Los Angeles, CA, (June 1, 2009): Hero Initiative and Meltdown Comics
are pleased to announce 100 Bullets: Last Shot, the farewell party to the
critically acclaimed Vertigo/DC Comics series 100 Bullets on July 11th, 2009.
The party will take place at 7:30 PM at Meltdown Comics, 7522 Sunset Blvd. in
Los Angeles, CA. Tickets to the party are available now at
The event coincides with the release of
the final 100 Bullets paperback, Wilt. Copies will be available
for sale at the event; with a limited edition tip-in plate signed by writer
Brian Azzarello and cover artist Dave Johnson.
Azzarello is making the
trip from Chicago to L.A. for the party, and the goodbye will be handled in true
Chicago speakeasy style. A pianist and torch singer will entertain, as cocktails
flow in custom-etched 100 Bullets shot glasses. A gallery of art from Johnson
and series artist Eduardo Risso will line the walls, with select pieces
auctioned off to benefit Hero Initiative, the charity dedicated to helping older
comic creators in medical or financial need. A Q-and-A session with the creators
is also planned as part of the night’s festivities.
A mere 75 VIP tickets
are available at $150 per. VIP ticket holders will enjoy food, an open bar,
guaranteed seating for the Q-and-A and auction, valet parking, a custom 100
Bullets shot glass, commemorative T-shirt, and more.
In addition, 35
standing-room-only tickets will be made available at $50 each, which will
include food and bar.
100 Bullets: Last Shot is made possible via a
generous contribution from Valve Software, an entertainment software and
technology based in Bellevue, WA. The company’s debut title, Half-Life®, has won
over 50 “Game of the Year” awards, and was named "Best PC Game Ever.”
Food and beverage are provided by Asahi, Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, Coca-Cola, and
Jaguar Vodka produced by Prestige Imports. Comic publisher Top Cow Productions
of Los Angeles, CA is also a contributing sponsor.
