What did you do on Free Comic Book day last weekend? Maryville, Pennslyvania residents had some fun when Dick Tracy artist Joe Staton and fellow artists Tom Nguyen and Robyn McCammon visited The Golden Age, 1942, a former radio station transformed into brightly red, yellow and blue comic book store. Having itself opened on a Free Comic Book Day two years ago, the Maryville store celebrated the the annual event as both a holiday and an anniversary.
Turn out was great, and freedom limited for the guests of honor but Chuck Sayne still had an opportunity to sit down and talk with Joe. (Ok, they are standing I guess). Check out the conversation in the above video and stay tuned for part two which I’ll append when it becomes available.
Edit: Now available
In addition The Golden Age is hosting a charity auction for the Tennessee Alzheimer’s Association on their Facebook page, including a Golden Age Justice Society art print signed by Staton. Check out everything up for auction here, The Golden Age can ship to the winner so make a bid if you are interested! (Auction Closed May 12th)
