Denver Comic-Con Party Costume Contest|
$2,000 in Prizes
One week from today, on Thursday, June 12th, we will be hosting the largest single comics event in the 46-year history of Mile High Comics! Between noon and midnight on that day, the 2014 Denver Comic-Con will begin with a huge autograph signing event in our Jason St. Mega-Store. Lou Ferrigno will begin our epic day by arriving for the party at about noon, being then gradually joined later in the day by comics artists Neal Adams, George Pérez, Greg Horn, and many, many more comics celebrities. At 5 PM, the party then officially begins, with a huge Cosplay performance show, a Cosplay costume contest, and two thpes of live swordfighting. This is going to be an incredibly fun evening for the entire family!

While most of our preparations for the party are right on schedule, we do still need help in a couple of areas. First, we need a few sturdy volunteers willing to help us set up our event stages. This effort involves connecting together pallet racking, laying it down on the concrete floor, and then covering it with plywood. We will then be painting the plywood black, and adding stairs, skirting, and backdrops. Chris will begin this effort on Friday morning, and could easily use 3-4 helpers each day. Even if you can only contribute a few hours, we would appreciate your help. We pay $10 an hour in credit, valid for anything in the store...
Pre-Party Denver Comic Con 2014
A second area where we still need help is with our benefit bake sale. We now have about 30 folks who are bringing baked goods of various kinds, but that still leaves us far short of our needs. We are expecting about 3,000 people to pass through the store during our party next Thursday, so our benefit sale has the potential to raise quite a bit of money for the Denver Children's Advocacy Center, a local safehouse for children who are victims of sexual abuse. But, that potential can only be achieved if we have enough baked goods donations.
Richard J. Brendlinger
If you can bake, and might are willing to contribute to our benefit sale, please contact Richard Brendlinger at
Richard (and Gabby) from the Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire (a registered 501-C3 charity) are in charge of our bake sale, and will make it really easy for you to drop off your donations. Please help so that we can raise as much as possible for the Denver Children's Advocacy Center.
I.C.R.M.E. 1st Annual Cosplay Drag Show
In addition to Richard and Gabby, we will have at least 20 more of the wonderfully talented live performers from the ICRME putting on an incredible all-ages Cosplay performance event during the course of our party. The live performances begin at 7 PM, and should last well after 10 PM. I am one of the members of the ICRME, and since this is officially my event, ICRME tradition dictates that I give the first live performance. I will be dressed as Superman that evening, and will be performing the song Kryptonite as the opening number. You really should try to arrive by 7 as you do not want to miss even one performance of our ICRME Cosplay show...
Pam - Cosplay Costume Contest
My final news note for today is a quick mention that I have decided to contribute a total of $2,000 (!!!) in store credit to be given away as prizes for our Cosplay Costume Contest. Our head comics buyer, Pam Brandle, is coordinating this fun contest, which will begin at 7:30 PM on Thursday evening. She has set up categories for children, teens, adults, and groups. In each category, we will be giving out $500 in store credit prizes, with $200 for first place, $100 for second place, and $50 prizes each for #3-#6. If you are already creating a costume for Denver Comic-Con, why not wear it to our Opening Night Partyparty, and possibly win a prize? For more details, contact Pam at

