WiK and The Kirby Museum Attending Hawthorne Comic Con

May 6, 2011
Hawthorne Comic Con

Rand Hoppe of the Jack Kirby Museum and me, Tom Kraft of What if Kirby will attend next weekend's Hawthorne Comic Con. The museum will have a booth and we plan to bring a scanner in case there is any Kirby art to achieve. If you're in the area and plan to attend, and have Kirby art for archiving, please bring it along. Joe Sinnott (tentively), Dick Ayers and Herb Trimpe are among the planned guests to the show. Entry fee is only $4.00.
