AMBER LOVE 11-SEP-2014 The plans for this year’s charity event are coming along. So much had to change this year because of conflicting schedules and life changes. First, the best news is that our comic shop volunteer base has grown and we have a wonderful team of comic lovers that have put in a lot time brainstorming, planning, shopping, gathering art from conventions and even reviewing donated comics. Gareth, James, Kevin, Kate, Ally, Jesse, Nick, and all the contributors – thank you so much from me, Stacy and Bill. We couldn’t make the weekend what it is without all the additional help.

Secondly, thank you to all the people that chipped in for the crowdsourcing so I could purchase the USB drives! The timing was unfortunate that I just lost my job and could not follow through with matching all the pledges but with the crowdsourced funds, I was able to get us a set of custom Comic Fusion Superhero Weekend drives from Vista Print.

Now, to continue thanking the publishers and the creators that have helped us launched a way to incorporate digital books for the first time, here are the titles and names we’d love for you to look up and follow. Discover their work and show your appreciation.

Finally, I will try to do everything I can to promote the folks that donated physical art and swag and for our in-store guests because having the items to auction and raffle is what started this epic adventure eight years ago. Look for that on Twitter @ComicFusion and @elizabethamber.
