In recent years I’ve been found at his store on Free Comic Book Day in a duel commitment with him early in the day and a commute to
New England Comics: New Bedford for later in the day with my sometimes art partner Mike Lilly. But this year, FCBD was on Saturday
May 4 when I was scheduled at the Undiscovered Realm Comic Con May 4-5. So to make up for that (and to cover some swag I’d ordered there)
Ernie has devoted Saturday July 20 to “Bob Almond Day at FNC” from 11am – 3pm! A first of sorts, I will have all my usual Bob Almond-themed goods
in tow like original signed art, Black Panther trades and prints signed by me and, while suplies last, also by my legendary cohorts Sal Velluto and
at least 4 pencil sketches on backer boards to ink at the store upon request for $40 each deposited up front. If I sell all 4 or more and can’t
finish in time at the event I will take them home to finish ahead of my commissions list for a meager shipping expense. Autographs are always
free with me and I only ask if the customer/fan can donate anything to my 501(c)(3) non-profit Inkwell Awards donation box on the table.
Besides my recent Angel Medina drawn and Tom Chu colored Thanos & Mistress Death new print I’d inked, I will be debuting my Art Adams drawn
and Chu colored X-Men: Days of Future Past print I inked. So drop by and take advantage of simultaneous deals from the store itself!
