Collector’s Paradise has been setting the standard for comic book shops in Southern California for 20 years opening up their doors in September 1994. Now with two locations Collector’s Paradise hosts a wide range of great promotions and events from Free Comic Book May! to comic book launch parties featuring talents from all publishers. Now to honor their first two decades they are giving even more to their customers and are going to lure a few new ones to their stores. The celebration runs from September 6 to September 30 and will feature legendary comic book creators Marc Silvestri and George Perez.
The festivities start on Saturday September 6 with Top Cow Productions and Image Comics founder and legendary comic artist and writer Silvestri signing at the Winnetka store from 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. There will be a raffle for two sketches from the artist who became famous drawing “Uncanny X-Men” and “Wolverine” and then rocked the comic world when he introduced “Cyber Force” and his newest book “Rise of the Magi.” To enter the free sketch raffle all you need to do is purchase $20 in Image or Top Cow graphic novels which is easy to do with Collector’s Paradise’s well-stocked shelves.
The next major signing is a Hero Initiative Event with Perez on September 17 from 6 p.m. – 9 p.m. at the Winnetka store. The artist and writer known for his work on “Wonder Woman,” “Avengers,” and “New Teen Titans” will be releasing his new book through BOOM! Studios “Sirens.” The appearance at Collector’s Paradise is the first stop in the “Sirens” launch tour and there will be an exclusive edition for the first issue limited to 500 copies available at the signing. Appearing with Perez will be Diana Knight who appears on the exclusive cover.
Both stores, Winnetka and Pasadena, will have incredible sales with a new one each week of the month.
