Premier Comics '07

Mike Roden

I just wanted to take a minute and let you know that fellow Ohioan and veteran small presser Mike Roden is having some serious health problems and a benefit is being organized to aid him.  Here's a link with info:
Matt Dembicki is trying to get together some items on his table for a raffle / silent
auction at SPACE this year to aid in the benefit.  
Mike's been involved in small press since the 1970's.
Matt will be holding a silent auction/raffle to benefit Mike.  He would like to
have donations of comics or original art.  Please let him know if you can donate
anything by April 1.  His e-mail is
Anything you can do to aid this effort would be GREATLY appreciated.

At the show please drop by the benefit table (near the Admission table) and bid on items and buy some raffle tickets. Thanks.
 Check out some of the great stuff up for auction right HERE
