Las Vegas’ comic book community came together once again to help those in need during the release party for The Utopian trade paperback on Saturday, Jan. 22 at Alternate Reality Comics.

Fans, friends and family turned out en force for the event, which not only featured Utopian creator Pj Perez and cover artist Hernan Valencia signing copies of the recently released paperback collection, but also a 25-cent back issue sale, and food in the parking lot from the extremely popular Slidin’ Thru slider truck.

The event was a benefit for The Shade Tree shelter for women, children and pets. Two car loads of donations were brought in by customers, and almost $200 from the back issue sale was raised for the shelter as well.
