Jerry’s Artarama Sponsors “Molly Danger” Comic Book Launch Party

National Arts Retailer Supports Veteran Comic Book Artist Jamal Igle.

Raleigh, NC, September 20, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Jerry’s Artarama, a national retailer of art supplies and materials headquartered in Raleigh, is supporting the creative mission of comic book artist Jamal Igle and his series called “Molly Danger.” Jerry’s Artarama will be sponsoring the “Molly Danger” launch party and book signing on Saturday, Oct. 12 following the New York Comic Con at JHU Comic Books located at 32 East 32nd St. in Manhattan.

Launch party proceeds will benefit the Hero Initiative, a nonprofit organization providing a financial safety net for comic creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for the essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. Co-sponsors of the event include Strathmore and Artograph.

“Molly Danger” is the story of the world’s most powerful 10-year-old girl who is a seemingly immortal, strong superhero protecting the town of Coopersville for the last 20 years. The book is a hardcover, European format graphic album series scheduled to be published in early October. To help fund his project, Igle created a Kickstarter project to cover the costs of producing, printing and shipping. Money raised through Ingle’s Kickstarter endeavors will also be used to hire professional talent to assist in fleshing out future “Molly Danger” series. Through his Kickstarter project, Igle surpassed his goal of $45,000, raising a total of $50,329.

Igle is an award-winning artist and writer and a 22-year veteran of the comic book industry. His clients include Marvel Comics, Walt Disney Inc., Sony Television and many others. To learn more about Jamal Igle and the “Molly Danger” series, visit his Kickstarter page: http://kck.st/M3nOhA.
