Detroit Fanfare, Peter Weller, Party, Post Office, Progress
Check it out, coming up on September 24th and 25th it's the Detroit Fanfare, a big comic book convention in downtown Detroit: http://www.detroitfanfare.com . RoboCop star Peter Weller will be there and we will too, representing the project at our very own RoboBooth. Yes this is awesomely nerdy and yes this is awesomely awesome. We'll be sure to take pictures.
At our booth we'll have updated illustrations of the statue, awesome Detroit RoboCop shirts, the Detroit RoboCop statue story and timeline so far, and, somewhat wildly, the debut of a 4-feet X 6-feet crowdfunded oil painting-turned-video game called "The Spirit of Detroit Vs The Blight" that includes RoboCop as a playable character: http://bit.ly/pTku4O .
On the night of Saturday the 24th there will be an after party at PJ's Lager House ( http://pjslagerhouse.com -- a great time to cash in on your free drink if you're in that reward bracket ) with all door money going to Forgotten Harvest ( http://forgottenharvest.org ) as featured by RoboCharity.
