The Fix is In
Forgot to post this earlier, but if you’re looking for something fun to do tonight, and you want to support an amazing independent local business, head out to Berkeley, to Comic relief.
Comic Relief has been a mecca for comics fans and comics creators. Rory Root has supported small press and indie DIY comics, and been an amazing resource to the comics community for years, and his store is arguably the best in the whole Bay Area.
Unfortunately, they are being evicted from their current premises on University Ave. To help support their move, Comic Icon Warren Ellis will be doing a signing from 5-7 pm tonight at the shop.
There is no cover and no cost, just the opportunity to revel in a store that has won countless awards and been part of Comics history for almost 20 years. Sequential Tart Marcia Allass sums it up beautifully:
Comic Relief is within blocks from a BART station, and there’s tons of bars and amazing restaurants within walking distance, as well.
Where: Comic Relief, 2138 University Ave.
When: Warren Ellis signs from 5-7 pm, but store hours run until 9 pm.
Why: Help support Comic Relief as they prepare for their impending eviction and imminent move to a new location.
