I posted this in this section due to David Mack doing the cover for the book... hope that's cool...

Hi! Inker Jesse Hansen here, bringing you news of the comic-book variety.

You're likely getting this e-mail because I'veeither worked with you, met you at a show and discussed comics, know you are involved with comics or I simply consider you a friend who knows a little somethin' about good comics. Potentially all of the above.

I'm pleased to announce that Ronin Studios' HOPE: NEW ORLEANS -- a nearly 200-page comic book anthology benefiting the Red Cross' Hurricane Katrina relief effort -- will debut with a special edition at the big Wizard World Chicago comic-book convention in Rosemont on Aug. 3-6.

I am honored to be a part of this endeavor to help those in need and profess to have inked, grayscaled a story as well as being the Asst. Editor and Art Director for the book. It has been my honor and I hope you like the results of our labor of love.

Featuring cover artwork by David Mack, the book has more than 30 short stories by more than 80 creators. All have hurricane or Gulf Coast themes.

The WWC edition will have a cover price of just 10 bucks and will be available at the Ronin tables at Wizard World (#3072-3076 in Artists Alley). Signings and other events are in the works, too.

A regular release for comics shops is planned for the fall. It's debuting at the convention because the first anniversary of the storm is nearly upon us, and we figure Katrina will be on people's minds thanks to the ever-present media and the pending onsalught of ONE YEAR SINCE KATRINA stories.

We're all very proud of the book, and we hope sales will be strong enough to really help the people on the Gulf Coast. If you're coming to Wizard World, please consider stopping by the table and picking up a copy. If not, keep an eye at your local shop this fall.
