    I am interested in getting Jason Aaron into my store for a signing the first weekend of July. I manage the comic department of the largest location in the Vintage Stock franchise located in Joplin, MO. I am hosting a Super Hero Day in July and I would love to have him in. I haven’t had much luck contacting him through other means. If you can help me out this way I would appreciate it. I am good friends with Jeremy Haun and I currently have him on board for this event and I am trying to get a few others.

    Thanks for you time and any help you can provide.
