Holiday Party / Art Show / Fundraiser / Sale at CNJComics

Here’s all the information on this year’s Holiday Party / Sale / Art Show / Fundraiser for the Greater Cleveland Food Bank! This year’s art show theme is … Marvel Vs DC! Let’s talk about the art show first! We’ve been holding our Holiday Art Show since 2012, even moving it successfully online during the pandemic. It’s always better in person though, and we’re grateful that we’re able to host it that way again. Last year we combined things things we learned during the pandemic with our old in-person model and had our most successful year ever. With your help, we assisted the Greater Cleveland Food Bank (the true heroes in this story) in creating 24,900 meals. This brings our lifetime total to 140,608 meals created. We measure the success of our event through meals created, with the knowledge that the Food Bank can turn one dollar into four full meals for those in need. (However, because of the current state of the economy, that one dollar now makes three full meals, so our help is needed now more than...

Andrea’s Invasive Picks for 12.13.23

Happy Holiday Party week, Comic Shop Friends! John’s getting Christmas all over the store as I write this week’s email, and we’re getting things ready for everything coming up! Starting Wednesday the 13th through our Holiday Party on Saturday the 16th, the Art Show submissions will be on display in the foyer, and you can start to purchase raffle tickets on Wednesday. We’ll draw the winners at 10:30pm during the Holiday Party. Tickets are 1 for $1, or 6 for $5, and all proceeds go to the Cleveland Food Bank! There are so many great covers this year (I’ve already got my eye on a few), and once again we’ve run out of room on the display walls, so there will be a binder with even more art! We will also be raffling off this painting of the Superman House done by Jeff Suntala. After the raffle for the covers is finished, we’ll throw all the tickets together and pull a winner from those that are present. Thank you to Jeff for donating this! We also have a couple of...

Andrea’s Silent Knight Picks for 12.06.23

Hey there, Comic Shop Friends! I hope you’re all working on your covers for our Holiday Art Show! I just came up with an idea, so you’ll be seeing one from me this year. There’s a bunch of fun stuff this month: A reminder that if you’re doing a cover for the Art Show, you do need to turn it in by 5pm on Sunday the 10th. This gives us time to frame and label them before they are displayed starting Wednesday the 13th. You can still pick up a blank cover, and this year’s theme is Marvel Vs DC, feel free to interpret that however you’d like! For example, we have a chess match cover turned in, and have heard ideas about a bake sale, and a game of rock, paper, scissors. Here’s a submission from Kyle Goers. You can find her on Facebook and Instagram as @RubyRoadrash. Starting on the 13th through our Holiday Party on the 16th, you can purchase raffle tickets for $1 each, and every dollar that is donated goes to the Cleveland Food Bank!...
