Park Circle Comics' 'Taking Flight Comic Book Show' returns for round 10 on Saturday, July 18
7/10/2015 5:59:11 PM

Park Circle Comics’ Taking Flight Comic Book Show 10 will be on Saturday, July, 18 from Noon – 5:00 PM at The Sparrow at 1078 East Montague in the historic Park Circle business district.

The show will feature a number of talented artists including: Albert Captain from Apartment A Comics; Mia Chavi Jenkins- MuCulley from MiaChavi Geekery; James A. McCulley showing original sketches; and artists from Run Riot Media including writer Hart Jeffers, artist Tony Mingacci, and spiritual leader, whip cracker and letterer Steve Stegelin. They will be showing off their new comic, SOL. SOL is the story of odd couple Jane and Helen and their adventures becoming people in the 22nd century world that wants to kill them.

A donation of $5 is suggested at the door and as in the past all donations will benefit a local charity. This show will benefit the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston. Holy City Brewing will also be donating a select keg of beer that all sales will also go to the charity. Sponsor charities at previous shows were the beneficiaries of nearly $6,500 in donations. Wonderful organizations that were supported at past events include the Alzheimer’s Foundation, Communities in Schools, Toys for Tots, the Chicora Community Garden, Fresh Future Farm, Engaging Creative Minds and Wings for Kids. Charitable support will continue to be a part of each event as will our practice of donating 100% of our entry fees to a deserving charity.

Park Circle Comics in conjunction with The Sparrow began the Taking Flight comic book shows in July of 2013. Since then, nine successful Taking Flight shows have brought local and regional artists together with fans to have a great time talking about something they all have a passion for, comic books and comic book art. The Taking Flight series of comic book shows have been a tremendous success and the attendance continues to grow for each event.

Plans for the rest of 2015 include continuing to bring fans and artists together with our Taking Flight Comic Shows, which will always have at their core, guest artists and a venue for fans to interact with each other in a family friendly and fun atmosphere. Currently ways to expand these events to add costuming (known as cosplay,) larger art exhibitions and seminars and lectures are being explored.
