Hello there Nanci
Maybe we’ll cross paths somewhere else one day.

Hello John B.
It’ll be a blast I’m sure.

Oh, sounds like an awesome event! Please take some photos and post for those of us who can’t make it!

Dare I ask which DC batwoman prints? And where can I purchase those?!??

Hey there Pam
Hopefully there will be plenty of photos. I think there might be video taken. The prints were done awhile back as a store signing exclusive, and were never for sale, just a very limited promotional thing for the local store here. They’re from covers to the Detective Comics run.

Oh, no, do not use the words “very limited” and “promotional” and then tell me I can’t get copies!! Oh, what a cruel world!!!

I’ll see what I can do…

Cool. You know, I’m kind of out here in the boondocks of Texas and I’d give anything to have a cool comic-book shop anywhere near me. Red Sky looks like a little slice of heaven to me.

Hey there Pam
Yeah, they’ve only been open just over a year or so. They’re still trying their best while feeling their way around to what works best for them.

Will you be selling any prints, or are the only prints available the ones that come with the 20 tickets?

Comment by Raven 06.09.12 @ 2:18 pm

Hello Raven
The only prints are directly from the shop event. And are not being sold, but rather given away I believe with raffle tickets for prizes. You can alway try contacting the shop and see how they’re handling things. But I think the sets are being given away with all tickets, but I could be wrong on that. The press release states three levels of ticket quantity and pricing, with the top price being $20 for 7 tickets. Refer to the press release again. Also proceeds are going to charity.
