Local News - Kevin Smith Video of Mile High Comics Visit
The big news for this week is that we received a surprise visit on Tuesday from noted filmmaker,
and on Wednesday from his partner in crime,
The two of them are in Colorado for a ten-city Jay and Silent Bob tour of comedy clubs, so they each
grabbed an Uber, and popped in completely unannounced. As the
Facebook Live video
that Kevin filmed while touring the store clearly shows, he absolutely fell in love our
Jason St. location.
Kevin's video has also gone viral over the past 18 hours, with over 360,000 views. Amazing!

In other news, our annual
Jason St. Christmas gifts auction
has been moved to Christmas Eve, December 24th, starting at 11:30 AM. This huge no-minimum-bid auction
will feature nearly 1,000 old comics, toys, trade paperbacks, and collectible stocking stuffers. There
will also be a charity element to our auction, as I am still working to buy more warm clothing and food
for Denver's homeless. If you might own a collectible or comic book that no long fits in your collection,
we would be grateful to have you donate it to our auction. We will sell your item during the auction,
and use 100% of the proceeds to help those in need. Please do plan to support our December 24th
My final item for today is a few photographs from today's
Feeding Denver's Hungry
clothing giveaway in lower downtown. Over a four-hour period six of us volunteers gave away more than a
ton of donated used clothing, as well as 500 pairs of thermal socks, 400 pairs of gloves, 300 scarves,
and 300 knit hats. With the temperature predicted to drop below zero Saturday night, this warm clothing
is critical for the survival of many who are less fortunate. I sincerely thank those of you who donated
to our clothing drive. Our next clothing giveaway will be on December 29th. If you have any surplus
jackets, sweaters, etc. that you could spare, please drop them off at any
Mile High Comics location.
Handing out free gloves
Imperial Court Empress 43 Norrie Reynolds handed out 500 pairs of thermal socks
Feeding Denver's Hungry founder, Jim Scharper, and Empress 43 Norrie Reynolds, helping a young girl
who arrived in stocking feet because someone stole her shoes while she was sleeping. We had donated
boots in exactly her size!
The donated used clothes we offered were greatly appreciated!
