Husband is just

the coolest guy. He gets to work on a project with Mike Richardson!!!

(excuse the frog queen as she geeks out here for a moment :D )

So, when we are not spending all our time working the Halloween thing, he is chairman of the Milwaukie Art Committee here is our small town of Milwaukie. Which almost no one has ever heard of, unless you are a comic book collector....then you know exactly where we are. :)

Milwaukie's claim to fame is that it is the home of Dark Horse Comics. (Recently paired up with Bruce Campbell for the "My Name is Bruce" movie) Mike Richardson is the founder and is originally from Milwaukie, so he created the world headquarters of Dark Horse comics in Milwaukie.

Mike has been in the business forever and knows everyone, in this time he has managed to amass a very large collection of comic book art. How cool huh? And cooler still he has agreed to allow the art committee (ArtMOB) to host a show of his collection "Hometown Superhero" with the proceeds going to the committee.

Seriously nice guy!

The show is the 18th - 23rd of June with a special VIP night on Saturday (get your tickets here). Mike will give talk about his career and then provide a personal tour of his collection. There will be music and wine and cheese (from our favorite wine place Wine:30) and the opportunity to meet Mike and let him know how wonderful you think he is....well at least I will :)

Looking forward to this event...but it is keeping us both a bit hang on - I will be back to blogging soon!

If you are in the area, buy tickets for the VIP night, Husband I and will be there!
