ALERT: IF YOU PURCHASED COMIC STRIP PROOF SHEETS AT POWER-CON PLEASE CONTACT US IMMEDIATELY! WE NEED SCANS OF LONG-LOST COMIC STRIPS!
Danielle (Penny Dreadful) here with an impassioned request. If you purchased He-Man comic strip proofs from Chris Weber and Karen Willson at Power-Con, please contact us here at He-Man.Org (or PM me or jvs3 on the Org) as soon as possible. Chris and Karen recently found a stack of comic strip proof sheets which they mistakenly believed came from the early part of the strip's run. In truth, these proofs are actually weekday strips from the final months.
***Two of the sheets that were sold at the con contain LONG LOST comic strips that are MISSING from the recent Dark Horse Book.***
Of course, these sheets are yours to keep. We really ONLY NEED SCANS of these if they're among the lost strips. I can handle everything and compensate you for any inconvenience, plus throw in a gift for you, but if you purchased any of these please, PLEASE take a snapshot so we can check if they're missing from the Dark Horse book. The missing two weeks of strips would go from pages 501 to the top of 504 in the Dark Horse MOTU Newspaper Comic Strips book. These particular strips feature such characters as He-Man, Skeletor, Flogg, Hydron, and Lizorr.
Somebody at Power-Con purchased these over the weekend, so they ARE out there. The funds raised by the sales went to hurricane relief. Chris & Karen didn't keep any of the money, but all of the creators DO wish to have these strips found and scanned in case there's a future edition of the book.
PLEASE DO NOT LET THESE STRIPS REMAIN LOST TO THE AGES!
It would mean a lot to the creators who worked on this strip 30 years ago, and to all of us who worked on the Dark Horse book if you would step forward and let us scan these two lost proof sheets.
