Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) September 19, 2013
Jerry’s Artarama, a national retailer of art supplies and materials headquartered in Raleigh, is supporting the creative mission of comic book artist Jamal Igle and his series called “Molly Danger.” Jerry’s Artarama will be sponsoring the “Molly Danger” launch party and book signing on Saturday, Oct. 12 following the New York Comic Con at JHU Comic Books located at 32 East 32nd St. in Manhattan. Jerry's Artarama online division is the lead sponsor for the launch party. Co-sponsors of the event are Strathmore Artist Papers and Artograph which makes projectors and light boxes.
The Molly Molly Danger Book One launch party is planned for Saturday October 12th, 2013 from 9pm-12pm at JHU Comic books in New York City. The launch party is planned during New York ComicCon which takes place at the Javits Center in mid October. The V.I.P. Cocktail hour is from 7:30-9 pm along with gift bags for attendees and catering by Bassett Caterers.
Molly Molly Danger Book One launch party proceeds will benefit the Hero Initiative, a nonprofit organization providing a financial safety net for comic creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for the essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. Co-sponsors of the event include Strathmore and Artograph.
“Molly Danger” is the story of the world’s most powerful 10-year-old girl who is a seemingly immortal, strong superhero protecting the town of Coopersville for the last 20 years. The book is a hardcover, European format graphic album series scheduled to be published in early October. To help fund his project, Igle created a Kickstarter project to cover the costs of producing, printing and shipping. Money raised through Ingle’s Kickstarter endeavors will also be used to hire professional talent to assist in fleshing out future “Molly Danger” series. Through his Kickstarter project, Igle surpassed his goal of $45,000, raising a total of $50,329.
Igle is an award-winning artist and writer and a 22-year veteran of the comic book industry. His clients include Marvel Comics, Walt Disney Inc., Sony Television and many others.
