire
reigning Monarchs Empress 43 Norrie Reynolds and Emperor 43 Manny Sexton. They had a great time,
and looked absolutely fabulous as they represented Denver at the most prestigious event in the

I also had a wonderful experience in New York, although I spent a great deal of my time working to
learn the appropriate protocols of my new position as an Heir Apparent. Blessedly, there were seven
other Heirs (out of the approximately 40 who form the
International Court Council)
Night of a Thousand Gowns.
They helped me to know when I should be in my official robes, when to appear on stage, and other
very important details. Thanks to their kind assistance I felt quite welcome, and completely comfortable
in my prestigious new role as Heir Apparent.

One comics-related note from
Night of a Thousand Gowns
Sir Ian McKellen
(Gandalf from LOTR and Magneto from X-MEN) was directly behind me on to the red carpet for our photo
shoot by the New York Press. He then also gave the keynote address, during which he regaled us with
tales of his coming out of the closet as gay during the far less welcoming days of the late-1970's,
and early 1980's. His message was simply that being true to who you are ultimately matters far more
than anything else in your life. Makes sense to me...

through this week, as will a very large grouping of rare Modern variant editions that Will Moulton
located last week. Will also added a spectacular run of

My final bit of news for today is a quick mention that we will be staging one of our awesome
Texas Hold'em Poker Tournaments
this Saturday at 11 AM at our
Jason St. Mega-Store.
This month's tournament is a benefit for the
St. Francis Center for the Homeless,
a shelter that helps the elderly, disabled, and poorest of our estimated 10,000 citizens who have
nowhere to sleep at night. If you live in Denver, you can sign up in advance for
at any one of
our three stores,
and receive full reimbursement for your $25 entry fee. If you do not live in Denver, but would still
like to make a small contribution to help the folks at the
St. Francis Center,
I will close today's newsletter with sincere thanks to you for your continuing support of my comic book
company. I began
Mile High Comics
with just ten boxes of comic books 47 years ago in my parents basement in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I
was only 14 years old at the time, but I had a crazy dream of spending my lifetime buying and selling old
comics books. Well, sometimes our dreams really do come true! Thanks to the kindness and support of many
thousands of comics fans around the world, including you, I have been blessed to be able to serve comics
fans and collectors for nearly half a century. I am beyond grateful to you for helping me in reaching my
childhood dream. It has been a great life.
