Sam Raimi's adaptation of the beloved Marvel comic opens nationwide today, May 3. If you haven't already bought a ticket, now is the time to call up your local theater and give 'em your charge card details, because SPIDER-MAN is starting to sell out! Read on to find out more about this weekend's SPIDER-MAN-related events, in this special FREE COMIC BOOK DAY EDITION of DRAGON'S BREATH! >> "SPIDER-MAN" OPENS *TONIGHT*! ________________________________________________________________ If you're local to Columbia, pay a visit to our friends at Columbiana Place Cinemas (1250 Bower Parkway, off Harbison Boulevard). They've got SPIDER-MAN showings starting every 40 minutes throughout the evening, with a special Spidey Trivia Challenge prepared by Heroes and Dragons! Also, comic book artists SANFORD GREENE and GREG ADAMS will be set up at the theater from 6:00pm to 9:00pm tonight and tomorrow (May 3-4). >> About SANFORD GREENE << SANFORD GREENE has long been a part of the Columbia comics community, working on such titles at Vineyard Press' A STRANGER'S TALE before landing gigs on SPYBOY and PLANET OF THE APES at Dark Horse. Sanford is currently working on ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN for DC Comics, and his first issue (#604) will go on sale next Wednesday, May 8. You can visit him online at http://www.SanfordGreene.com. >> About GREG ADAMS << GREG ADAMS has been a vital part of the comics industry for the past ten years, working with a diverse range of pencillers on projects that are literally too numerous to list here! He is perhaps best known as the inker on Marvel Comics' THUNDERBOLTS, but his vast body of work also includes numerous SPIDER-MAN one-shots and mini-series. As you can imagine, he's *very* excited about the SPIDER-MAN premiere! Though he doesn't have his own web site (yet), Greg is selling some of his original art on eBay this weekend. Check out his listings at http://members.ebay.com/AboutMe/[email protected]. Sanford and Greg have collaborated on a special SPIDER-MAN print that will be available *only* at the SPIDER-MAN premiere. Both artists will be on hand to sign the print and talk about their experiences with SPIDER-MAN and in the comics industry from 6:00pm to 9:00pm, so don't miss out! >> COLUMBIANA PLACE SHOWTIMES << 11:20am 12:00pm (noon) 12:40pm 1:40pm 2:10pm 3:00pm 3:50pm 4:40pm 5:20pm 7:00pm 7:40pm 8:20pm 9:00pm 10:00pm 10:30pm 11:20pm 11:50pm (If you can't make it to Columbiana Place, both Chad and I will also be going to the 10:45pm show at Dutch Square Cinemas.