He and his family are also currently in negotiations with TV Land for a new Reality TV project - The Incredible Ferrigno's which will focus on "coaching" viewers on how to improve the quality of their physical and mental health. Who better than Lou Ferrigno to take on this "Incredible" task. Be sure to stay tuned for the launch of both projects!
In recent news, Lou was a guest on The Tonight Show hosted by his long-time friend and colleague, Jay Leno. You can catch a clip of the Interview on YouTube. Lou has also recently been doing Voice Overs for cartoon characters on The Cartoon Network.
The Summer of 2009 presented a personal challenge for Lou when his long-time friend, Pop legend Michael Jackson, for whom he was a personal trainer over the past 15 years, suddenly passed away stunning both Lou and the entire World. In honor of Michael, Lou made over two-dozen television appearances, including Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The ABC Morning Show and Anderson Cooper. In recognition, Lou was credited on the recently released Michael Jackson movie "This Is It".
In 2009, Lou played a wonderful supporting role in the DreamWorks romantic comedy "I Love You, Man" which was directed by John Hamburg (Zoolander, Along Came Poly, Meet the Parents, Meet the Fockers), with a cast that includes Paul Rudd, Jason Segel and Rashida Jones. The DVD was released just a few months ago, in August, 2009.
Shortly before that Lou also appeared in, and did the voice of The Hulk, in Superhero blockbuster feature films, The Incredible Hulk, directed by Louis Leterrier, with a cast that included Edward Norton, Liv Tyler, Tim Roth, William Hurt, and Robert Downey Jr. That was, of course, the squeal to the blockbuster hit feature film Hulk, directed by Ang Lee where Lou, at the request of the filmmakers, made an honorary Cameo Appearance. He also provides the voice for the UPN animated series The Incredible Hulk, with a cast that includes Peter Strauss, Mark Hamill, Kathy Ireland, and Richard Moll.
Lou also enjoyed his Recurring Guest Star role on King of Queens, where he frequently appeared up through the shows successful 9th Season, on CBS Television Network.
Also just prior, Lou Guest Starred on the ABC Television sitcom My Wife and Kids, became the spokesman for the Sit Up-Sit Down Home Gym, and was the lead in the debut video for the band "Edgewater" for MTV.
Lou also headed first to Italy where he shot two commercials used in the International market where he has a huge fan base, and to the East coast to shoot two Longhorn Steakhouse commercials, one of which was rated as the No. 3 top commercial of the year by "Shoot Magazine."
Over the past several years Lou completed an extensive physical and academic training program and became a "Deputy" for the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department. At the induction ceremony, Los Angeles Sheriff Lee Baca introduced Lou, who spoke publicly before a packed house of other Deputy Sheriffs, their families, friends and press who were present to witness the formal "white glove" event.
In addition, Lou is regularly invited by universities, corporate executives, and numerous other major event holders to give motivational and inspiring speeches all over the world.
In addition to his film and television career, Lou recently released his autobiography, "My Incredible Life as the Hulk," which included forwards by both Stan Lee and Ang Lee.
Lou was only 21 when he won his first Mr. Universe title, a Guinness Book record that stands to this day. More incredible, at age 22 he won again - and to this day remains the only person to win consecutive titles! Lou carried the world of bodybuilding to new heights and himself to superstardom with the film documentary, Pumping Iron, which chronicled the fabled exploits of the youngest and only person to ever become Mr. Universe twice in a row! Exploding onto the film scene, with his place as a body building legend secured, Lou set out to do the same thing in film and television. In less than a year after Pumping Iron, Lou was again larger than life and created a new cult legend as the title character of the hit show The Incredible Hulk. The same hard work that crafted his six foot five inch, two hundred eighty five pound frame into a piece of human art, define him as an actor with the uncanny ability to assume characters of mythic proportions that carry a primal humanity.
Undoubtedly the discipline and resiliency that have made Lou into a bodybuilding icon lend themselves to his willingness to train as a serious theatrical actor. Lou immersed himself in the actor's theatrical experience with the help of his acting mentors, Milton Katselas, Howard Fine, and Hulk co-star Bill Bixby. The results were great theatrical notices in Texas, Canada, and Chicago (at Drury Lane Theater), for his starring role in "Arsenic and Old Lace," and starring roles in ambitious stage presentations of "Requiem for a Heavyweight" and "Of Mice and Men" - shows that toured throughout the U.S. and Canada. Lou's passionate pursuit of excellence has brought this Brooklyn-born actor more than fame and fortune; it has brought him the joy of fulfilling his life-long dreams.
Remaining true to his host of fans from the bodybuilding world, Lou starred in the sequel to Pumping Iron. And, Stand Tall is a film that documents Lou's 1994 comeback in the Masters Olympia title and his return to bodybuilding after a seventeen year retirement. Lou has starred in over twenty feature films including Cage and Cage II, All's Fair, Seven Magnificent Gladiators, and Godson. In two unforgettable performances in Hercules and The Adventures of Hercules, Lou lived a life-long dream by playing the legendary Greek hero.
All this led to an amazingly successful personal training business that includes such star clientele as Mickey Rourke, Michael Jackson, and Chuck Norris, and led him to author the book "Lou Ferrigno's Guide to Personal Power, Bodybuilding and Fitness for Everyone."
Lou continues his regular study of acting and he works out daily, all with the same passion and vigor that made him a household name and established him as one of the most sought-after entertainers in the business.

Adams rescued Batman from the campy TV show, and transformed him into his present, "Avenger of the Night" persona. When people say 'modern Batman,' they mean Neal Adams' Batman. His run led directly to the realistic incarnation seen in "Batman Returns", and the "The Dark Knight" movies. His most recent projects include Batman Odyssey, The First X-Men, and his own character "Blood" for Dark Horse Comics.

