Press release from the Comic Book Alliance:
SPECIAL SALES TABLES RELEASED TO RAISE MONEY FOR COMIC BOOK ALLIANCE
To raise money for an incredibly worthwhile cause Kapow! Comic Con has released 25 special sales tables at the show on 9th and 10th April 2011. This amazing offer has been exclusively created to raise funds for the Comic Book Alliance (CBA).
With a minimum suggested donation per table this is every aspiring creator and small press publishers chance to get their comics out to a waiting audience, and perhaps get that big break. Tim Pilcher, Chair of the CBA said, “We are deeply grateful to the Kapow! team for donating these tables, and the money they’ll raise for the Comic Book Alliance. Now, even those with limited resources have the opportunity to take part in one of the most exciting conventions happening this year. While there is a minimum donation we sincerely hope that creators will be generous and able to contribute more, so that the CBA will be able to continue supporting the British Comics industry.”
The tables are limited to one per small press publisher/creator and come with two chairs and one weekend pass (an extra pass is available for an additional fee). But the booking deadline is soon! Creators must contact the CBA and make their donations before Friday 18th March. To find out more details and to request a booking form email: firstname.lastname@example.org
