Ale Fit for A King to Benefit The Hero Initiative

Label_kirby_printShmaltz Brewery in Clifton Park, NY will host a fundraiser birthday party on Thursday, August 28th, 2014 to celebrate the late Jack “The King” Kirby’s birthday. Kirby is considered by many to be the co-creator (along with Stan Lee) of the Marvel Comics Universe. Kirby co-created many of the superheroes being adored by fans of Marvel’s recent blockbuster movies, including the Avengers, the Hulk, Captain America, Thor, the Fantastic Four and many more.

A group of local comic professionals approached Shmaltz about doing an event, with proceeds to be donated in Jack Kirby’s honor to Hero Initiative, a non-profit organization that helps comic creators in need. Shmaltz stepped up in a big way, creating a limited-edition, Kirby-labeled ale exclusively for the party. King Kirby Ale will make its debut at the event, and a limited number of cases will be available for purchase. With a special edition label designed and drawn by Clifton Park artist Paul Harding, the ale will be available in both Pale and Dark varieties.

The Aug. 28 event will run from 4 to 8 p.m., and feature an impressive array of comic professionals, including Green Lantern and Silver Surfer writer Ron Marz, sculptor Paul Harding, X-Men artist Tom Raney, Conan and Spider-Man writer Fred Van Lente, writer Crystal Skillman and many others, who will be signing and sketching for donations to Hero Initiative. Van Lente and Skillman are the co-authors of the recent play “King Kirby,” about Jack Kirby’s life, which enjoyed a successful, well-reviewed run in New York City. Fans attending the party will be able to get autographs and sketches from the comic pros, and enjoy a beer tasting as well as a piece of special Jack Kirby birthday cake. Live music will be provided by Saratoga-based rock ensemble Sugar Pill, led by John Stack on guitar and vocals. Party tickets are $20, with proceeds donated to Hero Initiative. Door prizes have been donated by Comic Depot of Saratoga Springs, and Excellent Adventures Comics of Ballston Spa.

Tickets for the event are available online.

Red Giant Offers 4 Books on Free Comic Book Day!

Red Giant is offering four books this upcoming annual Free Comic Book Day, on May 3, 2014.

GIANT-SIZE FANTASY

Pandora’s Blog – When a young girl moves to a new town, she blogs about the strange things she sees, and gets some unwanted attention as a result.

ADVENTURE

Magika – A young boy discovers a magical world filled with strange mystical creatures who come into our world through a mound in his grandparents’ backyard.
The First Daughter –  The President’s daughter learns her destiny when she is pulled into a secret, supernatural enclave beneath the White House.

THRILLS

The Giant-Size line, scheduled to launch July 2014 as an on-going weekly event from Red Giant, which will produce 1 million free books every Wednesday, to help build traffic and readership for the industry. Red Giant not only benefits from the advertising revenue this venture generates, but also the awareness it builds for its properties and a stronger, healthier marketplace for the entire comics industry.
