Dan Brereton Highlights Guest for FlyCo Mini Indie-Con

Flying Colors to Host Local Comics Artists
3rd Annual FlyCo Mini Indie-Con Showcases Bay Area Talent, Benefits Charity

Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff presents the third annual  "FlyCo Mini Indie-Con" a showcase of local independent comic book artists and writers on Saturday August 26 from 11AM-4PM at 2980 Treat Boulevard in Concord.

Featured guests are:
Daniel Brereton, award-winning artist/writer of Nocturnals: Sinister Path and Giantkiller (set on Mount Diablo!)
Ben Ferrari, artist, writer and publisher of Clayton's Pilot Studios
Robert Stewart of Concord (Afterburner Comics)
Matt Harding, Contra Costa resident and creator of Pop Apocalypse and publisher of Not Forgotten: The Best Anthology of Public Domain Super-Heroes
Sarah Leuver, Bay Area based cartoonist/creator of A.K.A.
All attending artists will have their work available for purchase at the event.

In addition, the event will commemorate the legacy of the late Jack Kirby, historically comics' most important creator. Kirby was the creator and co-creator of hundreds of comic book characters (Captain America, X-Men, Fantastic Four, Avengers, Thor, Hulk, New Gods, Mister Miracle, etc.) in a career that lasted from the mid-1930s until his passing in 1994. 2017 marks the centennial of Jack Kirby's birth and the comics' industry is marking the occasion by raising funds in a campaign called "Kirby4Heroes" to benefit The Hero Initiative, a non-profit charity that creates a financial safety net for comic creators who need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. Flying Colors will donate a portion of the day's sales to The Hero Initiative.  

"I'm thrilled to see how our third annual FlyCo Mini Indie-Con is shaping up. We love giving a spotlight to local artists to show their stuff. I know there's going to be something fun for every comics' fan at our event," said Joe Field, owner of Flying Colors Comics. "Plus, our celebration of Jack Kirby's centennial will include some delicious cake. You've got to be here to see this Kirby inspired cake before you gobble a piece."  

Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff is an award-winning, internationally recognized comics specialty shop at 2980 Treat Blvd. The store first opened in October 1988 and has been recognized as a leader in comics' specialty retailing.
