JH Williams III & the Isotope
Present World Exclusive Webcast

(San Francisco) Superstar artist JH Williams III and award winning retailer Isotope - the comic book lounge announced today an in-store event for December 2nd. But this isn't your typical comic creator in-store in some far-off city, because Williams and the Isotope are giving you a chance to win an exclusive sketch of your choosing and see it drawn live by the artist in real time from the comfort of your own home. This two-hour webcast event which will be broadcast from inside the swank Isotope lounge in San Francisco will feature live sketching, an exclusive interview with the artist, and much revelry with those who are able to attend the event in person.

"What could be more appropriate for the artist of Desolation Jones?" said Isotope proprietor James Sime, "Desolation Jones is one of the best series rocking the retail shelves right now and JH Williams III's work is the epitome of jaw-dropping, so in celebration of this great book and artist we're throwing a bacchanalia that is truly awesome! Aside from covering the Isotope walls in original art from Desolation Jones and Promethea, and projecting Mister Williams' work on our massive eight-foot screen, and cracking open the finest of adult beverages, and inviting in our friends from Dark Garden corset shop to come and party, and getting everyone in on the fun with a worldwide broadcast interview and show... we're going to hook up one lucky winner anywhere on the planet with a free sketch from the man himself that the whole world can see getting drawn live. Now, that's pretty cool!"

For those who will be attending the event in person, Sime promises a terrific time and some special surprises. "If you've ever been to the Isotope for an event you know how we do it. But in celebration of this amazing book, awesome artist, and momentous event we're taking this one to the next level and pulling out all the Isotope stops! My staff and I are ready to rock your worlds all over again with a truly legendary event, and the man of the hour, JH Williams iii, is going to be at the epicenter of it all!"

Using the latest in state of the art Macromedia technology, the Desolation Jones Bacchanalia will be broadcast in full-screen glory with both audio and video so that virtual participants will be able to get a good look at the event as well as hear what artist JH Williams III has to say about Desolation Jones and the techniques he uses to make the pages come alive. "It's amazing to have the technology to do something like this and get to interact with fans in a completely new way," said JH Williams III, "What could be cooler than to get to get to pick a winner's sketch suggestion and draw it live on international webcast from inside the Isotope in San Francisco?"

Keeping with the event's high-tech theme, eligible sketch suggestions are to be sent to the Isotope via email until midnight Pacific Time on December 1st. JH Williams III will choose the winning suggestion based on what he likes most and draw it live in front of a global audience. Both international and domestic entries are welcome, but all entries are required to include a valid mailing address so that the winning sketch can be mailed to the winner's front door.

"Mister Williams wants to hear your most brilliant, your funniest, and your most crazy suggestions so don't disappoint us, people!" said Sime, "Fire up that email, reach for the glory and the gusto and get those suggestions in. And don't forget to tune in to this once in a lifetime event to see your sketch drawn live!"
