|Rob and John with some young superhero fans|
I'm (Rob) a big comic book reader and collector. That's how we got to know John who writes superhero and superpets books for young readers at Random House in NYC.

In January 2014, Steve told me that the Annapolis Book Festival held in a private school and with a huge focus on kids, would be the best place for John's appearance. So, we worked toward that. I put Steve and John in touch with each other and it happened.
It started with an idea in September, and became a reality in April. SO, never give up on your ideas.
What's really great is that John SOLD OUT of all of his books that Third Eye Comics ordered !
THIRD EYE COMICS - THE comics shop. If you want comics, graphic novels. toys or related stuff, Third Eye is a HUGE comics shop that has everything (I would love the 3 foot statue of Superman they're selling , but Tom and I have no place to put it. LOL). Go to their website or facebook page: http://www.thirdeyecomics.com/.
Steve and Trish and crew put out a weekly rundown of what's coming out, have appearances of artists and writers, game weekends, and so much more. Whether you want to read about the Walking Dead, Captain America, Superman, or independent comics, they've got it all.
