PRLog - Sep. 20, 2011 - LAS VEGAS -- LAS VEGAS – Shane Cook just died. Sure, he was a gambler, a drinker, an occasional petty crook, but despite being a loser, Shane was not a bad guy. That’s not always enough to prevent murder. Who killed Shane? Was it Mrs. Kim, who owns an antique store on the other side of the motel in which they both lived? Perhaps it was fellow resident Mr. Prudeholme, the crusty old man who wears his savings in gold? Could it have been Daniel Kahananui, the motel's ever-present clerk? What about the mysterious young woman from Parkview who often was seen playing her guitar for Shane?

"Tales from Fremont Street" explores the interconnected lives of these characters through six stories written and drawn by all-local talent, including Evan Dent, The Fillbach Brothers, Ed Hawkins, Jarret Keene, Victor Moya, Pj Perez, Deryl Skelton, F. Andrew Taylor and Warren Wucinich, wrapped in a cover painted by Jska Priebe and designed by Dylan Todd. This 48-page, black-and-white comic book anthology will debut at the Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival on Nov. 5, with all proceeds benefiting the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation’s support of the Comic Book Festival.

This commemorative comic follows in the footsteps of "Tales from the Boneyard,” which debuted at the 2010 Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival, featuring six stories tied around the theme of the Neon Boneyard.  To date, more than $1000 has been donated to the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District Foundation from sales of "Tales from the Boneyard."

"Tales from Fremont Street" is made possible in part by generous donations from Alternate Reality Comics, The Beat Coffeehouse & Records, Cosmic Comics, Double Down Saloon, Frankie's Tiki Room, and MaximuM Comics. The anthology is now available for pre-order through the Vegas Valley Comic Book Festival website at http://www.vegasvalleycomicbookfestival.org.
