Dillon in Philly

The Old City branch of my comic book store, Brave New Worlds, will be hosting artist Steve Dillon tonight from 6 to 9 p.m. Dillon — artist on little projects like Preacher, Hellblazer, Wolverine: Origins and Punisher — will be signing and doing $15 head sketches to raise funds for the ComicsPRO retailer organization. Which I assume look something like the below:

Dillon pretty much rules, so I'm going to try and make it out. You might want to as well.

UPDATE: Money was actually being raised for The Hero Initiative, and Dillon was appearing at stores that are a part of ComicsPro, which makes more sense.

Anyway, Steve Dillon was a cool guy who sketched well past posted hours and explained what a "spacker" was, George treated to drinks, and fun was had by all despite a parking ticket for me (never a doubt) and some bad karaoke we were all submitted to in an otherwise pretty cool bar.

Then again, as Dillon pointed out, awful karaoke is probably more entertaining than good karaoke.
