In other news, we have been adding thousands more comics into the huge new $1 selections that
we are building within
all three of our stores.
This is becoming a very big deal, as we have
seen unprecedented traffic in this area over the past four weeks, so we are all working
diligently to expand these selections for you as quickly as possible. I snapped four quick
photos this morning of a few dozen issues that I selected for
$1 bins just last evening. The
comics are lower grade, but remain as remarkable bargains at just $1 each...

Another bit of news that I think will please you is at we have reached a deal with
Sam De Larosa
to appear at
during this year's Free Comic Book Day celebration on May 6th. Sam will be signing autographs
(for a $5 fee...) and also offering original art for sale. Sam will be waiving a portion of his fee
however, for contributors to our charity of the day,
"Feeding Denver's Hungry."
More details will be released as we get closer to the date.

I am going to close today's newsletter with another charity appeal, this time involving the
specific needs of women who find themselves homeless. As you are probably already aware,
Imperial Court of the Rocky Mountain Empire Empress
43, Norrie Reynolds, has been working tirelessly to help to feed the poor, disabled and
elderly people served by
St. Francis center.
Norrie, brainstorming with
Feeding Denver's Hungry
leader, Kristina Fellows, came up with the idea that we should create a special day where we focus
on the specific needs of the dozens of women who avail themselves of our services each week. They
worked with the other female volunteers of
"Feeding Denver's Hungry,"
and came up with the following list of critically needed items:

CALLING ALL GIRLS!
It's our time to shine and step up to the plate. Lately we've seen far too many women on the
streets in desperate need of hygiene and girly thing's soooooo, the women of
"Feeding Denver's Hungry"
thought it was time to get our girly on. We are doing a girly donations drive, and here's
what we need...
Personal Hygiene Products
Small cream rinse
Small body lotion
Also, new or gently used clothing such as:
If you have any items to donate please drop them off at
any Mile High Comics location,
and we will get those items picked up, and distributed to women and girls in need. Thank you in
advance to all you beautiful ladies out there changing the life of one Soul one day at a time.
Women on the streets...
I will close by personally thanking everyone who has helped in our efforts here at
Mile High Comics
to make life just a little less terrible for those who find themselves homeless in Denver. If you could
but hear the sincere thanks and gratitude of those we serve, your heart would be filled with joy. Working
together we are not saving the entire world, but we sure are making life a little better for a lucky few.
