Its time for the Time Warp Comics 25 Year Anniversary, and owner Wayne Winsett is throwing a month-long party to celebrate. The festivities get started in earnest today with a signing by Fort Collins-based artist Nick Runge, whos working on a new Ghostbusters title and doing covers for Joss Whedons Angel series. Hell display his work, sign autographs and do sketches from 2 to 5 p.m.
Hes such a special artist that they use him [mostly] for these special covers, explains Winsett. He did one of the most amazing pieces of artwork in my collection. Hes only 24, and he definitely has a huge future.
Throughout the month, the guests and events will keep coming, including Mark and Laura Allred of Madman, Ben-10 co-creator Steve Seagle, Aliens artist Zach Howard, a 25th-anniversary auction, trivia nights, sales, and a customer-appreciation barbecue with a band. Its going to be a big month, Winsett promises. To cap it off, Eisner-award winning writer Bill Willingham of Fables will visit in October.
