________________________________________________________________
That's right, folks:  It's SPIDER-MAN weekend!
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!
