Play – Charity Comics Launch Party April 23

Some good people over at Do You Want to Kiss it Better? have produced a comic anthology to support the War Child Charity. In good comicking fashion, they are having a launch party this coming April 23 at the Coup Salon, 524 Shanghai Alley in Vancouver. The festivities start at 8PM and go late.

Our suave webmaster and comicker extraordinare Kevin Forbes has generously contributed a strip for the anthology, so Cloudscape will try to get out in force to support his efforts! We hope you’ll have a chance to go and support a great cause as well.

Happy Comicking!