"My art is my escape from the trials of reality and life. Art is my addiction; with every stroke of a colored pencil I am able to release stress and confusion. I have been drawing, as an old art teacher would say, since I could hold a pencil. I experiment with various kinds of art media; however, the media I enjoy most is colored pencils. I have recently begun to experiment in scratch board, something that I am beginning to enjoy very much! Many of my pieces are heavily influenced by Anime, or Japanese style animation. I am inspired and infatuated with the Japanese culture and it tends to show through my pieces. I try to express my love of Japan along with my respect and love of my own culture through the drawings I create. The fact that my family and friends give me the support and in some cases, challenge that I need to succeed, pushes me forward and motivates me to never give up on anything, especially not my dream of becoming a well renowned artist."

Artist/writer/creator Michael Golden, is a legend in the comic book industry, but one that has never stopped adding to his legacy as a storytelling professional. Co-creator of the X-men's Rogue character, Spartan X and Bucky O'Hare, Michael is known worldwide for his groundbreaking work on "The 'Nam," "Micronauts," "G.I. Joe Yearbook," and "Dr. Strange, " among MUCH more, and is counted as one of the best cover designers and illustrators in the business.
Golden's work can be seen on covers from "Spawn," "Nightwing", "Iron Man", "Heroes for Hire", "Exiles," "Demon's Regret," "Spiderman," "Vampirella," "Captain American," "The Punisher" to "The Hulk," as well as numerous other titles, for about every company out there.
It's no wonder that Golden has been one of the most influential creators around for the last several decades:
"….unless you can actually draw yourself, it is very difficult to understand the exact mind-blowing impossibility of what he does," said writer/artist Larry Hama, of Golden's work.
"Michael blithely puts down on paper exactly what he sees in his head. It's like he's got a cosmic opaque projector that shoots a laser beam from his brain through the kundalini eye in his forehead straight down onto the drawing surface where all he has to do is trace it," continues Hama. "The result is hard-edged and fully realized in every way. No fuzzy impressions here. No using the side of the pencil. No squiggly space-filling lines blocked in on automatic pilot. To paraphrase Neal Adams (who was referring to Golden), there is not a single millimeter of line on the page that is not directed by conscious thought."
Recent books covering the colorful life and amazing art of Michael Golden include a Manga version of the "Bucky O'Hare" series, as well as the top selling art retrospective "Excess: The Art of Michael Golden," written by Renee Witterstaetter, which sold out and has gone into a second printing, as well as his recent sketchbooks "Heroes and Villains," "MORE Heroes and Villains, " and "Michael Golden: Alchemy."
His upcoming book is entitled: "Michael Golden: Dangerous Curves."
Michael has served as an Editor at DC Comics as well as Senior Art Director at Marvel Comics, and has worked on scores of movie production projects, some currently in development. His art has been the focus of gallery shows in places as diverse as Gijon, Barcelona, New York, Antwerp and Brussels, while his class on storytelling has been conducted from Spain to Brussels to France to Canada to the United States... and most recently China.
He has recently been awarded with Lifetime Achievement Awards from The University of Maryland Eastern Shore and the Lille Arts Festival. with gallery shows of his work in Spain, New York, Maryland and Moscow.
James O'Barr, is the award-winning creator of "The Crow," and writer of two hit series currently from IDW Publishing, entitled "Curare" and "Skinning The Wolves."
He likes to lament that he was born in a trailer in Detroit just in time to see Marilyn Monroe and John Kennedy die, but claims no responsibility for either. He spent his first seven years in an orphanage and foster care where he spent most of his time drawing.
When he was adopted he brought along his crayons and has been using them ever since.
While stationed in Berlin, in the late 70's he created The Crow as an attempt to deal with the death of his fiance at the hands of a drunk driver. It took nearly ten years to finish and no publisher was interested in it("too gloomy,too confusing..") until,on a whim, Caliber published the first issue in 1989.
It is currently the best selling independent graphic novel of all time at over 1 million copies sold. In 1993 his book was adapted into the cult film of the same name starring Brandon Lee. He would like you to know that nearly all of the money made from the film was donated to children's charities and he had nothing to do with the subsequent 3 sequels or TV show, but he will be a consultant on the new Crow movie that goes into production in 2014.
He has worked for every major publisher. In Italy,1995, he won the Academy Award of comics,the Yellow Kid award for best storyteller.
Recently returned from a record breaking signing tour for the Italian Edition of "The Crow," his most recent book is a the new sketchbook from Eva Ink Publishing "James O'Barr: Uncoffined."
