This wouldn’t be the first time that we’ve reported on Superhero Weekend, a celebration organized by the Comic Fusion shop in Flemington, NJ that’s raised more than $50,000 for its local women’s shelter, but it’s that time of year again. We thought you’d might like to know about the cosplayers, raffles, art, and prizes, with all the proceeds going to a good cause. And that’s not to mention special guests Jamal Igle, Duane Swierczynski, Dani O’Brien, and Sarah Donner.
There’s no reason that superheroes in capes can’t be relevant today. Characters have evolved over the decades to become better role models than ever before,” said Elizabeth Amber Love, event planner. “This fundraiser gets people talking about advocacy and awareness through the great support system of the comic book industry.
If you’re not in the Flemington area (and let’s face it, most of you aren’t) Superhero Weekend has a history of offering original sketches and prints in an online auction over the course of the weekend, with proceeds going to SAFE in Hunterdon, so keep an eye on their site and their Facebook page!
