Yesterday (11-28-12) I had the opportunity to attend a signing party of the release of FF #1 from Marvel, written by Matt Fraction Drawn by Mike Allred and colored by Laura Allred at our local comic book shop here in Eugene OR, Nostalgia Collectibles. It was a rare opportunity to have comics creators in our town doing a public event and it was a great time. I was able to talk a bit with Mr. Fraction & Jamie S. Rich who was also in attendance for signings and meet and greets.
Karaoke took over the store as people got their comics signed and met with the creators. Mike Allred is one part artist, one part rock star and one part ringmaster. My time was short at the party, our son had reached his limit after about an hour in attendance, but I was happy to get to see these creators again and get some items signed from them, they are all such nice people and a real treat to get to see. Hopefully we will have more events like this here in the future!
