In other news, we lost three awesome comic book creators over the last three weeks.
Horror comics great
passed away over the weekend, while Underground Comix legends
died within ten days of each other earlier this month. Our condolences go out to
their families, and all of the fans of their wonderful work. They will never be
forgotten by those of us who love comics.
A Berni Wrightson Catalog that will be auctioned off this Saturday!
On a related topic, we are following up our extremely successful benefit poker
tournament of last Saturday (75 players -$2,045.00 raised for the
St. Francis Center for the Homeless!)
with a special benefit auction of comics, trade paperbacks, comics hardbacks, toys,
statues, and other collectibles. This benefit auction will run simultaneous with our
regular monthly auction, with every other auction item being sold to benefit the
White Rose Scholarship Fund.
To honor Bernie, Skip, and Jay I am contributing several examples of their work from my
personal collection to the
portion of our auction. I'll have the list of items that I am donating in Wednesday's newsletter.

This special benefit auction will be held next Saturday morning (March 25th), starting
at 11:30 AM, at our
Jason St. Mega-Store.
Our company portion of the auction will feature 300-500 items, all of which will be offered
with no minimum bid required. As regards the benefit portion of the auction, we already have
about 100 items, but could definitely use a few more. If you have some unwanted comics or
collectibles in your own collection that you would be willing to contribute, we would
appreciate your kindness very much. You can drop off your contributions at any of
or mail them in to 4600 Jason St. Denver, CO 80211. Please mark WHITE ROSE on the outside

On a side note, the
White Rose Scholarship Fund
is the educational component of the
Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire,
the LGBTQ organization of which I am a leader. We gave out $17,000 in scholarship grants
last June to about a dozen kids (both straight and gay) who otherwise could not have continued
in school. I have attended the
awards ceremony for the past three years, and I cannot begin to tell you how grateful these
young people are for our scholarship grants.
is also staffed completely by volunteers, so 100% of the money raised go directly to the
kids. In many regards, that is why I support the
Feeding Denver's Hungry,
and other grassroots community organizations that have no overhead. Simply put, I want to
make absolutely certain that any contributions we receive go directly to those in need.
Josh and Derek at the HELP DESK!
I will close with a quick mention that our comics and book sales at our
Jason St. Mega-Store
are running at an astonishingly high 34% over this same time period last year! In large
measure, this growth has resulted from our combining our vast
online comics inventory
last May. Our staff at our new "Help Desk" in the back of the
can assist anyone visiting to easily access any item in
our entire website inventory.
It took a little while for word of this great new benefit to get out in the Denver fan
community, but now our Help Desk staff is busy pretty much all day long. I absolutely love
it when things that we plan work out well for everyone!
