As you know, we have all been touched by the tragedy taking place at the Batman premier in Aurora, Colorado. As many of you also know, we are local to the comic book and gaming scene here in Colorado. While many emotions and thoughts have passed through our minds regarding the massacre, yesterday was a time for grief, bonding and honoring the memories of the victims.

Additionally, please stay tuned as we will be announcing our plans to work closely with Denver Comic Con to raise funds for the victim’s families.
